Darksiders 3 Weapons Enhancements Guide

Want to make the perfect build for your shape of Scorn? Fret not! This Darksiders 3 Weapons Enhancement Guide is here to guide you on your journey while trying to explain everything precisely and easily.

Darksiders 3 Weapons Enhancements

Even though weapons can be enhanced on their own, they aren’t as effective unless you fill each weapon’s slots with “Enhancements”.

Enhancements are basically gems that can be linked to an item and they will provide active and passive buffs when you have that specific weapon with that gem equipped.

There are several enhancements in Darksiders 3 and each enhancement has a specific effect. Be sure to follow this guide and we will link and explain all the effects in the game.

Each enhancement can be upgraded a number of times using Artifacts too, and we will be discussing them accordingly. Without further ado, let us begin!

Fortifier Enhancement

Fortifier Enhancement is the first of the enhancements that can be unlocked very early in the game. You can find the enhancement very early on, in Haven.

It is on the main path after the first space you crawl through. You’ll know its nearby if you see an ogre-type enemy guarding a red-colored web.

The Fortifier Enhancement offers +5% to +18% HP for just being socket-ed into one of the items.

Another thing to note is that: if you activate that weapon’s Hollow which has this enhancement equipped, it’ll deal +3% to +15% Physical and Arcane damage.

One of the recommended weapons for this Fortifier is the Lance of Scorn. Basically, any ranged melee weapon is good with this enhancement.

Chaos Enhancement

The Chaos Enhancement is one of the best enhancements in the game, that offers active lifesteal as long as the weapon you’ve equipped Chaos on, is using the Hollow ability. However, not very high lifesteal, it is still a lot: 0.5% to 2.5%.

Chaos also offers +10% to +50% increase in duration of the Havoc skill even if the weapon’s Havoc skill isn’t active. This is a lot of duration.

Using this weapon on a high chain weapon is amazing, and you’ll be able to recover a lot of HP almost instantly.

Leviathan Enhancement

Leviathan is an enhancement for berserkers. This enhancement can be purchased form the Soul dealer: Vulgrim for 5000 souls. Leviathan will passively regenerate 15 to 90 health per minute when it is equipped to a weapon.

Additionally, if you toggle the weapon’s Hollow ability while having this enhancement equipped, you’ll gain +3 to +15 lurchers when breaking objects with that weapon. Best weapons for this enhancement include Chains of Scorn and Barbs of Scorn.

Of course, this enhancement can be upgraded to make you a godly entity with almost instant HP regen.

Shade Enhancement

The Shade is an enhancement that must be used if you want to be a tanky Fury. Shade offers 7% to 35% Arcane damage increment when you’re using the Hollow skill of the weapon you’ve equipped this enhancement on.

Additionally, the enhancement also offers 10% to 30% Arcane damage intake reduction passively. This is a lot, considering most of the bosses in Darksiders 3 do Arcane damage. Shade can be found on the path to the Maker’s Forge.

You’ll find a tornado on the side of the path, take this tornado through the Thunder Hollow skill, and follow the path to find the enhancement on the upper ledge of a flooded room that can be found after jumping through the two buildings.

Juggernaut Enhancement

The Juggernaut is a very similar enhancement to the Shade Enhancement, but instead of the normal Arcane damage intake reduction, the Juggernaut enhancement will give you physical damage reduction passively.

Just like the Shade enhancement, the Juggernaut enhancement also offers you increased Physical damage done with the equipped weapon as long as you have the Hollow skill active.

You can find the Juggernaut Enhancement in the Nether area of Tangled Grotto. Head into Nether and you’ll eventually come into a room that’s almost pitch-black.

Crawl beneath the train near the entrance and you’ll end up in a cave with two bomb-spider bosses. Defeat the bosses and you’ll find the enhancement in the area.

Obscuris Enhancement

The Obscuris enhancement can be used to run away from the laws that normally binds enemies, effectively dealing more damage than normally possible.

Of course, the Obscuris can also be used to passively increase the window you will remain invincible in, too, by a whopping +8.3% to +25%.

If you use the weapon’s Hollow skill while this enhancement is into play, you’ll increase the amount of havoc you can deal by +5% to +20%. You can find Obscuris in Bonelands of the Hangman’s Tree area.

To be exact, the area underneath two nests of insects right after Hangman’s Tree that are pointing towards Bonelands should contain this enhancement. You may need to roam around in this area to find it.

Obscuris Upgrades

Azazel Enhancement

You can find Azazel after using the skill Force Hollow in the area of the Depths, right under the purple pillar. You’ll find the enhancement near the start of the area, right after the Forgotten Lake Vulgrim.

Azazel provides a passive ability to regenerate +6 to +18 Wraith Bar per minute. Of course, if you use a Weapon’s Hollow skill while having this enhancement equipped, you’ll generate a whopping +5% to +25% wraith per hit!

Using a high hit combo weapon like the Edge of Scorn or Salvation is a very good choice for this enhancement.

Azazel Upgrades
You can upgrade the Azazel to be more effective, though it might cost you Artifacts. Here’s what you need to know:

Unfocused

State Wraith generated per hit Wraith generated per minute Items Required

Marauder Enhancement

The Marauder is an enhancement for looters and for the people who want to to get rich fast. Of course, you aren’t Greed. No, you are hunting Greed. But if Greed has truly captivated your mind, this enhancement will only make your life a little bit easier.

While having this enhancement equipped, the chance for an item to drop from an enemy increases by +10% to +30%.

Additionally, if you use the weapon’s hollow you have this enhancement equipped on, you’ll gain an additional +5% to +30% chance to spawn a Health Lurcher. You can find the Marauder in the Hollows region of Blistering Bridge.

Specifically, the path that connects the Nether to the Hollows. You’ll end up in a room with a lava pool beyond the room you fought the Wrath. The enhancement should be at the edge of the lava pool room.

Marauder Upgrades
You can upgrade the Marauder to be more effective, though it might cost you Artifacts. Here’s what you need to know:

To be added later.

Fortune Enhancement

The Fortune enhancement can be found near the area where you start the battle with Gluttony, in the Sewage Egris Vugrim point of the Depths. The fortune isn’t exactly what you think it might be. That’s Marauder.

Instead, Fortune offers you better efficiency and potency when you use consumables. Not all consumables will get potency bonus, but most consumables, like the healing salves, will work.

Passively, when you use Fortune, you’ll increase the potency of a consumable by +10% to +30%.

Fortune also provides more Health and other Lurchers, a whopping +10% to +30% if you use the equipped weapon’s Hollow skill when you have Fortune equipped.

Rage Enhancement

The Rage is an enhancement that can be used to gain +10% to +50% Wrath reward from Wrath Lurchers passively, with just having this enhancement equipped on one of your weapons’ sockets.

Rage enhancement also actively offers a chance for an enemy to spawn a Wrath whenever they’re hit by your weapon’s Hollow ability. There’s a 5% to 25% for this to happen.

Of course, this might not seem like much, but in front of a horde of enemies, this is a very good enhancement. You can buy the Rage Enhancement from Vulgrim, the Soul Trader, for 5000 souls.

This enhancement works best on weapons that have AoE Hollow attacks like the Barbs of Scorn, Salvation and the Edge of Scorn.

Rage Upgrades
You can upgrade the Rage to be more effective, though it might cost you Artifacts. Here’s what you need to know:

Unfocused

State Chance for a weapon to spawn wrath Wrath reward increase per wrath lurcher Items Required

Balanced +25% +50% 1x Essence of a Chosen, 12x Angelic Artifact

Fafnir Enhancement

Fafnir reminds me of a specific weeb dragon. A-Anyways, Fafnir is a very peculiar enhancement that can be used for a berserker build against a horde of enemies. Heck, if you’re a very rich guy, this enhancement will deal a crap lot of damage.

Fafnir will increase damage by +.25% to +1.5% for every 2000 souls you are carrying in your inventory. This is the active effect. You may need to use your weapon’s Hollow ability to activate this effect.

Otherwise, you can also use the enhancement’s passive ability, that is 50% to 100% melee damage that is done on you, is reflected back to the attacker. 100% essentially makes you immortal against melee enemies.

You will be rewarded with Fafnir as soon as you beat Lust and return to Usiel. Usiel will reward you.

Fafnir Upgrades
You can upgrade the Fafnir to be more effective, though it might cost you Artifacts. Here’s what you need to know:

Unfocused

State Damage increase per every 2000 souls carried Damage reflection back on the attacker (melee) Items Required
Unfocused +0.25% +50% Null

Demonic

State Damage increase per every 2000 souls carried Damage reflection back on the attacker (melee) Items Required

Ultimate

State Damage increase per every 2000 souls carried Damage reflection back on the attacker (melee) Items Required
Balanced +1.5% +100% 1x Essence of a Chosen, 12x Angelic Artifact

Enoch Enhancement

The final enhancement in the guide, though not the most useless, is the Enoch enhancement. The Enoch enhancement can be used to increase the amount of Havoc bar you’ll regenerate per minute passively, by 3% to 18%.

Actively, Enoch provides +15% to +85% damage when your health falls beneath 25%. This is a lot if you really think about it.

Using Chains of Scorn will be super epic with this Enhancement, though I’m guessing the Ice powered Edge of Scorn will be more effective with Enoch because Enoch will provide you invincibility with its Wraith toggle ability.

Enoch can be found in the Hollows, just before the area with a statue. There should be a broken staircase nearby with a bunch of tornadoes.

Use Thunder Hollow ability to ride one of the tornadoes and you’ll find the Enhancement in the lava pool to the right side of you.
