    This is cool stuff, and I am most definitely not biased towards weapon mods at all. Nope.

    I am starting to do the elemental damages when the weapon reach +10.

    Stay tuned !

    +10? why not El Shards?
    and the item requires more per upgrade level
    first enhancement: 30 El Shards
    second enhancement: 80 El Shards
    third enhancement: 110 El Shards
    btw they need to be same type, unidentified will give a random element

    Oh, yes! I definitively love weapon upgrade systems like this.
    The only feedback I'd have is that a difference between 3% and 40% is a bit much, maybe tune down the scale a tiny bit more on the sense between 5% minimum and 30% maximum per level, that's just my 50 cents. Still, this reminds me of all the mmo's and rpg's I've played so mad props and support from me.

    Also, since you replace your weapons very often on Terraria and keep weapon variety and progression in stand maybe it's an idea to be able to "break down" some of your equipment upgrades and have a chance to get some of the materials used back.

    On first glance, it looks like leveling up your equipment will make the game far too easy. There has to be a difficulty overhaul in order for level +10 items to remain balanced.

    It's very difficult to reach +11, you'll need hours of farming or extrem luck to get that.

    Daily Update : Currently Updating this mod to the new version of tModLoader !

    I believe mods will move your thread to the released section if you ask them.
