Reverting saves is out of the question art this point as I'd have to start over but I haven't played it in so long I forgot none of my lvl 1 weapons would have a slot so knee jerked about none of them having one.
How would I unlock it in the save? Although im probably just going to make a lvl 1 and upgrade it correctly, since it worked for my cutter
Just changing the weapon Hex won't change the gem slots. So what you did is tell the game your +0 axe with no gem slots is now a +10 beast claw... with no gem slots. Right after the weapon durability there is a series of IDs that say if the slot is open, and what type it is. In game that is altered when you upgrade them. I would just edit the +0 axe to a +0 beast claw, and then edit in upgrade materials with other items to upgrade in game. All should be well, except the beast claw will have the same slots as the axe when you upgrade it. I can't recall if the beast claw has two radials and a waning or a triangle, but regardless it will have the radial, radial, triangle set up since that's what the axe has. Though that's ideal for a physical build.
hmm also.. i feel like editing a blood gems to change the skills u like doesnt seem to working right with me... got the skills i wanted... those rapid poison for chikage... but i am inflicting slow and rapid poisons and it doesnt build up alot... when dueling with a friend..
so idk what wrong just went there...
i have a feeling save editing blood gem is fix u can get the skills change but not the effects that suppose to be working.. know what i mean?
or maybe because i edit a noob blood gems into a best one... probably?
Make sure you used the codes for rapid poison and not slow poison. They are listed right next to each other in the code, so it's easy to make that mistake. Also, you need like 60 rapid poison for it to build up in 3 hits, IIRC, and in 3 hits you're usually dead in PvP anyway. The chikage with an additional 20-30 rapid poison will do this, so long as you're hitting with its transformed mode (the poison doesn't proc in the normal mode).
In my experience the gem effects work. They even work on armor, oddly enough. if you put a +20% beast gem effect on your armor, you do 20% more damage to beasts. Bizarre. I think rune effects work the same way.
So, go back and verify you used the rapid poison effects, that you're using the transformed mode, and that the stat screen shows the correct rapid poison effect on top of the 30 innate poison the chikage inflicts.
