On one of my old messed up characters I HAD an old level (10/12/14, my character is level 15 and had it equipped) +3 Potency +48 USP dagger.
No Risia stuff on it whatsoever. Just an old spell caster dagger. I probably had the weapon since 2007.
It was rendered useless with the advent of the Combustion, Corrosive, etc weapons anyway, so this is not a big deal to me at all.
But it is now a level 20 item and called an Epic Item? Shakes my head in wonderment.
Good news, its value tripled, roughly. Plus, I freed up an inventory space.
