To roam around the world of Aesperia in Tower of Fantasy with relative ease, you need to advance your weapons to make them stronger. Without doing this, you’ll find fights take a lot longer than they should. ToF uses a material called Fusion Cores to advance your Simulacrum/weapons, but how do you get Fusion Cores for weapon upgrades in Tower of Fantasy?
How to advance your weapons using Fusion Cores in Tower of Fantasy
To get Fusion Cores for weapon upgrades in Tower of Fantasy, you need to get a duplicate SR/SSR weapon using the Special Orders or by completing a quest. Though the quest method is not as common as using Special Orders.
If you have an SSR, such as Crow or Tsubasa, and want to increase their weapons’ star level. You need to get a duplicate Crow or Tsubasa from Special Orders. Once you have obtained a duplicate, it will instantly turn into a Fusion Core for you to use for weapon upgrades.
How to use Fusion Cores in Tower of Fantasy
To use Fusion Cores in Tower of Fantasy is relatively straightforward. Say you just got a Crow duplicate and obtained a Thunderblades Fusion Core. Head to the weapons menu, click on the Thunderblades weapon, then Upgrade.

All Fusion Cores are named after the duplicate weapon they were made from. You cannot use another Fusion Core to advance another weapon.
