Binance Weapons – The must-have items for novice
On August 17, Faraland cooperated with Binance NFT to “list” more than 10,000 Mystery Boxes, including 2 sets of extremely rare Binance items and other weapons. With Faraland’s strong popularity, ten thousand boxes sold out in just about 0.1 second. I watched every second, but I couldn’t buy it in time, so I had to wait for Binance weapons to be listed on the market. This shows Faraland have fared better compared to other NFT games, like Thetan who also got listed on Binance NFT last week, 2000 items, and sold out in less than 10 seconds.
And while waiting for the item to show up on the market, I realized something:
1. The Binance item is the only weapon that has Common rarity.
Browsing through the market, you guys can see that the items for races like Human, Orc, Elf, and Fairy mostly have the least rarity, or indeed, there are only TWO UNCOMMON which are the Uncrustable Dagger and the Artemis bow while the rest items are Rare or higher. The higher the rarity, the lower the chance of getting it. Binance items are just COMMON that can be understood as “novice items”, they are published for those who want to fully experience the game but do not have enough financial assets to buy high-rare items, or for players who put all assets in the heroes without enough gear to equip, so at least the heroes still have thing to equip=)).
2. Binance Items are the only weapons that can be equipped at Level 1.
The rarer the item, the higher the level needed to equip it. Just like how I named it “the novice item”, even level 1 characters can still wear it since 4 of the weapons from Binance are just COMMON, making it a lot easier to complete story-based quests at the beginning of the game. For example, two UNCOMMON weapons, Uncrustable Dagger and Artemis bow, both require Level 3. While there are Binance items that can be used right at level 1. I see this as a very clever approach by the game developers for the reason that not all hero holders will have enough Fara to stake. This allowed players with small fund still can use equipment from the early stage. They can still progress further in the game just by owning a common weapon. And for you guys, it also saves resources by not dividing it sub-team heroes, so that you can invest all in the strongest squads to earn.
3. Binance items are weapons with slightly better stats than Gacha weapons of the same tier.
For this point, I think it’s understandable, with the items in Gacha, when used in sets of 2, 4, and 6, will receive more stats that are buffed according to the level of progress. With Binance items that came out without set (except for 2 super rare sets), the remaining weapons are a perfect choice. Here is a small example of the difference between 2 Fairy items:
The Joyce RARE knife of Binance has stats of 5 STR, 5 AGI, 4 LUK + 12 Hand Dmg, HP + 25.
The Dazzling Summer EPIC bow has stats of 2 STR, 4 AGI, 1 INT, 2 LUK +40 Hand Dmg, HP +25.
In comparison, Joyce Knife is slightly better in stats, only inferior in Physical Damage, but I also want to remind you guys that the drop rate between RARE item and an EPIC item will be very different, and it’s even more difficult to forge it to tier 3.
As for ORC with the same RARE tier, the difference is even bigger:
Cheetara Chakram has stats of 2 STR, 3 AGI, 1 LUK, and +34 Physical Dmg
Olwen ax has stats of 7 STR, 5 AGI, 2 LUK, +15 Physical Dmg and 38 HP
You can see that Olwen’s Axes stats are a bit better.
At the moment, I don’t know the developers’ STR, AGI, INT, and LUK calculation mechanism, but with just 1 Stat difference in the market, the price has fluctuated a lot, so a difference of 5 STR from weapons will definitely be something to look forward to.
So am I trying to devalue Gacha items? No, since Binance items have an irreparable weakness in exchanging for conveniences and stats that Binance weapons don’t come in sets. This makes some of these items lose their advantage in the battle gradually. You guys can get items from Gacha to get tons of stats and effects when using the 2, 4, and 6 items from the same set. On the other hand, Binance items are just strong stat items to compensate for players who have not been able to get enough Gacha items to benefit from the set; and want a straightforward weapon with good stats to accompany the character for a long time.
Currently, because the game developers are focusing on the text game and official game, I predict that within the next 1 to 2 months, temporarily, there will be no Gacha items. This is a good time for you guys to strengthen your line-up with weapons from Binance. I’m confident with the above data that it is enough to show that Faraland has a well-balanced team of games with extensive knowledge, and I think when the game is officially released, Faraland will be a new giant in the NFT gaming industry.

The game will be released in Q4 2021.
Faraland is an innovation project combining NFT technology and gaming experience. Not only are all exquisitely digital collectibles created using blockchain technology, but all NFT in Faraland can also be integrated into Faraland games later, which will help them increase the value. NFT is the soul of this project. Each Hero, NFT of Faraland, is unique. Each collectible is matchless, genuine, and varies in rarity. Faraland Universe has many different races like human, orc, angel, demon, Dragonborn, elf, and fairy, awaiting the users to discover.
Faraland is different compared to other NFT projects where NFT is solely used for collection. With many exciting gaming activities, Faraland’s users can use their NFT heroes in many unique ways, from equipping them with powerful weapons or shining armors to engaging them in various thrilling battles. It’s a solid and exciting game with a fundamental and engaging storyline. We also focus on the “play to earn” mechanism, making Faraland far beyond a regular game. A variety of options are also available for users, including reinvesting in the game, making your heroes stronger, or cashing out. Our vision is to make Faraland a “dream job” by providing players worldwide opportunities to generate regular income from the project.
