Life stones are used to augument weapons, they drop from mobs, augument effects are random when you apply the life stones.
Soul stones are made to put Special Ability in te weapon, these can be buyed at giran luxury shop, the efect is fixed by the color of the soul stone.

To put focus on your sword you will need a soul stone of the level and color your weapon requires.

Ioveless, welcome to L2.

Starting from C-grade and above, ALL duals swords need to be enchanted to +4 in order to acquire their SA (Special Ability). Keeping this in mind, each dual sword cannot have any ability that you wish, hence you have to decide what combination of dual swords to use in order to get your desired ability.

In your situation, if you want to get focus, unfortunately sls*sls will NOT give that to you once you enchant it to +4, it WILL however, give you an increase in your attack speed, 6% attack speed that is.

i'm guessing your toon is B grade, therefore, you'll need +4 or higher tsu*sls to get the focus ability, that is just top 'Focus' duals, there are other duals in Bgrade that give focus, but tsu*sls is the top Focus duals. overall the top B duals are the sls*sls, but you dont get focus with them, only Haste ability, this increases your attack speed.

also, do remember what Levitra has mentioned above, that there is a 33% chance that going to +4 from +3, you'll crush your duals and turn them into crystals of its specific grade. which means you have a 66% chance to be successful.

on a separate note, LS or Life Stones are again grade dependent, and basically give you extra enhancements to your weapon, this basically customizes your weapon, you cannot trade it to any1 else or drop it for that matter, you have to "remove" its LS by going to the blacksmith and then be able to sell/trade. Soul Stones (other common name is Crystal-Red/Blue/Green) start from LvL1 and go all the way to LvL13 (i think now its 14 in hellbound), and these are used to put special abilities (focus, health, haste, etc.) on all weapons, EXCEPT dual swords, these include all Cgrade, Bgrade, Agrade, and Sgrade - swords (1h and 2h), blunts (1h and 2h), fists, daggers, and bows.

hope that wasnt too confusing. good luck and again welcome to L2.

/regards

edit: tyvm cinemexus for the correction, i edited the % success above.

Minor correction to the post above. The chance you will fail your enchant to +4 is around 33%, not 66%. There's a 66% chance of *success*.

Ioveless Thanks for bring to the attention of the lack on Stratics behave of the lifestone vs Soul Stone issue, though you can look here for the Possible SA's for Wepons up to S grade as well as duals, The S80 gear is still being worked on.

I will do my best to get the info on the Lifestones and Soul Stones to LordChaos to add to the site to prevent further confusion.

Just a correction: Not all weapons can have a Special Abillity. The exception is some C grade Mage weapons that are rarely used (exactly because they can't have an SA), but still exist in game. You can get them by exchanging another C grade weapon at the Blacksmith of Mammon. For instance, Horn of Glory.

Wait a sec...back up...what is your level? If you are between levels 40 - 51, you may use an SLS, the single sword, but you do not have the expertise to use the dual swords SLS*SLS. That is a B grade weapon, which you can use without penalty at level 52.

My hope is that you are indeed C grade and seeking to use the single sword, Samurai Longsword. Visit the town blacksmith and the NPC will tell exactly which level and color soul stone is needed for your desired special ability, as well as the other costs (e.g., the quantity of C grade gemstones needed, etc.).

However if you are indeed level 52+ and have not figured out how to add an SA, folks around here will start to question how you made it through C grade without learning these things?
