Once you have the combination above you will need to do another step to get the evolved item. Evolved items will appear in chests after 10 minutes when you reach the 8+ weapon and the correct passive item requirement. At this point simply kill enemies that drop chests and open them to receive your evolved weapon. Note that no all of the items currently have evolutions in the game.
