Weapon-rating megathread: READ THE OP BEFORE POSTING

#51RaltriosPosted 4/6/2012 2:04:14 PM
Now, I have an Aurum Bow I can make, but I don't know if I should...

Aurum Bow
Ranged: 3 1/2 Melee: 3 1/2
Poison +1
Shot Homing +2
Overall Defense +1
Knockback Defense +1
Speed +3
Evasion +1

If not, I'll see if I can't get a better Kraken Arm. I've got a good Palutena Sword I want to fuse into either an Aurum Bow, Phosphora Bow, Divine Bow, or Meteor Bow.


I don't think I have Aurum bows unlocked, so I can't say I know about any bonuses they might have, but... Again, I don't think poison ever helps anybody, but the other mods look pretty good. You'd be better off trying for more ranged stars, though. The melee is a helpful Claw counter, but 7 times out of 10 you'd be losing any weapons clash with them anyway. Well, it might be worth it if you aren't losing any materials you like using or think could be used elsewhere.

Optical Blade (Value 303)
Ranged: 5
Melee: 2.5
Shot defense +1
Health +1
Freezing +2
Shot range +1
Speed +2

I have a few Blades I like to use on occasion, but this one is one of the more difficult ones for me to use. I just seem to have a really hard time hitting anything with it. When I do, it does great at both long range and melee, but there must be some sort of trick to wielding it that I haven't figured out yet.

--Phoenix Arm Value: 264
Ranged: 3 Melee: 3
{Burning +1} {Side dash ch. shot +1}
{Melee combo +4} {Melee Dash Attack +3}
{In-peril Autododge +2}

--Capricorn Club Value: 187
Ranged: 2.5 Melee: 0
Nothing passes nor special

So the result is an
Aquarius Blade Value: 241
Ranged: 2 Melee: 2
traits in { }

I want a samurai gaol or an aquarius blade but I'm not sure if the traits make up for the crappy stars also it has freeze on melee iirc


Nice username.

Those melee modifiers will help you score freezes. Would be nice if its melee stars were higher though. At range... meh. You're going to have problems with claws, I think. Just be careful. 7/10

I just got this out of multiplayer:
Insight Staff (273)
3/0.5
Overall defense +5
Freezing +2
Shot Range +1
Speed +1

It's meh. Optical blades are meant for range, not melee.


Also will someone STICKY THIS THREAD? It's ridiculous having to track it down through 100 or so topics.

Volcano Arm...it's not gonna melt my hand off, is it?
#55InhaledCornPosted 4/6/2012 8:37:35 PM
Ah, here it is. *tracks topic*

I got a Taurus Arm I'm thinking of making.

5R/5M
Health +1
Heart Bonus +1
Shot Defense +1
Running Speed +1
Melee Dash Attack +1

I ask because, if I do make it, I'd lose a decent Palutena Bow and Laser Staff.

It seems ok, but you should go for more than just +1s

so I guess 7/10


Heres the flintlock I've been bragging about for about a week now:

6 range
0 Melee

Shot Range 3
Standing Ch Shot 6
Petrify 4
Shot homing -3

Pretty beastly. Melee obviously isn't important for a flintlock, and neither is homing. Petrify probably isn't all that useful at range, because you should be going for OHKOs, but it may help you if you get caught in an up close battle. 10.

Phosphora Bow

Shot Range certainly makes up for the lack of Melee and negative Melee Combo.

I have two awesome weapons, but since I'm allowed to post one, I'll go with the Phoenix Arm.

Value 305
Range 5.5
Melee 3

Shot Defense +1
Shot Range +1
Standing Shot +1
Effect duration +2
Knockback recovery +1

Pretty basic, but with its burn effect and homing dash, it's a real beast in most of my matches (especially with the powers I equipped) and a MONSTER in most of my solo playthrough.

Looks like an amazing arm. Too bad it doesn't have Freeze, as Burn+Freeze is a pretty lethal combo for the foe, more-so when the person that inflicts BF is an Arm user.

Bumping because I'm seeing weapon-rating topics pop up again.

That's a pretty damn good weapon. So far as I've seen, you'll do way better with a weapon that's all-around good than one that just has specific attacks that are really strong. Effect duration +2 is great with burning too.
