[Repost for correct info, because the time limit on editing the original had expired.]

I was bored, and felt like contributing something. There's been a couple cursed weapon threads in the past few days, not to mention the fact that I myself was curious about some things. Anyway, here goes:

Cursed Weapon Information
Cursed weapons are among the most powerful weapons in the game. To obtain one, you must navigate the dreaded Palace of the Dead, and to unlock its power you must permanently sacrifice a member of your party. The weapon's stats will be based on the stats of the sacrificed unit in the following manner:

ATK = (Base STR + Base DEX) * 0.6
DEF = (Base STR + Base VIT) * 0.6
Added STR/VIT/DEX/AGIL/AVD/INT/MND/RES = 1/2 sacrificed unit's base stats
Added HP/MP = 1/4 sacrificed unit's base HP/MP (capped at 50)
RT = 1/2 sacrificed unit's current RT (rounded down)
Damage type modifier (Crushing, Slashing or Piercing) = (Base STR + Base DEX) * 0.1
Elemental affinity modifier = (Base INT + Base MND) * 0.1
Racial bonus modifier = (Base VIT + Base AGI) * 0.1

The actual damage type, elemental affinity and racial bonus are determined by the class of the sacrificed unit. Any class has a chance to produce any element, but certain classes are highly predisposed towards certain elements. Each weapon will have one damage type, elemental affinity and racial bonus. Classes with two or more damage types or racial bonuses will assign one of them at random.

Miscelaneous Facts about Cursed Weapons
-- Only generic units can become a cursed weapon. NO unit with a Warren Report entry can be used.
-- Weapons have standard class restrictions, but no level requirement.
-- The following 1h cursed weapons exist: sword, katana, dagger, blowgun. All others are 2h only.
-- Cursed spears have range 1-2; Bows have range 3-8, Fusils have range 3-9, Blowguns have range 3-4.
-- You can only have one of each type of cursed weapon. If you get another, it will be sold automatically. 1H and 2H Swords/Katanas count as different types. To get another cursed weapon of the same type, you must first sell the one you already have.

Hey pretty cool but why is songstress listed there if only generics can become weapons?

Is there something about the way I type that makes it sound angry? Maybe it's just something about the way you read.

Damn, I get a sticky, then someone notices an error. *sigh*

My bad, I've never encountered the enemy personally. Oh well. At least it's on the first page. :P

Thanks for pointing that out though, Were Tiger.

Also note that although the bow is a two hand bow, they can be used by ninja.
This implies:

- You can use a ninja to snap to the cursed bow
- You can make a crushing damaged bow and do significant damage to things which are normally resistant to your arrows
- Another ninja can used the snapped cursed weapon. With element bonus it can easily be the strongest bow a ninja could use. It also have range 8 instead of range 6 of one hand bows.

Does anyone else have other creative use of cursed weapons?
So far I have heard:
- bounded earth spellbook for earth elemental aoe finisher
- elemental guns
- elemental blowguns

any other ideas? also please elaborate on advantage of doing such snapping.
