What's so great about the Uber Falcon Blade?

  1. I know it makes you hit an enemy with it two times per attack, but it only has 26 attack power, yet I hear people saying it's basically the best sword in the game. So what I don't get is, even though it hits twice, with such low attack power, mathematically speaking, how could it be so powerful?

    So it only really shines when your really high leveled?

    Ok, could anyone give me a level range for when I should be using the Uber Falcon Blade? At the moment, my sword user is a level 40 paladin with a lot of strength training with warrior and gladiator. When should I give it to him to start to see how good the UFB is?

    I just defeated Baramos, and the Uber Falcon Blade did serious damage the whole battle, the way I did this was by using oomph. If you want to use the blade to AMAZING effectiveness, up your sword guys attack, and then start attacking with Falcon Slash.

Accepted Answer

  1. Your strength makes up for it. If you have 400 strength use a sword with 100 attack power, that's one attack at 500.
    If you have 400 strength and use a ufb with 26 strength, that's two attacks at 426x75% = 319.
    If the enemy's defense is low enough that will definitely do more damage.
    But it's not that great on high defense enemies.

  1. Correct, it does shine best at higher strength stats at higher levels. Some people also like using a falcon blade with falcon slash when trying to kill metal enemies, as it will attack 4 times on a single target. But as yab said, if an enemy's defense is too high (especially on later grotto and legacy bosses), you won't see the benefit.
