     What's new 0.9 (April 23, 2002)
     After procrasinating forever, it seems, I finally got shamed into sitting
     down and adding missing weapons. Added Section VI, the Mystery of the 
     Puzzle Stones.
    
     What's new 0.8 (February 27, 2002)
     Re-numbered and shuffled sections.  Added some paragraphs in Section II.
     Finished Section V, Alpha List with Location.
    
     What's new 0.6 (February 26, 2002):
     Added Section VII, weapons list sorted by skill level and damage/defense
     level.  This makes it easy to see at a glance what weapons are available
     at each skill level.  Locations of those weapons and the additional
     stats can be looked up in the specific weapons list.

     I.   Introduction
     -----------------
    
    
     This is not a general FAQ for Drakan:The Ancients' Gates, but a listing of
     Weapons, armor and a few other items, with relevant information for each
     Item (Skill Level, Durability, Price, etc.).  This guide is separated by
     Weapon type and armor, with hammer/mace/staff weapons together as 'blunt'
     weapons.  Added 'vampiric' weapon info to weapons notes, as well as the
     hint for losing the dagger to open up another slot.
    
     You will notice under each weapon either a number in parentheses, or a
     location.  The number in parentheses list the 'shop' this particular
     weapon may be purchased:  (1) Surdana Blacksmith Shop; (2)Andrellian
     Isles; (3) Ravenshold; (4) Valley of the Fallen Blacksmith Shop; 
     (5) Valley of the Fallen Windmill
    
     If the weapon is obtained in a manner other than purchase (from enemies or
     enemy areas), the area it can be obtained will be listed.

     IX.   Some Weapons Notes
     ------------------------
    
    
     Prices for items are the same in each place, with a few notable exceptions,
     those being high-level weapons available at the Windmill in the Valley of
     the Fallen.  After opening the third gate, these weapons will become
     available at the Blacksmith Shop in Surdana, at a greatly reduced price!
     I have listed these weapons twice, listed the separate location and each
     Price.  Additional items that are 'of the Order' are available in Surdana
     also at that time.
    
     If you obtain a weapon that is above your skill level, but you think you'll
     use it in the future, you can just drop it somewhere and it will stay there.
     +++Make sure you drop it in a place you can retrieve it again, though.+++
     The best place is at a blacksmith shop (Surdana, and Ravenshold are good
     ones to use since you can get back to them.  There is the option of
     selling any weapon to the  blacksmiths if you need money, they will
     keep it in their list for you to buy back.  If you notice, the old 
     weapons and armor you sold back to them is available also so be careful
     the bow you're buying isn't an old one of yours left with only 210 arrows
     max. 
    
     If you have been through an area and have run out of space to carry every-
     thing you want and need, go ahead and drop your armor.  That has saved me
     more than once, since I've sometimes gone into areas that cannot be 
     re-visted, with weapons I really like that were obtained from previous
     enemies and are irreplaceable.  I just end up dropping my armor, and it
     opens up four slots, enough to carry any additional trophies back to,
     ummm, civilization.  I can then just buy new armor without having lost
     any valuable weaponry. 
     
     The Chicken - a weapon that occasionally shows up in a shop, any shop at
     any time, it seems. I haven't come across one as yet, but am still hoping.
    
     AP = Armor Piercing.  For enemies with armor, a weapon with a lower damage
     rating is preferable if it is armor piercing.  In other words, you will do
     more damage with a bow having 9AP than a bow with 11.
    
     Repair - Your weapon durability will run down with use until it runs down
     to zero and unusable until repaired at one of the shops.  Each time a weapon
     is repaired, maximum durability will decrease, or amount of arrows will
     decrease, or maximum amount of protection will decrease depending on the 
     type of equipment.  Popular strategy is to let your weapons run down to 
     almost nothing before repairing, this way you ultimately get the most use
     out of them.
    
     Weapons with special attacks, as in the earth, fire, lightening, etc.
     blades, have ten special attacks available by pressing the circle button.
     Once these special attacks have been discharged, the weapon can then be 
     used to parry.
    
     The 'ultimate weapon' has been discovered...the Mournbringer Sword.  It 
     becomes available when you have obtained all four elemental swords.  Once
     you have them all, return to the Surdana Blacksmith and he will have it 
     offered for sale in his inventory.  Have fun with it! 
    
     Arrow Effects - that information still to come.
    
     'Vampiric' weaponry - I'm going to use Zauron's terminology to be consistent
     with his excellent faq.  This will describe weapons that restore your Exp to
     varying degrees.  There are vampiric weapons that can carry you through every
     level. (The Tick Sword, Skeletal Touch Sword, Demise Bow, Disembowler Axe,
     Mournbringer Sword)
    
     OPENING UP A SLOT - At one point in the game (you'll know when you get to
     it) you will have to pick up all your weapons and items.  To open up a slot,
     simple do not pick up Rynn's Dagger...leave it on the ground.  To do this,
     make sure you pick up your weapons by walking over them instead of using
     the shortcut.

     VIII.   Acknowledements
     -----------------------
    
     Thanks to posters on the GameFAQs' Drakan message board, the Faq writers
     board, Dallas for his Faq writing guide.  Thanks to the folks who posted
     information about the Chicken, a weapon I have yet to see.  I have to thank
     Zauron for his wonderful FAQ, which helped me through some sticky parts.
    
     Astral's and Jaeger's answer to a poster's question reminded me to add 
     info on what to do when you have more weapons you know what to do with 
     or can use at the moment...thanks.
    
     Also thanks to waspattack and Josh Howey for the Crown of Thorns info, and
     Jeff Reed for the Mithril Mace location.

     IX.  Version History
     ----------------------
    
     0.9   April 23, 2002
     Added weaponry - Dragonstrike bow, crown of thorns, mournbringer, flameburst
     bow, tempest sword, mithril scimitar, and added 'vampiric' to The Tick Sword
     Skeletal Touch Sword, Demise Bow and Disembowler.  Added the Mystery of the 
     Puzzle Stones section (I really want to know where those two missing stones
     are!).  Added the weaponry to the other sections, revised weapons notes and 
     acknowledgements section.
    
     0.8   February 27, 2002
     Finished Section V, the alpha list with location codes.  Reminder to myself
     that the next game I play I need to get to archery 8 to try out all the 
     bows to see what effects all the different arrows have.
    
     0.7   February 27, 2002
     Re-numbered and re-shuffled, changed format.  Changed text format so I 
     could select sections more easily.  Changed the Acknowledgements section
     and added a paragraph about the ultimate weapon in the Weapons notes 
     section.  Things left to do: one more section to complete, continue playing
     game so I can get the ultimate weapon so I can add it to this faq. Still 
     need to fill in a couple of blanks in the lists, too. 
    
     0.6   February 26, 2002
     Re-shuffled the Armor section to reflect skill-level order. Couple of small
     spelling corrections...ugh, still in typo hell.  Started on the Alpha List.
     added section VII, the total weapons list sorted only by skill level and
     damage, this way making it easy to see the weapons you have available at
     each skill level.
    
     0.5   February 25, 2002
     Completed yet another format check and spell check. Still need to work on
     the alpha listing but will submit first as is.
    
     0.4   February 24, 2002
     Finished (fingers crossed) the formatting, filling in the other sections,

     If you're thinking of using this for anything else, just don't. Even thinking
     about folks doing that kind of thing causes a great feeling of ennui to steal
     over me.  Just don't do it.
