    ==================
    2.0 - INTRODUCTION
    ==================
    
    Hopefully this guide will allow people to make some sense of the complex weapon
    system in Dark Cloud 2.  In my opinion, this is one of the nicer features of
    the game, but can be a bit daunting, especially if you never played the first
    game.
    
    For any formulas appearing in this guide, I'll use the following symbols to
    mean the floor function:
    
    []
    
    The floor function simply means that you round all decimals down, never up.  So
    [4.1] = 4, and [4.9] = 4.
    
    The following symbols mean the ceiling function:
    
    {}
    
    The ceiling function means that you round all decimals up, never down.  So
    {4.1} = 5, and {4.9} = 5.
    
    
    ============
    3.0 - BASICS
    ============
    
    There are several ways to obtain weapons for Max and Monica:
    
    -Buy from a shop
    -Find in dungeons (both clown chests and regular chests)
    -Get 100% of certain georamas
    -Win as prizes in Finny Frenzy or the Fish Tournament
    -Build-up your existing weapons
    
    The last option is the only way to get the most powerful weapons, and it's also
    fun.  Weapon upgrading is complicated so it makes up the majority of the
    information in this guide.
    
    
    ------------------
    3.1 - Weapon Types
    ------------------
    
    Max uses hammers/wrenches in his right hand, and guns in his left.  Monica uses
    swords in her right hand, and magic armbands in her left hand.
    
    The guns have three damage types: normal, grenade, and beam.  These
    distinctions are important when considering the weaknesses of monsters, because
    some weapons are more effective than others for each monster.  Hammers/wrenches
    are considered to be the same damage type.
    
    The clubs Max uses to play Spheda can also be used as weapons.
    
    
    ------------
    3.2 - Combos
    ------------
    
    You can execute combos with Max's and Monica's right-hand weapons by repeatedly
    pressing the attack button.  Each weapon has a maximum number of combo moves.
    Wrenches are faster and have more combo moves than hammers, but hammers
    typically have higher max stats.  The number of combo moves each weapon is
    capable of is listed in section 5.
    
    
    ----------------
    3.3 - Durability
    ----------------
    
    If you played the first Dark Cloud, and nearly threw your PS2 out the window
    when you broke your Chronicle 2 sword, don't worry because weapons won't
    disappear in Dark Cloud 2.
    
    Weapons wear down with use, and they will eventually break.  The two parameters
    that govern wear are Weapon Hit Points (WHP) and Durability (Du).  When the WHP
    of a weapon reaches 0, the weapon will break, and will no longer function until
    you repair it.  The WHP for melee weapons will decrease each time you hit a
    monster.  For guns/magic, WHP will decrease each time you fire, whether you hit
    a monster or not.  The rate at which WHP decreases is determined by Du.  The
    higher the better.
    
    WHP can be restored with the proper type of repair powder.  There are three
    types.
    
    -Repair Powder: used to repair wrenches/hammers, swords, and Ridepod weapons
    -Gun Repair Powder: used to repair guns
    -Armband Repair Powder: used to repair armbands
    
    If a weapon breaks, it won't disappear, but it won't damage the enemy until you
    repair it.  The only negative side effect of a weapon breaking is that it will
    lose a small amount of ABS.
    
    The maximum WHP is 255 for all weapons.
    
    
    -----------
    3.4 - Stats
    -----------
    
    Besides WHP and Du, weapons have several other stats:
    
    At - Attack
    Fl - Flame
    Ch - Chill
    Li - Lightning
    Cy - Cyclone
    Sm - Smash
    Ex - Exorcism
    Be - Beast
    Sc - Scale
    
    At is the attack power of the weapon.  The other stats are for special damage
    types such as elemental damage.  Most enemies are weak or strong against one
    or more of these types of damage.
    
    There is also a stat called Synth Points (SP).  This is discussed in
    section 4.3.
    
    
    ======================
    4.0 - WEAPON UPGRADING
    ======================
    
    ---------
    4.1 - ABS
    ---------
    
    ABS is gained by picking up the little blue spheres dropped by defeated
    enemies.  When a weapon's ABS meter fills up, the weapon will gain a level.
    The weapon's level is indicated after a plus sign.  So a Drill Wrench +5 has
    been leveled up five times.
    
    Weapons naturally gain WHP, At, and Du upon level up.  Du gets +1 per level.
    For most weapons, At gets +2 per level for the first five levels.  If the
    weapon has enemy kill requirements (the ultimates and penultimates) then At
    gets +3 per level for the first five levels.  All weapons get +1 At per level
    after that.  Flyojumper figured out that weapons can go up +1, +2, or +3 WHP
    per level (it's random).  He calculated the average increase to be about 1.63.
    
    Weapons start with a base ABS requirement.  This is the amount of ABS required
    to get to +1 and +2.  After that, the amount of ABS needed per level increases.
    All weapons follow a specific pattern for this increase.
    
    As an example, the ABS requirements for the first few levels of a Battle Wrench
    look like this:
    
    32
    32
    48
    64
    80
    
    As you can see, the first two levels are the same, and after that, it goes up
    by 16 per level, which is half of the base requirement.  The parameter that
    varies between weapons is the base requirement.  Higher level weapons have
    higher base requirements.
    
    Now here are a couple formulas which are usable for all weapons.
    
    B = ABS required to reach +1 (this is the base ABS requirement)
    
    If your weapon is a +N weapon, you'll need this many ABS to reach the next
    level:
    
    B + (N - 1) * B / 2
    
    In order to reach +N, you'll need this much ABS total:
    
    B + ((N * (N + 1)) / 2 - 1) * B / 2
    
    The max level is 99.  The weapon can still earn SP and At after that, but
    the level won't increase, and neither will the ABS requirements.  Note that
    these formulas can result in values that have a fractional part if the weapon
    in question is a gun.  This is because some guns have odd base ABS
    requirements.  When present, the fractional part is always 0.5 and is not
    rounded by the game.
    
    When an enemy is killed, it's ABS value is split between 8 blue ABS balls.  The
    fractional part is kept, if any.  For example, a Bat is worth 6 ABS and will
    drop 8 ABS balls worth 0.75 ABS each.  The stored ABS on a weapon increases as
    these balls are picked up, also keeping fractional parts.  As each ball is
    picked up, the ABS needed to level up the weapon is compared with the stored
    ABS value rounded up to a whole number.  If this rounded value is greater than
    or equal to the ABS requirement, the weapon levels up, and any extra ABS from
    that ball is discarded.
    
    Example 1: a Battle Wrench needs 32 ABS to get to +1.  It's current ABS is
    30.25.  A Bat is killed and a single ABS ball worth 0.75 ABS is picked up.  Now
    the current ABS is 31.0.  The weapon does not level up.
    
    Example 2: a Battle Wrench has 30.5 ABS.  An ABS ball worth 0.75 ABS is picked
    up.  Now the current ABS is 31.25.  Rounded up this is 32, and equal to the ABS
    requirement, so the weapon levels up to +1.
    
    Example 3: a Battle Wrench has 0 ABS.  An ABS ball worth 50 ABS is picked up.
    The weapon levels up to +1 and the current ABS is set to 0.  The extra 18 ABS
    is lost.
    
    If a weapon with ABS Up is used for the killing blow, almost everything works
    the same.  The monster's ABS value is multiplied by 1.2 and rounded down to a
    whole number.  Then this value is divided into 8 balls as before.
    
    
    ---------------
    4.2 - Abilities
    ---------------
    
    Weapons can be augmented with several abilities.  Here's a list of the
    abilities and what they do:
    
    Wealth:   [30%] increase in Gilda dropped by monsters
    Poverty:  [30%] decrease in Gilda dropped by monsters
    Poison:   Poisons enemies (note that poison can reduce enemy HP to 1 but
              can't kill them).  The damage done by Poison is {HP / 20} every 5
              seconds, where HP is the enemy's max HP.
    Stop:     Chance of freezing enemy movement for a set time
    Steal:    Chance of stealing an item after an attack
    Critical: 15% chance of inflicting 1.8x damage
    Durable:  Slower WHP decrease
    Fragile:  Faster WHP decrease
    Absorb:   15% chance of recovering HP equal to 2% of the damage you do to the
              enemy
    Heal:     Restores 1 HP every 5 seconds
    Dark:     Inflicts 1.5x damage, but you lose 1% of your max HP each time
    ABS Up:   [20%] increase in ABS dropped by monsters
    
    Some abilities are opposites of each other, so only one of them can be present
    on a weapon.  The following are opposites:
    
    Wealth/Poverty
    Critical/Dark
    Durable/Fragile
    Absorb/Heal
    
    Abilities are placed on weapons in three ways.  Some weapons have abilities
    naturally.  For example, the Thorn Armlet has ABS Up and Poverty.  So if you
    build-up to a Thorn Armlet (or buy a Thorn Armlet) you'll get these two
    abilities.
    
    The second way is to synth a coin onto a weapon.  Here's a list of the coins
    and what abilities they carry:
    
    Wealth Coin:          Wealth
    Indestructible Coin:  Durable
    Poison Coin:          Poison
    Time Coin:            Stop
    Bandit Coin:          Steal
    Absorption Coin:      Absorb
    Healing Coin:         Heal
    Bull's-Eye Coin:      Critical
    Experience Coin:      ABS Up
    Dark Coin:            Dark
    
    There are no coins that carry Poverty or Fragile, though you wouldn't want to
    but them on your weapon anyway.
    
    Finally, you can transfer the abilities of one weapon to another by
    spectrumizing a weapon and synthing it to another weapon.  The abilities will
    only transfer if the weapon you spectrumize is +5 or higher.
    
    Abilities can be removed by placing the opposite ability on the weapon.  Since
    the Thorn Armlet has the undesirable Poverty ability, you can get rid of it
    by synthing a Wealth Coin to it, or by synthing a weapon which had Wealth to
    it.  This makes the two abilities cancel each other, so if you wanted Wealth
    to be on the Thorn Armlet, you would have to add the Wealth ability twice.
    This same process also works when building-up.  For example, building-up the
    Thorn Armlet to Pocklekul (which has Wealth naturally) will result in a
    Pocklekul with the ABS Up ability (but no Wealth or Poverty).  There is no way
    to remove abilities which don't have opposites (Poison, Stop, Steal, ABS Up).
    
    Eight is the most abilities you can have on a weapon, since if you tried to add
    more, you would be adding the opposite of something.
    
    Coins can be found in chests in each dungeon, won from fishing races/contests,
    won as Spheda prizes, or purchased from Morton's Sundries in Chapter 8.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    4.3 - Spectrumizing and Synthing
    --------------------------------
    
    Spectrumizing is the process of turning an item or weapon into a synth sphere.
    Most items can be spectrumized, and most give a boost to one or more stats.
    Synthing is the process of adding a synth sphere on a weapon in order to boost
    the stats of that weapon.  Synthing uses up SP.  Items take 1 SP each.  Weapons
    take 1 SP for each level the weapon had before spectrumization.  Note that
    spectrumizing a weapon that is not +5 or higher is useless, since the resulting
    synth sphere will be unstable, and will barely increase the stats, if at all.
    
    When a weapon is spectrumized, it will only retain a percentage of its stat
    points.  All stats except At (discussed below) and WHP (none of it is
    transferred) retain [60%] of their value when spectrumized.  For example, if a
    weapon has 18 Fl, the spectrumized weapon will have
    [60% * 18] = [10.8] = 10 Fl, and this is how much will be transferred to the
    weapon you're synthing to.
    
    At is a bit more complicated.  We have the following variables:
    
    At1: At value of our main weapon (the one we are synthing to)
    At2: At value of our auxilliary weapon (the one we are spectrumizing)
    
    Case 1: At1 >= At2
    
    At1 = At1 + floor(0.25 * At2)
    
    Case 2: At1 < At2
    
    At1 = At1 + floor(0.25 * At2 + 0.75 * (At2 - At1))
    
    Case 1 is what you will probably see most of the time.  If the At of the aux
    weapon is less than the At of your main weapon, then only 25% of the aux
    weapon's At will transfer.
    
    However, if the At of the aux weapon is greater than the At of your main
    weapon, then Case 2 will activate, and you will actually receive a larger
    percentage of the At of the aux weapon.  The percentage depends on the relative
    At values.  If your main weapon's At is 2/3 of the aux weapon's At, you'll get
    50%.  If your main weapon's At is 1/3 of the aux weapon's At, you'll get 75%.
    If your main weapon's At were 0 (if that were possible), you'd actually get
    100% of the aux weapon's At.
    
    SP is increased by leveling up a weapon.  Low-level weapons such as Battle
    Wrenches increase by 3 SP per level.  Mid-level weapons increase by 4 SP per
    level.  High-level weapons increase by 6 SP per level.  Note that by low, mid,
    and high, I'm refering to the weapon forms.  Section 4.6 describes a way to
    give a slight bonus to the SP increase.
    
    The maximum SP that can be accumulated on a weapon is 999.

    4.4 - Spectrumize Tables
    ------------------------
    
    I recommend using Knight Boots for At, since they raise it 2 points like Power
    Crystals do, but they are cheaper to make than buying Power Crystals.

    4.5 - Building Up
    -----------------
    
    Most weapons can be evolved into better weapons.  This is called building up,
    though in this guide I'll probably use the term upgrading more often.  Weapons
    should be upgraded because each weapon has caps on its stats.  Higher weapons
    have higher caps, and so are potentially more powerful.
    
    Usually you can perform an upgrade once the weapons stats are high enough:
    
    A: current stat of weapon you are upgrading from
    B: base stat of weapon you are upgrading to
    X = [10% * B]
    Y = B - X
    
    If A >= Y, for every stat, you can upgrade the weapon.  Once you do, X points
    will be added to the stats of the upgraded weapon.
    
    Example: The base stats for Drill Wrench are 16 At, 2 Fl, 10 Sm, 5 Be (0 in
    rest).  The minimum stats needed on a Battle Wrench in order to upgrade to
    Drill Wrench are 15 At, 2 Fl, 9 Sm, and 5 Be.  Assume you have a Battle Wrench
    with 20 At, 19 Fl, 19 Sm, 19 Be.  After upgrading to Drill Wrench, the stats
    will be 21 At, 19 Fl, 20 Sm, 19 Be.
    
    Purchased or found weapons will always have base stats.
    
    Some weapons (the most powerful ones) also require that you've killed at least
    one of a specific type of monster.  These monsters are found in later dungeons
    in the game, so that prevents you from upgrading your weapons beyond a certain
    point until then.

    4.6 - Support Characters
    ------------------------
    
    I've listed only the support characters which have something to do with
    weapons.  No recruitment information here, see OTACON120's Character
    Recruitment FAQ if you need help with that.
    
    =-=-=-=
     Adel
    =-=-=-=
    -Gradually raises WHP of unequipped weapons
    
    Not too useful, since Repair Powder is so readily available, and weapons don't
    disappear when they break.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
     Cedric
    =-=-=-=-=
    -Gives +1 extra SP per level for wrenches/hammers
    -Gives +1 per level to a random stat for wrenches/hammers
    -Repairs weapons
    
    His description in the game is a little misleading.  Cedric does not give
    bonuses for all weapons, only wrenches/hammers.  Always have Cedric with you
    when you level one of Max's right hand weapons.
    
    =-=-=-=
     Donny
    =-=-=-=
    -Sells Repair Powder and Gun Repair Powder
    
    You probably won't ever need to buy any powder from him, since you can find it
    under nearly every rock.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
     Gerald
    =-=-=-=-=
    -Gives +1 extra SP per level for guns
    -Gives +1 per level to a random stat for guns
    -Sells guns and spheda clubs
    
    Always have Gerald with you when you level one of Max's left hand weapons.

     Julia
    =-=-=-=
    -Sells armbands
    
    You can buy Pocklekuls from her starting on Chapter 5.  These are useful
    because they come with Wealth.
    
    =-=-=
     Lin
    =-=-=
    -Gives +1 extra SP per level for armbands
    -Gives +1 per level to a random stat for armbands
    
    Lin is the only way to get SP bonuses for Monica's magic.  This is kind of
    annoying since you only have Lin for part of Chapter 3.  And while you have her
    you can't switch to anyone else.  Making the best use of your time with Lin
    requires a bit of planning.  I plan to add more about this in a future version.
    
    =-=-=-=-=
     Milane
    =-=-=-=-=
    -Gives +1 extra SP per level for swords
    -Gives +1 per level to a random stat for swords
    -Sells weapons
    
    Keep Milane with you when leveling up swords.  She will start selling Thorn
    Armlets in Chapter 4, which have ABS Up.
    
    =-=-=-=
     Need
    =-=-=-=
    -Enemies drop [30%] more Gilda when defeated
    
    Gilda bonuses from Need are cumulative with Wealth, so using both will get you
    [60%] more money.
    
    =-=-=-=
     Rufio
    =-=-=-=
    -Sells elements and a few crystals
    
    He doesn't sell every type of crystal, but if you don't need the other types
    he saves you a trip to the Star Temple.
    
    
    -------------------------
    4.7 - Efficient Upgrading
    -------------------------
    
    Here are a few quick tips:
    
    -You can kill an enemy with anything and switch to something else to pick up
     the ABS
    
    -If you kill with Monica/Monster/Ridepod and switch to Max, the ABS is
     distributed evenly between his right and left hand weapons
    
    -vice versa for Monica
    
    -ABS Up is applied at the time you actually kill an enemy (same for Gilda 
     bonuses)
    
    -If you kill an enemy using a weapon with ABS Up, then switch to a new weapon
     and pick up the ABS, you'll still get the 20% bonus
    
    -Synthing weapons to raise stats on your main weapons is a better way to go
     than using crystals on your main weapons directly, because of the steep
     increase in ABS requirements for high-level weapons
    
    General
    
    Unless you only need a few stat points, it's usually better to synth weapons
    on to your main weapon instead of crystals.  In the beginning, the best way is
    to buy Battle Wrenches and upgrade them to True Battle Wrenches, and
    spectrumize those.  Later, it's better to buy/invent strong weapons and
    spectrumize those at +5.
    
    Wrenches
    
    I prefer the wrench path through the end of Chapter 7, but it really comes down
    to personal preference.  The raw strength of hammers comes in handy for Chapter
    8.
    
    Guns
    
    I'd stick with the Grenade Launcher until you win the Jurak Gun on Chapter 2.  
    The Jurak Gun eventually becomes the Supernova, the best gun IMO.  Keep in mind
    that you can only get one Jurak Gun.  However, making a Supernova starting from
    Classic Gun is much more ABS efficient, and the recipe below reflects this.
    
    Swords
    
    The evil sword path (Bone Rapier -> Evilcise -> Drain Seeker -> Sargatanas ->
    Dark Excalibur -> Griffon Fork) works very well, and optionally you can take it
    one step further to Island King.
    
    Armbands
    
    I suggest this path:
    
    Magic Brassard -> Bandit Brassard -> Thorn Armlet -> Pocklekul -> Moon Armlet
    -> Star Armlet -> Five-Star Armlet
    
    
    ===================
    5.0 - WEAPON TABLES
    ===================
    
    In the general tables, there is a field for the abilities.  This includes
    abilities which are added to the weapon when building up to it.
    
    In the base stat tables, there is a field called Enemies.  Some weapons
    require that you kill certain enemies before you can build up to that weapon.
    The enemies can be killed in any way, and only one of each type needs to be
    killed in order to allow any weapon with that requirement to be built up.  Only
    the Rifle Wolf is found on Chapter 5.  Check Valken Lee's chart for the tier of
    the weapon.  Later I'll provide specific locations for the enemies.
    
    The following enemies unlock Tier 7 weapons and are found in the Star Paths on

    ----------
    
    There are four types of guns:
    
    N - Normal
    M - Machine Gun
    G - Grenade
    B - Beam
    
    For the purposes of enemy strengths/weaknesses, M and N are the same type.  M
    is just a rapid-fire N.

     5.4 - Swords
    --------------
    
    There are two versions of the 5-hit combo for swords.  One is much faster than
    the other.  If the sword has the fast version, I've denoted the combo entry as
    5F.

    * The Lamb's Sword's At value depends on the time of day (thanks to Lord Gaav
      for pointing this out).  Note that for the purposes of upgrading to higher
      swords, the actual At value is what matters.  So you can't just wait until
      nightfall and magically meet the attack requirements.

    5.6 - Ultimate Weapons
    ----------------------
    
    There are a few things to consider when choosing which ultimate weapons to
    build up to.
    
    Regardless of your choice, your weapons should have 8 abilities, and it's
    helpful to get these on your weapons as soon as possible.  Stop, Poison, Steal,
    and ABS Up have no opposites and have no drawbacks.  Durable and Wealth have
    harmful opposites.  The more difficult choices are between Dark and Critical,
    and between Heal and Absorb.  I prefer to have Dark and Absorb on most of my
    weapons.  Once your weapons can do more than about 700 damage, Absorb will more
    than make up for the HP you lose from Dark.  And over time, Dark will do a lot
    more damage than Critical because it activates every time.  It's good to have
    Heal on at least one weapon.  So if you get into trouble in a dungeon, you can
    just equip your Heal weapon and hide for a few minutes while you recharge.  The
    one exception where Critical is better than Dark is with machine guns.  Since
    the damage of machine guns is less per shot than other guns, you won't absorb
    as much HP when it activates, but Dark would take effect for every shot.  Using
    Dark on a machine gun will kill you very quickly.  So Critical is better for
    those weapons.
    
    Now let's discuss the choice of which weapons to evolve.
    
    For guns I think the Supernova is the obvious choice.  It's got higher stats
    than the Last Resort and Sigma Bazooka.  It fires faster than the Sigma
    Bazooka.  Machine guns are often ineffective against enemies with high defense
    (you'll know you're experiencing this when you see No Effect pop up over and
    over).  The Supernova doesn't suffer from this weakness since it's a beam gun.
    
    The Grade Zero and LEGEND are the best weapons in the wrench and hammer lines,
    respectively.  Personally I prefer the speed of the Grade Zero in Chapter 7,
    and the raw power of the LEGEND in Chapter 8.  It just takes too many hits to
    kill things in Zelmite Mine with the Grade Zero.
    
    The Five-Star Armlet is the best armlet, no question about it.  The stats are
    higher than the Love, in fact, the Five-Star has the highest stats of any
    weapon in the game.  And there are no combo or speed factors to worry about
    with the armlets.
    
    The toughest choice is generally the swords.  There are many of them, and they
    have a wide variety of stats and capabilities.  Here are the most powerful
    swords in each of the four combo types:
    
    4-hit:      Island King
    slow 5-hit: 7th Heaven
    fast 5-hit: Griffon Fork
    6-hit:      Dark Cloud
    
    Note that the 7th Heaven and Griffon Fork aren't actually ultimate forms, since
    they both evolve to the Island King.  But there's no law that says you have to.
    
    The Dark Cloud is interesting because it's the only weapon in the game that can
    reach 300 in all elemental stats.  It's also my personal favorite in terms of
    appearance.
    
    I prefer the speed of the Griffon Fork during Chapter 7.  For Chapter 8, I like
    to use the Dark Cloud in the earlier levels, and the Island King in the later
    levels.  A lot of people don't like the looks of the Island King, but I think
    the power of the sword is a more important factor.  It's rare that an enemy
    will survive three hits with this sword.  If it does, chances are it's strong
    against swords and you should be using your Supernova to kill it anyway.

    This section lists weapons that have been found in dungeons.  Feel free to
    email me if you've seen others.  Previous versions of this guide listed coins
    found in each dungeon, but I've become convinced that all coins can be found in
    all dungeons.  Thanks to everyone who sent in coin locations.

    You get this after completing 100% of the georama in Sindain.  I know of no
    other way to get this weapon.

    You get this after completing 100% of the georama in Balance Valley.  You can
    build up to this weapon normally so it's not one of a kind.  I usually use it
    to make a 7 Branch Sword, since that's the most powerful weapon you can get
    before Chapter 7.

    You get this after completing 100% of the georama in Heim Rada.  I know of no
    other way to get this weapon.  This sword builds up to the Sun Sword (I know of
    no other way to get a Sun Sword), and the Sun Sword builds up to the Big Bang
    (I know of no other way to get a Big Bang).

    7.0 - WEAPON RECIPES
    ====================
    
    For now, the recipes in this section are meant for people on their first games.
    Better recipes are possible for replays by effective use of the photo album,
    and I'll include some of those recipes later.  These recipes assume no access
    to coins, since acquiring them is usually either random or means lots of
    fishing.  Instead, weapons with natural abilities are used to give your main
    weapon abilities.  If you find a coin earlier than you can make one of these
    weapons, feel free to use it, but you'll have to adjust the recipes yourself.
    The recipes also ignore the effects of random elemental stat increases granted
    by bonus characters upon level-up.  It was simply easier for me to analyze that
    way.  Depending on how lucky you are with which stats go up, you could take a
    few shortcuts in the recipes.  But again, you're on your own with that.
    
    The big recipes have a summary list of the steps, then detailed descriptions
    follow.  Each step has an entry for the ABS and Gilda needed to do the step, as
    well as the earliest chapter you can complete the step.
    
    Note: Recipes 7.2 - 7.5 can be done as a set.  If you just do each floor once,
    plus a few repeats for Spheda prizes, you can max a Grade Zero, Supernova,
    Griffon Fork, and Five-Star Armlet, plus buy all cores for the Ridepod, plus get
    enough monster EXP to reach the first evolution, all by the end of Chapter 7.
    
    LEGEND can be subsituted for Grade Zero using recipe 7.6, the trade-off being an
    additional 26,000 ABS required.

    7.7 - Island King
    -----------------
    
    Note: this is an old recipe and not very efficient.
    
    Goal: Island King with maxed stats and these abilities:
    
    Poison
    Stop
    ABS Up
    Steal
    Wealth
    Dark
    Durable
    Absorb
    
    The progression for Island King is like so:
    
    Bone Rapier
    Evilcise
    Drain Seeker
    Sargatanas
    Dark Excalibur
    Griffon Fork
    Island King
    
    There are several paths to the Island King, so it's tough to decide which one
    to do.  The line I chose is often referred to as the "evil" sword path.  Some
    advantages of this line are:
    
    -We pick up Poison, Absorb, and Dark naturally
    -There aren't any slow 4-hit swords until the Island King
    -If you change your mind and decide you don't want an Island King, Griffon Fork
     is a great alternative, since it's the best sword that has a fast 5-hit combo
    -After Bone Rapier, they all look cool, IMO
    
    The main disadvantage is that there are only seven swords in the progression,
    while other progressions have eight.  So the ABS requirements will be slightly
    higher (though the free abilities probably make up for it).

     1. Recruit Milane
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    After you finish Legendary Killer Snake, you can start recruiting, including
    Milane.  I suggest upgrading the Gladius she gives you to the Chopper after the
    Cliff Knife.  It's the fastest way.  Once you've recruited her, you can access
    the weapon shop in Jurak Mall, and buy a Bone Rapier (it's cheaper than
    inventing it).

    7.8 - Dark Cloud
    ----------------
    
    Goal: Dark Cloud with maxed stats and these abilities:
    
    Poison
    Stop
    ABS Up
    Steal
    Wealth
    Dark
    Durable
    Absorb
    
    The progression for Dark Cloud is like so:
    
    Baselard
    Broad Sword
    Kitchen Knife
    Serpent Slicer
    Tsukikage
    Ama no Murakumo
    Dark Cloud
    
    This recipe is different from the others, in that it's designed to be as fast
    as possible.  I assume that you are on Chapter 8 before starting this recipe,
    and that you have some strong weapons already.  The Dark Cloud is a nice sword
    to have.  It's cool looking, it has a 6-hit combo, and it's the only weapon in
    the game that can reach 300 in all elemental stats.  This recipe doesn't
    include synth weapons that give abilities, since it's pretty easy to get coins
    by going through the Hell's Turning Point level of Chapter 8 (the chests there
    have nothing but coins).  I suggest using Milane when leveling up the main
    sword, but use Need when leveling synth weapons.  The extra SP's are far
    outweighed by the extra money you'll get with Need.  Be sure to kill everything
    with weapons that have Wealth and ABS Up.  If you do things this way, you only
    need to go through Seeping Light three times in order to get all the ABS and
    gilda you need for the recipe.  The third time through, you should be using the
    Ridepod to collect the ABS, so that you can get Super-Alloy Bodies and sell
    them.  If you are reasonably lucky, you should be able to get all the coins you
    need after just a couple trips through Hell's Turning Point.  So the whole
    recipe should take you between 30-45 minutes.  One final note: there are a few
    synth weapons whose SP are not all used up in the recipe.  This is where you
    need to stick your coins, because there aren't enough extra SP on the main
    sword.

    =======================
    8.0 - WEAPON COLLECTING
    =======================
    
    Several people sent me email asking for ultimate weapon recipes that will max
    WHP to 255, as well as maxing the other stats.  Here's the basic method for
    designing such recipes:
    
    1. Choose the weapon you want to max.
    
    2. Using a weapon upgrade chart (such as Valken's), find base weapons that lead
       to your goal weapon.
    
    3. Choose the base weapon that is the most steps away from the goal weapon.
    
    4. Figure out how many total levels must be gained to max WHP:
    
       (255 - base weapon's WHP) / avg. WHP increase
    
       Flyojumper calculated the avg. WHP increase to be about 1.66.  For these
       recipes, I've used the slightly more conservative value of 1.5.
    
    5. Distribute these levels among all the weapons leading to the goal weapon,
       such that the total ABS needed is minimized.
    
    One can use an algorithm to solve step 5.  I wrote a program to generate the
    progressions for me, so I figured I might as well generate progressions for
    every weapon, not just ultimate weapons.
    
    For each goal weapon, I've listed the total ABS needed, the total SP that will
    be present on the goal weapon, and the progression of level ups.  Some weapons
    will have more than one possible progression, especially swords and armbands,
    since there are so many upgrade paths.  In many cases, you could then max the
    stats of the weapon by simply synthing georama materials or crystals directly
    to the weapon, rather than synthing other weapons, because the accumulated SP
    is enormous.  But it won't be enough for the ultimate weapons and a few others.
    I leave it to you to figure out how to max the other stats.  It's very easy,
    you have plenty of SP, so just use the techniques described elsewhere in this
    guide.  Get coins from Hell's Turning Point to add abilities.
    
    This information in this section can be used in two ways.  One is to make
    "perfect" ultimate weapons of your choice.  The other is to amass a complete
    collection of perfect weapons.  All 109 of them.  Of course this is just for
    obsessive completionists.  I recommend waiting until Seeping Light (chapter 8)
    to start working on this.  All those weapons will take up a lot of inventory
    space, but you can get rid of a lot of stuff after chapter 7 since you don't
    need to build any georama.
    
    One more thing.  If you want to have every weapon, you'll need three
    Name-Change Tickets.  You normally only get one Holy Daedalus Blade.  You can
    only make the Sun Sword from a Holy Daedalus Blade, and you can only make the
    Big Bang from the Sun Sword.  So you need to use two Name-Change Tickets to
    make two extra Holy Daedalus Blades.  You need to use the third one to make the
    Royal Sword.

    9.0 - FAQ
    =========
    
    a. I need to kill a monster to upgrade my weapon.  Where do I find this
       monster?
    
     With the exception of Rifle Wolf, which is found on chapter 5, these monsters
     are found in chapters 6 and 7.  See my walkthrough for exact floor locations.
    
    
    b. I have these weapons and I'm on this chapter.  Am I doing good?
    
     If you are able to get through each dungeon floor without dying, then yes you
     are doing good.  Don't assume that someone is doing better simply because they
     have more powerful weapons on an earlier chapter.  Usually that just means
     they've wasted a lot of time building up their weapons the hard way.  Sort of
     like getting to level 100 on Destiny Islands in Kingdom Hearts.
    
    
    c. What's the best way to upgrade my weapons?
    
     The weapon system in this game is very complex; I've spent a lot of time
     studying it.  There's no easy answer because there are just too many factors.
     Here are some basic tips:
    
     -A weapon must be +5 or higher before synthing it to another weapon.
     -Synthing weapons to weapons is better than synthing crystals/georama
      materials to weapons directly.
     -Synth crystals/georama materials to the other weapons to build up their
      stats before synthing to your main weapon.
     -Synth crystals if you have extra, but never buy them.  If you run out of
      crystals, buy georama materials.
     -Don't neglect guns/armlets.  They start out weak, but eventually become very
      powerful.
    
     You should read the rest of this guide if you want to understand more.
    
    
    d. What are the best weapons in the game?
    
     Max's right-hand: LEGEND for power, Grade Zero for speed
     Max's left-hand: Supernova
     Monica's right-hand: Island King for power, Griffon Fork for speed, Dark Cloud
                          for nice balance of speed and power
     Monica's left-hand: Five-Star Armlet
    
    
    e. When's the earliest I can get these weapons?
    
     Chapter 7, unless you use a Name-Change Ticket.
    
    
    f. What's the best weapon I can get before chapter 7?
    
     7 Branch Sword, unless you use a Name-Change Ticket.  You can get the 7 Branch
     on chapter 2 if you spend a lot of time on it.
    
    
    g. What's this about Name-Change Tickets?
    
     You can purchase items from Need by giving him medals that you collect.  Most
     of these items are clothes (and therefore useless except for aesthetics).  He
     also sells Name-Change Tickets.  If you use one of these on a weapon, you can
     change the weapon name to whatever you like.  If you change it to the name of
     one of the game's weapons, it will transform into that weapon, and the stats
     will change to the minimal stats of that weapon.  For example, changing the
     name of a Classic Gun to Supernova will give you a Supernova with the minimum
     stats of a Supernova.  This is the only way to get anything better than a
     7 Branch Sword before chapter 7.
    
    
    h. What's better, Critical + Heal or Dark + Absorb?
    
     Once your weapon does a certain amount of damage (say 800), Dark + Absorb is
     far superior.  You will do much more damage on average with Dark than with
     Critical, and Absorb will keep you healed up since your damage is high.  The
     only weapons that shouldn't have Dark are machine guns.
    
    
    i. How do I get rid of these negative abilities on my weapon?
    
     Synth a weapon with the opposite ability to your main weapon, or synth a coin
     with the opposite ability to your weapon.  See the help menu in the game for a
     table of abilities and their opposites.
