|Power, which is multiplied by the Weapon Class Mutliplier |
|and added to the total Attack Power.	   		   |
|							   |
|The follow are the Weapon Class Multipler:		   |

|Great Sword/Tachi 		- 4.8			   |
|Sword&Shield/Dual Swords	- 1.4			   |

|Lance/Gunlance			- 2.3			   |

|Example: The Hunter is using a GS with Attack Up [lg],    |
|so 4.8*10 = 48.0 ATP added, all decimals are dropped.	   |
|							   |
|The end result is that the total Attack Power will        |
|increase by 48.					   |
