Damage type(s) and Attack Speed influence combat. The attack style of the weapon in relation to the combat environment is also important. Consider both when choosing weapons to wield.


Boosts and Penalties are both considered "abilities" in general. Many items don't have any special abilities. See the Abilities page for details. Some enemies are immune to certain status conditions - see individual status pages for details.

Basic Attack

Bombs do not have basic attacks, only charge attacks.

Charge Attack

  • Detonation Time: ~2 seconds
  • Radius: ~2 tiles

Detonation produces a damaging explosion which deals normal damage and has a good chance to inflict strong freeze on enemies that are in the bomb's range.


The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and are listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.
