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.

Charge Attack

  • Detonation Time: ~5 seconds
  • Radius: ~4.5 tiles

Movement speed is not significantly hindered while charging up. Detonation produces a damaging core explosion with a small ~1.5 tile radius that immediately explodes outward into a larger ring of 8 shards with radius ~4.5 tiles. The central explosion causes minor knockback, usually just enough to push enemies into the second ring. Each shard in the ring explodes ~3 seconds after the central explosion and deal slightly more damage than the central explosion. Both the central explosion and shards in the outer ring have a chance to cause shock. Enemies dealt enough damage will be knocked down by both primary and secondary explosions.


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

While the base damage for shard bombs are low, they increase substantially more with damage bonuses than other weapons do. See this DPS chart for details.
