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

A 10-hit combo, consisting of 5 swings doing 2 hits apiece. Each swing has a chance of inflicting poison. All swings but the first one make the player thrust forward 1 block. After every hit executed by the player follows a shadow blade that strikes in the same fashion as the first strike.

Charge Attack

A series multiple of hits followed by a final slash with a forward lunge. This attack takes several seconds to complete, during which time it cannot be interrupted unless you are Shocked. Hence, it must be aimed and used with care.


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.

The basic attack has alternating high and low hits, the last hit of the basic combo does the charge-level damage. The charge attack alternates between the charge value and the low attack value.
