Character Page

Party screen

Each weapon, of R rarity or higher, has one or two weapon skills that will improve the party performance in some way. These skills will only affect party member that match the weapons elements. The picture shows the Soul, Gawain, with 9 weapon skills active, as do the other Wind characters in the party. The Fire element Kamihime, Ares only has 1 active skill however, as there is 1 Fire, and 9 Wind weapons equipped.

Types Edit

There are two types of weapon skill: basic and composite. Composite skills are essentially 2 basic skills merged together, allowing a weapon to have three weapon skills.

Basic Weapon Skills:

  • Ascension - Increases the healing power of party members.
  • Assault - boosts ATK of party members.
  • Barrage - increases the chance of performing a Triple Attack.
  • Carnage - same as Assault but with better base and growth.
  • Custom - exclusive to Soul Weapons. Increases HP of party members.
  • Defender - boosts HP of party members.
  • Elaborate - Increases damage dealt by abilities
  • Exceed - Increases the burst damage of party members.
  • Pride - increases ATK based on HP lost
  • Rush - increases the chance of performing a Double Attack.
  • Stinger - Increases Crit rate of party members with element advantage
  • Upgrade - used as fodder to upgrade skill levels of other weapons.
  • Vigor - exclusive to Soul Weapons. Increases elemental attack.
  • Vigoras - Reverse of pride effect. Increases ATK based on character's left HP ratio.

Composite Weapon Skills

  • Avalanche - Barrage + Rush
  • Grace - Defender + Ascension
  • Rampart - Defender + Vigoras
  • Resilience - Assault + Ascension
  • Slug - Assault + Stinger
  • Strength - Assault + Defender
  • Tactics - Exceed + Elaborate
  • Tri-edge - Assault + Barrage
  • Tri-guard - Defender + Barrage
  • Twin-edge - Assault + Rush

Levelling Weapon Skills Edit

Weapon skill level can be increased by Enhancing them with any non-Enhance-Material Weapon of R rarity or above. The higher the Weapon Skill level and the rarity of the weapon used as fodder, the greater the chances will be of increasing the Weapon Skill of the weapon used as base.

One easy way to know how many weapons are needed to increase a weapon skill is to look at their current level. An SR weapon will need the same amount of R weapons as its current skill level. For instance, an SR weapon with Skill Level 15, will need 15 R weapon. SSR weapons will need twice as much and R weapon half as much.

Skill Level 1 Skill Level 2 Skill Level 3 Skill Level 4 Skill Level 5
R weapon 10 exp 20 exp 30 exp - -
SR weapon 35 exp 70 exp 105 exp 140 exp -
SSR weapon 350 exp 450 exp 550 exp 650 exp 750 exp
R Grail 20 exp 40 exp 60 exp - -
SR Grail 50 exp 100 exp 150 exp 200 exp 250 exp
SSR Grail 1500 exp - - - -

Unlike the Eidolon system equivalent, the existence of Weapon Skills makes non-Enhance-Material Weapons have an important role in the Weapon Skill upgrading of the intended base weapon. This system ignores Weapon Type, though since the EXP Upgrade system factors in Weapon Type, it may still be preferable to use weapons of similar Type to do both upgrades simultaneously.

Weapon skills are commutative each other, so it's possible to have multiple ATK↑ weapons equipped and all the bonuses will be applied (so long as the element matches). The stats on the character page do not show the increase due to weapon skills, however they will take effect in battle.

Basic Edit

Assault Edit

Vigoras Edit

Vigoras improves damage the closer to full health you currently are. It will increase the attack of party members based on the ratio of current HP and max HP. In other words, the closer a character's current HP is to her maximum health, the bigger will be the effect.

Vigoras is on it's own special frame, and does not have a base assault value like Pride. It acts as a separate modifier for damage, multiplying with your existing char attack/elemental attack damage formula. Also unlike pride, it does not have an effect for the entirety of the health bar, the effect is reduced to 0 at 50% of max HP.

$ (Base ~ Increase + SL \times 0,2)^{(HP / Max ~ HP)} - (Base ~ Increase + SL \times 0,2)^{0,5} $

Base increase:

  • Small (+): 8
  • Medium (++): 12
  • Large (+++): 16

Note: Base Increases are not the base % increase for your damage. They are the base number for the above formula to calculate it.
