Just as the title says, name the BEST weapon(s)! But first:
Before you start naming any S rank GBA weapons, here’s a few rules:
(Edit: I haven’t played all Fe games though!)
- No Legendary Weapons:
- No Prf Weapons:
- No Unused Weapons:
- No Monster Weapons:
With that outta the way, here’s my opinions on the matter!
What a solid weapon we have here! Outstanding amount of uses, fantastic might, solid hitrate, and tolerable weight! Once more, it’s a great tool for capturing enemy units, in a part of the game where that matters more then ever!(The Manster Acr) Very good indeed!
FE6 (My Fav FE)
Now this is a solid weapon! Of course, being a killer weapon helps a lot as we all know, but in Binding Blade specifically, you get you’re first one from Rutger in chapter 4, and another one in chapter 7. It’s a great weapon! So much so, IS decided to nerf it in FE7!
Honestly, this one is kind of a no-brainer. It’s got solid hitrate for one, fantastic price for what it is, and it’s 1-2 range. and due to the amount of 1-2 ranged enemies their are in FE7, look no further to a better answer to you’re problem then the Hand Axe!
Sacred Stones was a bit of a hard one to decide for me, but I landed on the Fire Tome as being the best weapon. You get one early on in the game, it’s the lightest of the tomes, it’s might is solid if you’re using Lute or Saleh, since they have fantastic bases and even growths in Lutes case. And it’s gonna be the only tome Ewan’s going to use for a fair bit! Great weapon!
An unexpected one I decided if I’mma be honest! pretty good availability (Chapter 5), solid amount of uses, fairly cheap, and great units to use it! Their’s a lot of Myrmidons and Swordmasters in this game, and they’ll make great use of it!
Maybe not the first weapon to come to everyone’s minds, but I like it, so it’s here! A 1-2 range option our sword-locked units have been begging at their knees for a while, and I think IS did it in the best way possible! Good price, good availability, low weight, good all around in my opinion!
Finally, a Steel Lance that doesn’t weigh you down into oblivion. On my playthroughs of FE11, I found myself using the Steel weapons the most, especially the Steel Axe and Lance, though I had to choose the Lance Above the Axe just because of how much lance users are given to the player, and that also make good use of it! It’s very well balanced in it’s stats in every area! I like this choice personally!
So, thats pretty much my opinion.
Now, I’m doing this for research purposes. And for general interest! So lemme know what y’all think yourselves! And if I have any good points on my takes! I’m really trying to understand weapon balancing for myself. I’d really like to know!
