Weapons

Weapons are the equipment heroes carry in their primary and/or secondary equipment slots. They serve as the primary method for dealing damage to enemies.

General Information

All weapons are either one-handed or two-handed. One-handed weapon types include: crossbows, daggers, dueling swords, swords, axes, maces, and wands. Two-handed weapon types include: bows, greataxes, greatspears, greatswords, hammers, and staves. If a hero loses arm(s) or undergoes some transformation, some of these weapons may not be equipped.

Like all equipment, weapons cannot be transferred or traded among heroes after being assigned.

Generally, a hero can only hold/equip one weapon at a time, but an extra weapon can be stored on the back. Switching weapons in combat is an unlimited free action.

Weapon Qualities

Weapons can be basic quality (i.e. the randomly generated weapons that you come across during your play), elemental quality (a stunt effect is added to the weapon), or artifact quality (named weapons that have set descriptions and stats/abilities). All weapons, regardless of quality, additionally come in tiers representing their general power, usually spanning from Tier 1 (the weakest) to Tier 3 (the full capability of the weapon). An additional bottom tier, Tier 0, is present for certain categories of generic weapons. Weapons of all qualities can be upgraded to higher tiers through the crafting system.

Basic Weapons

Basic weapons are the most widely available. They are often obtained through random loot, but they can also be crafted with the correct resources or using legacy points. Basic weapons typically come with a randomly generated name, but do not offer any additional bonuses beyond what might be normal for a weapon of their type.

Tier 0 weapons are the basic weapons that heroes normally start the game with. Unless otherwise specified, all Tier 0 weapons have a range of 1.6 and stunt damage of 1.

Elemental Weapons

Every once in a while your party might encounter an elemental spirit during a mission (see Spirit Captured for more information). If you catch it, it can enchant one of the currently wielded weapons of the hero who catches it, or give you a legacy point. The process of enchanting your currently wielded weapon effectively destroys your old weapon and replaces it with an elemental quality weapon of the same type and tier.

Each element gives a different bonus when a hero stunts. The element granted is dependent upon the element of the spirit encountered.

Fire Damages up to three nearby enemies.
Water Refunds one action point. (Can only occur once per turn)
Leaf Grants two temporary hit points. (This effect can stack)
Stone Shreds 1 Armour of all enemies in a two tile radius.

Obtaining an enchantment for a specific weapon type unlocks that option in your legacy when you win a game. Thereafter, you will be able to craft that enchanted weapon type in future games without having to capture another spirit. It is only necessary for a spirit to have created a weapon of that type for you, not for you to have ever used it or even taken it in your possession. This means, for example, that you can tell a fire spirit to enchant your dagger, have it make a fire dagger for you, and then salvage it immediately -- and once you win the campaign it will nevertheless be unlocked in your legacy.

Artifact Weapons

Artifact weapons are most notable for their unique bonuses, visual appearances, and the fact that they carry over with a legacy hero into their next story or campaign (rather than being lost as most equipment is). Many are obtained through random drops, but some are available through specific events or moments in the main campaigns. They are never available to be crafted, but an already obtained artifact quality weapon can have its tier improved using the crafting system.
