Bolt of Gransax Details

Use Skill From A Distance

This build utilizes Ancient Lightning Spear, a skill that hurls a single poweful projectile to the enemy from a distance. This is great for players who are not good with melee combat.

Poweful Charged Skill

Ancient Lightning Spear can be enhanced even further when charged. The attack power increases for about 1.375x compared to usual. In addition, the effects of Godfrey Icon can further increase its attack power making it a deadly skill against any enemy from far.

Increase Damage With Talisman & Crystal Tear

Ancient Lightning Spear has a lightning attribute which can be enhanced even further by using various talismans & crystal tears. When the items mentioned below are used, the damage output would significantly increase.

Talisman & Crystal Tear Multiplier

Talisman Lightning Scorpion Charm: 1.2x
Shard of Alexander: 1.15x
Ritual Sword Talisman: 1.1x
Godfrey Icon: 1.15x
Crystal Tear Lightning-Shrouding Cracked Tear: 1.2x

Recommended Class & Stats

^ Preferential | Optional | Unnecessary

Dexterity is the most important stat in this build as it affects the damage output of Bolt of Gransax. Although Warrior has the highest initial value for Dexterity, the initial value for Intelligence & Arcane is also high which is considered as a waste since this build does not need those stats. That is why the recommended class for this build is Samurai.

Stat Points Allocation

At Level 50

Stat Point Enhancement
Vigor 30 ・Raise to 30 to increase HP & durability
Mind 11 ・Initial value
Endurance 13 ・Initial value
Strength 12 ・Initial value
・You can use Guardian's Swordspear by two-hand wield
Dexterity 38 ・Raise to increase weapon attack power
Intelligence 9 ・Initial value
Faith 8 ・Initial value
Arcane 8 ・Initial value

At this point, it is difficult to obtain the Bolt of Gransax. Use the starting weapon, Uchigatana, for the meantime. But it is recommended to obtain the Guardian's Swordspear in the early game.

At Level 120

Stat Point Enhancement
Vigor 40 ・Raise to increase HP & durability
Mind 21 Ancient Lightning Spear can be used for 5 times
Endurance 21 ・Equipable Items At Med. Load:
Bolt of Gransax

Strength 20 ・You can use Bolt of Gransax by right-hand wield
Dexterity 70 ・Raise to increase weapon attack power and skill
Intelligence 9 ・Initial value
Faith 8 ・Initial value
Arcane 8 ・Initial value

Raise Mind & Strength once you obtain the Bolt of Gransax. In addition, raise Endurance so you will only have medium load even if you equip the Guardian's Swordspear and use it as right-hand armament 2.

Lightning Scorpion Charm Replacement

Although Lightning Scorpion Charm is great, it reduces physical damage negation and pairing it with Okina Mask + Land of Reeds armor set makes it less than 10. If there is a situation where you cannot spam Ancient Lightning Spear from a safe distance, it is recommended to use Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman instead to increase durability.

Recommended Crystal Tear

・Duration of 3 minutes

Does Not Work With Spiked Cracked Tear
