Each weapon in the game will have its own separate Weapon Abilities. Your proficiency with these abilities will increase the more you use the weapon! Additionally, when you reach a 100% proficiency, you'll be able to activate a new bonus effect with the weapon.
Example: The Buster Sword's Abilities
