Relic Weapon Traits
Weapon Stats Are Fixed
The stats for each Relic Weapon you receive is fixed, and are not randomized. If you pick up weapons of the same name, there will be no difference.
There Are Multiple Unique Weapons Per Weapon Class
There are multiple unique Relic Weapons you can get that belong in each weapon class. For example, you may find a Kjarr Sword "Spark" long sword, and later on be able to find another long sword called Kjarr Sword "Fire". Collect as many as you can.
Higher Rarity Relic Weapons Are Comparable Or Better
Some Relic Weapons are comparable or even better than existing weapons you can craft at the Smithy. However, obtaining a specific weapon is by chance, so try to complete the quest as much as you can while it's available.
May Require "Free Elem / Ammo Up" Skill
Some Relic Weapons have a hidden element that you can utilize if you have the "Free Elem / Ammo Up" skill.
Sample Comparison Of Relic Weapons & Existing Weapons
|Stat|| Taroth Assault "Magma" |
| Magma Gemitus II |
In this example, the forged version of the weapon though slightly higher in attack power, has a lower affinity and lower defense bonus than the relic version of the weapon. They also use different kinds of special ammo.
