Explanation Of Weapon Variable

Each Weapon Has Different Base Damage

In TOTK, there are variables that affect the base damage of each weapon, and depending on the weapon the displayed attack and damage dealt are different. So keep in mind weapons type such as spear has lower base attack than displayed attack.

後1回攻撃で壊れる状態の解説Tips!!Having said that, the spear is still the best weapon type in this series considering Link's motion for each weapon.
Claymore's charged attack and ride attack is very effective in some situations, so try using weapon suited for each situation.
