Kingdom Hearts Guide - Sidequests

Equipment

Strong as Sora may be, he's not much of a match with his fists. That's where your equipment comes in.

Everything from Keychains to Staffs, Shields and even Accessories are listed here. We'll take a look at their states and what to equipped and when.

Before looking more into equipment, you must understand these three things:

- ATK is the stat listed under the weapons name on the right. That is the amount of damage guaranteed to be done with every hit, provided the enemy isn't invincible. STR is the amount that is added to your base STR. While attacking, your STR stat is subtracted by the enemies DEF stat then your ATK stat is added to it, resulting in ATK power. Basically:
Weapon STR Base STR – Enemy's DEF Modifiers ATK = Attack Power

This does NOT apply to magic.

- Magic power is increased by your MP gauge. The larger your MP gauge is, the more powerful your magic attacks will be, in addition to being able to cast them more often.

- Equipping 4 Accessories that reduce _ damage by 20% does NOT make you immune to that attack. Rather, 1 = 20%, 2 = 36%, 3 = 48%, 4 = 52%.

Weapons

Every weapon is relatively unique; though some are just outright better then others. Your partners weapons are pretty straight forward, with each one being overall better then the last, but Sora's Keyblades are more diverse and force you to choose between certain stats.


=========
Keychains
=========

No, Sora does not carry around multiple Keyblades with him. Rather, the Keyblade takes on a form befitting the Keychain attached to it
*glares at Naruto and Justaway Keychains in the corner*


Kingdom Key

Stats:
- ATK 3

Description:
The key chain attached draws out the Keyblade's true form and power.

Obtained:
Start

Breakdown:
You'll be using the Kingdom Key for what seems like forever. It's overall the most useless blade, as it is among the shortest and IS the weakest.


Jungle King

Stats:
- ATK 5
- STR 2

Description:
Has a long reach, but seldom deals critical blows.

Obtained:
Lock Deep Jungle keyhole.

Breakdown:
I use this blade for the majority of the game. I really don't care about critical blows, as there's really no measurable way to tell when one actually occurs. It's otherwise good stats and third-longest reach of all the Keychains makes this a valuable weapon.


Three Wishes

Stats:
- ATK 6
- STR 3

Description:
A powerful weapon that is difficult to deflect.

Obtained:
Lock Agrabah keyhole

Breakdown:
Difficult to deflect means that if you have the counterattack ability equipped, then the counterattack is almost always going to connect. Kind of useless as most enemies don't block your attacks and the ones that do wont normally do so twice in a row anyway. It's stats otherwise are not a big enough upgrade to give up my long reaching Jungle King.


Crabclaw

Stats:
- ATK 6
- STR 3
- MP 1

Description:
Raises max MP by 1, and enhances magic and summon power. Also deals good physical damage.

Obtained:
Lock Atlantica keyhole

Breakdown:
Not a bad weapon, it's reach is average and it has good power. If you have been using Three Wishes, this is a solid upgrade from it.


Pumpkinhead

Stats:
- ATK 7
- STR 4

Description:
Has a long reach and the ability to deal a string of critical blows.

Obtained:
Lock Halloween Town keyhole

Breakdown:
A solid upgrade from Jungle King. It's reach is only a hair less then it, and you have the ability to deal critical hits again if you feel lucky. Plus it looks cool :)


Fairy Harp

Stats:
- ATK 8
- STR 5
- MP 1

Description:
Raises max MP by 1, and enhances magic and summon power. Sometimes deals powerful critical blows.

Obtained:
Lock Neverland keyhole

Breakdown:
Just... don't. really, don't even think about it. It's stats are not enough of an upgrade to make up for being the shortest Keyblade.


Wishing Star

Stats:
- ATK 5
- STR 2

Description:
Has a short reach, but always finishes up a combo attack with a powerful critical blow.

Obtained:
After saving Geppetto, visit him in his house in First District Traverse Town.

Breakdown:
The only proper way to use this Keyblade is to unequipped all Combo Plus abilities. This will allow you to repeatedly critical an enemy. I still don't use this blade. Too weak and too short.


Spellbinder

Stats:
- ATK 4
- STR 1
- MP 2

Description:
Raises max MP by 2, and significantly enhances magic and summon power.

Obtained:
Talk to Merlin after acquiring all level 1 magic spells

Breakdown:
Only equip if you really like casting magic. In real combat this is pretty useless given it's low stats.


Metal Chocobo

Stats:
- ATK 10
- STR 7
- MP -1

Description:
Possess incredible power and reach, but reduces max MP by 1. Rarely deals critical blows.

Obtained:
Defeat Cloud in the Hercules Cup tournament (seed 4)

Breakdown:
Get this weapon as soon as possible! It has the second longest reach and the third highest ATK and STR. It is well worth losing criticals and 1 MP over.


Olympia

Stats:
- ATK 9
- STR 6

Description:
A powerful weapon that is difficult to deflect. Capable of inflicting mighty critical blows.

Obtained:
Win the Phil, Pegasus, and Hercules cups (with Donald and Goofy)

Breakdown:
Difficult to deflect means that if you have the counterattack ability equipped, then the counterattack is almost always going to connect. Kind of useless as most enemies don't block your attacks and the ones that do wont normally do so twice in a row anyway. Technically nothing wrong with this weapon. It is overall powerful and has a reach equal to that of the Kingdom Key. I just don't like it as much as my recently-obtained Metal Chocobo.


Lionheart

Stats:
- ATK 10
- STR 7
- MP 1

Description:
Raises max MP by 1, and enhances magic and summon power. Also deals great physical damage.

Obtained:
Defeat Leon and Cloud in the Hades Cup (seed 20)

Breakdown:
A good upgrade to the Metal Chocobo if you like casting magic (MP 2), but I just cant give up that range.


Lady Luck

Stats:
- ATK 8
- STR 5
- MP 2

Description:
Raises max MP by 2, and significantly enhances magic and summon power. Also inflicts good physical damage.

Obtained:
White Trinity #2 (Wonderland)

Breakdown:
By the point in the game where you actually get around to tracking down this blade, you're likely to have Oathkeeper, Oblivion, or even the Ultima Weapon, all of which are solid upgrades to this.


Divine Rose

Stats:
- ATK 10
- STR 7

Description:
A powerful weapon that is difficult to deflect. Capable of dealing a string of critical blows.

Obtained:
Talk to Belle in Hollow Bastion Library after freeing the Princesses.

Breakdown:
Difficult to deflect means that if you have the counterattack ability equipped, then the counterattack is almost always going to connect. Kind of useless as most enemies don't block your attacks and the ones that do wont normally do so twice in a row anyway. Its short reach and relative ugliness make it worthless.


Oathkeeper

Stats:
- ATK 9
- STR 6
- MP 1

Description:
Raises max MP by 1, and enhances magic and summon power. Capable of dealing a string of critical blows.

Obtained:
Talk to Kairi in the Secret Waterway in Traverse Town after defeating the Behemoth in Hollow Bastion.

Breakdown:
This is actually a really good weapon... In Kingdom Hearts 2. Here, it's really not that great. It is a very good well-rounded weapon, however. Strong, but not strong enough to take away from MP. Longer then the Kingdom Key, but not as long as others.


Oblivion

Stats:
- ATK 11
- STR 8
- MP -1

Description:
Possess colossal power, but reduces max MP by 1.

Obtained:
A chest in Hollow Bastions Grand Hall, opposite the doorway to the world's heart.

Breakdown:
A very good weapon and a solid upgrade to Metal Chocobo unless you really want that insane reach. I'll use this for a short time while I finish gathering supplies for the Ultima Weapon.


Ultima Weapon

Stats:
- ATK 12
- STR 9
- MP 2

Description:
The Ultimate Keyblade. Raises max MP by 2, and possess maximum power and attributes.

Obtained:
Synthesize all items in the Moogles' Item Workshop in Traverse Town.

Breakdown:
The best of the best. The only reason not to equip this is: A) you're
insane or B) you're out of your mind.

=========
Staffs
=========

Donald's weapon of choice. He specializes in Magic, so look for weapons that increase that attribute (“balancing” a stupid NPC will get you nowhere).

A staff strong in both physical and magical power. Raises map MP by 1.

Obtained:
Have the Fairy Godmother free all the summon gems, then speak with her again. (you know, if she was really so concerned about this creatures, wouldn't you think she'd give you this FIRST to help find them?)

- STR 8
- MP 2

Description:
A staff of immense magical and physical power. Raises max MP by 2.

Obtained:
Complete the Hades Cup alone (just Sora).


=========
Shields
=========

Goofy's weapon. I know, shield =//= weapon, but this is Disney and Goofy we're talking about. Remember what I said about making Donald “balanced”? Well forget all of that. It only applies when the character in question is actually useful unbalanced. Goofy's specialty is defense of himself with a single shield. Wont do you much good. You're best to choose shields that increase his attack.

Accessories


Accessories

Accessories are the second form of equipment. You can equip multiple accessories at a time, provided someone else isn't already using it AND you have an open accessory slot.

Accessories are used more to augment your defense then attack. There are some that do both however.

Also remember that if you equip a party member that is native to a certain world, then leave that world, they keep that accessory till you come back and un-equip it.

The Accessory Shop located in the center of Traverse Town first district sells accessories, but they're all pretty worthless. All dropped accessories by enemies is rare, but you'll fight so many enemies that you'll think it common.
