Weapons are the only equipment available for monsters. They are in general
used to increase the attack power of your monsters and do increased damage.
Some of them, offer increased damage versus certain types of monsters and 
others will attack all monsters on the field. Some weapons even recover your
HP/MP. There are even weapons that, when equiped during synthesis can
influence the gender of your monster, or the type of monster that comes out.

To equip a weapon, simply press X, move to the monster of choice, press A, go
down to equip, press A again, and you can choose your own weapon, or press the
first button "Strongest Weapon" and it will automatically choose the one that
increases your attack power the most.

In battle, the equipped weapon is automatically used, and can not be changed
until you can return to the menu screens. (You do not see the weapon in
battle...)

To unequip a weapon, you simply need to change it by selecting strongest
weapon again, or scrolling down to the weapon of choice and pressing A. You
can also go to your currently equipped weapon, then press A on it and it will
be unequipped.

Weapons are automatically unequipped when they are deposited into the monster
storage, and when they are synthesised together. During synthesis, monsters
do not lose their equipped weapons, but are rather returned to the item bag.

|              Whips              | {WHP}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

Whips are a unique weapon, in the sense that they allow you to attack any
and all monsters on the opponents team. They do however, have disadvantages,
they offer lower attack bonuses, and have reduced damage when hitting the
second enemy, and is then further reduced when hitting the third enemy.

The whips damage reduction looks something like this:

100% normal damage on first enemy (no change)
75% normal damage on the second enemy
50% normal damage on the third enemy

So, if you did say 100 damage to the first one, you would do 75 to the second
and 50 to the third.

Of course, these numbers are just averages and can vary several percent in
either direction.


 
/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
|         Healing Weapons         | {HAW}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

Healing weapons can provide small amounts of HP after physcial attack the
monster they are equipped to does. They will say whether or not they restore
HP in the weapons description. 

Also note, that there are magic spells and some monsters have traits that 
allow them to restore HP after acting, but those do not follow the same 
formula.

The increases only work when there is HP to restore, and it can not be 
restored to above the monsters current max HP.

The HP increase is determined by these formulas. But is ultimately dependant
on the weapon used.

Damage Done / 8 = HP restored (Weapon: Miracle Mallet)

Damage Done / 2 = HP restored (Weapon: Miracle Mace)

So, the amount of HP restored is equal to half or one eighth of the damage 
inflicted on an opponent.

If you did say, 100 damage, you regain 50 HP with the miracle mace, if you do
200 damage, 25HP would be regained with the miracle mallet.



/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
|   One Hit Knock Out Weapons     | {OKO}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

Now, if you interpret the description of the war hammer and the warlord's
hammer it would appear as if the game has these kinds of weapons in it. Since
they both say they can "crush foes in a single blow".
Furthermore, people have pointed it out to me that there are other sites
that say this can happen, and some have claimed they themselves have seen it.

But, based upon 200 tests against skeleton soldiers (with both weapons) where
I only dealt an average of 145 damage to them, and only counted the first
attack, the only one hit knock outs were critical hits, which occured at the 
same rate they would with most other weapons.



/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
|      Critical Hit Weapons       | {CHW}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

These are weapons that increase your chances of hitting critical hits. For
example, with your monster if you can hit criticals 1.5% of the time, with
the headsman's axe you will hit criticals 3% of the time.  This effect does
stack with both traits that increase the probability of hitting criticals.

There are only three weapons that have this effect, and they are listed below:

Weapon                % increase
``````                ``````````
Headsman's Axe           1.5%
Gae bolg                 2.5%
Executioner's Axe        3.5%



/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
|      Weapon Effectiveness       | {WES}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

Probably not the greatest title, but this section is dedicated to the damage
increases done by weapons that have "lethal to _______" "useful against _____"
"for use against _____" and "to be used against _____" in their description. 
These mean that when attacking the described enemy, you will do increased 
damage to them.

This is a table with all of such weapons, the amount of increased damage, and
what monsters the increase is done against. For metal slimes, if you have
an attack power that deals less than 5 damage, it may appear as though the
increase is only one damage by some weapons. This is the value that results
from the game rounding up.

Darkonium slime, and gem slime.

Well, this is basically a list of all the monsters in the game and what weapon
types that they can, and cannot equip.

The first column, "Class" is self explanatory, it is there just to keep the
monsters organized.

The second column, is "Monster Name" that is the name of the monster you are
looking at.

Finally, the last seven sections of the table are for each distinct division
of weapons.
    - Swd is Swords/daggers (Divine dagger, Dragonsbane etc.)
    - Spr is spears/lances (Holy Lance, Hunting spear, etc.)
    - Axe is axes (Stone axe, Iron axe, etc.)
    - Hmr is Hammers/Mauls/Maces/Wrenches/Clubs (Oaken Club, Sledgehammer etc)
    - Wip is Whips (Battle whip, Thorn whip, etc.)
    - Clw is Claws (Orichalcum Claws, Stone claws, etc.)
    - Stf is staves/staffs (Plus Sceptre, Rune staff, etc.)

Under each of these respective columns is either a Y for yes, this monster can
equip this weapon, or N for no, this monster can not equip this weapon.

|        Equipment Vendors        | {EQV}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

Though out this games progression, there are an abundance of shops from which
you can buy equipment for your monsters. Below is a summary of all of the 
equipment that you are able to buy.

When it says "Vending Machine" I am referring to the devices inside of that
islands scout post, on the right side of the bottom half of the outpost. Or,
the thing that is beside the lady that lets you synthesise monsters.

The Lethal Weapons Armoury can be found to the right of the scouts post on
Domus island, talk to the man on the left side of the shop to see the equipment
Some of the stuff that is listed under that vendor will not be available until
you have fulfilled certain requirements in the storyline.

The Sewer shop can be found, in the sewer. Just before the jetties to Infern
and Xeroph island, there is an entrance on the right side. Take it and talk
to the Muscle man that is in the corner standing on the map. This is not
available until later in the game.

|    Unbuyable Weapon Locations   | {MDS}
\~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~/

So, this sections is, much like the weapons vendors section, dedicated to 
telling you how to get certain weapons. Weapons that can be bought from vendors
are listed above, and will not be listed in here.

The charts will all have the left column telling you what you have to do to
get something, the middle tells you where such an event is located, and the
right column is for the weapon you receive. For the Treasure chest chart, the
first two columns are combined.

The section referring to the man in HQ can be found directly behind the lift
that takes you in and out, standing beside a table. He will give you the 
zombieslayer as a reward for beating the game.

For the monster drops, which is the first section featured below, "Drops"
refer to an item that can be dropped after battle, or obtained from that 
monster by using the skill "Klepto Clobber." This skill can be learnt by
using the skill sets: Huntsman, Bounty Hunter, Captain Crow and Thief.
The easiest one to get is Huntsman. Just scout a hammerhood in the temple on
Xeroph island and it will have the Huntsman set.

Solitaire and the Black Dragon in the Drops section can be fought more than 
once, for the dragon you need to return to a scouts post and rest before
he comes back. For Solitaire, all you need to do is exit the building and go
back in. Estark however, is a one time only thing.

Gringham whip can also be dropped after defeating Solitaire, however, I do not
believe it can be stolen off of any of her monsters.
