Dark Cloud - Weapons

Weapons- The weapon system is pretty fun in Dark Cloud. The weapons are what are leveled up in Dark Cloud so understanding how to customize your weapon is quite important. Weapons in this game have health and experience well not necessarily called that but you get the point. All weapons but a character's default weapon will disappear when it loses all its health. That is why it is important to keep a repair powder handy to heal it before a weapon breaks. A weapon also gains experience with each defeated monster when a weapon levels up it gains stats, and some stats or attributes can be enhanced even more with items equipped to the weapon while it is leveled up once leveled up those items are permanently added to the weapon's stats. Items can up things like the attack, speed, and endurance, as well as increasing the damage to certain types of monsters: equipping the undead buster will increase damage to skeleton type monsters. Weapons can have a type attribute, the type can be changed if the weapon has enough points in that attribute. So one can change a weapon depending on what kind of monsters are being faced. Depending on what kind of stats a weapon has it can be built up into a stronger weapon, also at level 5 a weapon can be broken down and used to upgrade other weapons with 60% of the original weapons stats.
