Visual effect of Flare Burst
|Effect name||Flare Burst|
|Side effect||May restore the user's HP by the amount of damage done|
An Apollo's Axe (アポロンアックス, Apollo Axe?) is an Axe-class weapon found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. They are acquired by bringing a Salamander Tail item to Sunshine the blacksmith in Yallam so that he may randomly forge it into this or several other items that you then may buy. Being an axe, one can be equipped by Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers. Its Buy value (and thus its price for forging) is 15200 while its sell value is 11400.
An Apollo's Axe increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 158, and this weapon is especially notable for being one where standard attacks are based on the Mars element (the damage done is affected by how the wielder's Mars power compares to the target's Mars resistance). Its Unleash effect is Flare Burst (フレアバースト, Flare Burst?), unleashing at the standard rate of 35% of the time, which adds 54 points of damage before modifying damage based on the Mars element, and then has a chance to restore the user's HP by the amount of damage done. The Unleash visually resembles the Adept attacking the target and letting out a large fiery explosion on impact, with leftover orbs of energy converging into the Adept.
A strong late-game weapon whose innate Mars attacks make it score extra damage against, as a prime example, most of the monsters in Treasure Isle, and its Unleash's side effect gives it occasional potential to benefit the user at the same time as the enemy getting damaged. Of course, it has nothing on the end-game weapons with damage-multiplying effects that are considered the game's best, and it might not even be as good as Gaia's Axes and Stellar Axes, but on an Adept in the Brute class series, it can be a valid placeholder weapon. The chance of forging the Apollo's Axe from a Salamander Tail is 15%
- Apollo is a god in Greco-Roman myth. He is most known for being the god of prophecies and oracles.
