The Blessed Ankh (セイントアンク, Saint Ankh?) is an Ankh-class weapon found throughout the Golden Sun series.

Basic Description by Game[edit]

In all games the Blessed Ankh appears in, it increases the wielder's attack by 46 points. It can be bought for 1600 coins and sold for 1200 coins.

In Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age the Blessed Ankh was classified as a Staff-class weapon. In Golden Sun, it is sold in Imil, and can be equipped by Ivan and Mia. In The Lost Age, it is sold in Mikasalla, and can be equipped by Jenna and Sheba. Its original Unleash effect is Psyphon Seal (アンチエナジーレイ, Anti-Energy Ray?), which is effectively a standard physical attack that adds 14 damage points and then modifies the resulting damage based on the user's Jupiter Power and the target's Jupiter Resistance. It may also seal the target's Psynergy. Psyphon Seal visually resembles the user attacking the target and a holographic purple image resembling the Psynergy Seal icon appearing on impact.

In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Staffs and Ankhs were split into two separate classes of weapons. Thus, the Blessed Ankh is now the first Ankh-class weapon available to the player. It is sold in Kaocho, and can be equipped by Rief and Himi. The Blessed Ankh retains Psyphon Seal as its main Unleash, but also gains Berserk Rush as a secondary Unleash. Berserk Rush is a non-elemental physical attack that multiplies damage by 1.6.

Analysis[edit]

Players of Golden Sun should generally buy this as soon as it becomes available in the shop in Imil after Mercury Lighthouse, as it is one stage up from the Witch's Wand, which both Ivan and Mia could potentially have equipped by that point. It would suffice both as a strong weapon and as a hand-me-down when the next staff is bought later in Altin (the Psynergy Rod).

In The Lost Age, it is noteworthy as being an almost abnormally powerful and expensive artifact weapon for sale in Mikasalla very early in the game. While it would be a big attack upgrade if purchased, consider that on this continent, you can discover the Blow Mace and Hypnos' Sword weapon artifacts for Sheba and Jenna, respectively, so you could easily save yourself a lot of money by simply playing through the dungeons.

In Dark Dawn, the Blessed Ankh is available in the Artifacts section of Kaocho's weapons shop when the players first arrive. At that point of the game, only Rief can equip it. It serves as a good upgrade from the Witch's Wand, and will likely remain in his possession for some time, as the next weapon, the Psynergy Rod, can only be bought after Passaj's Alchemy Forge is activated.
