List of Fists and Claws
Weapons in the Golden Sun series belong to multiple classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them and how the weapons appear in the hands of Adepts during battle sequences. The weapons listed here belong to the Fist and Claw classes of weapons, which weren't introduced until the third game in the series. Although technically separate classes, and as a result have separate "Unleash experience gauges", Fists and Claws are often grouped together because they can currently only be equipped by Sveta, and are the only weapons available to her.
Unlike other weapon classes, all Fists and Claws are considered Artifacts. This means that, if dropped or sold, they can be re-purchased from any weapon vendor.
The prices the games assign to each weapon are quite reliable indicators of how good each weapon is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A weapon that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other weapon even if the other weapon has a higher physical attack rating than the more expensive weapon. Therefore, the following weapons are all arranged by price.
