List of Long Swords

From Golden Sun Universe
Jump to: navigation, search

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 Long Sword (長剣, Chōken?) class of weapons, which can be equipped by most warrior Adepts: Isaac and Garet in the first game; Felix and Piers in the second game; Matthew and Tyrell in the third game. The only exceptions are the Sol Blade and, in Dark Dawn, the Gaia Blade, which only Venus Adepts can wield.

All weapons that are counted as "common weapons" are weapons that can be bought in unlimited quantities in a weapon vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All weapons that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger weapons that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one weapon can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterward to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

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. Also, they are divided into groups based on what game they first appear in. Keep in mind that many of these weapons continue to be used in later games, even if they are not listed under that game's list of Long Swords.
