So why should I care about Revenant Weapons?
Revenant Weapons have two purposes:
- Used as mainhand weapons for your Main Character; or
- Used as part of the process to unlock the Eternal characters.
Please read the wiki page about Revenant Weapons to understand how to upgrade and element-change your weapon.
There's so many weapons! Which should I pick if I need a mainhand?
By now, you probably have an idea about what your Weapon Grid is. You’re also at the point where you keep asking yourself “What are good mainhand weapons to use for my Main Character?”
This is where Revenant Weapons come in. These can be be some of the best mainhand weapons you can use in this game. But it can be overwhelming to decide which weapon to use.
So here’s a very simple tier-list for what you should pick if you’re looking to get some shiny new mainhand weapons.
|S-Tier mainhands||Highly recommended for new players!|
|The is one of the best mainhands in the game thanks to providing 30% on Ougi. Even end-game players still use this weapon because it’s so good! This weapon is used by basically every single element. Some exceptions apply, but by the time those exceptions matter, you’ll be an end-game player.|
When you are starting out, the class you will play the most in solo play will likely be Dark Fencer (and is the Tier III class you should rush for ASAP). So getting a good Dagger mainhand will give you a big power boost.
|The is the best mainhand Harp weapon for many elements. The Heal on Ougi and extra debuff success make it a very potent weapon.|
The Superstar and Elysian classes are also very popular thanks to the ability to provide buffs, debuffs, and support to your team. There are a few exceptions to “best in class” Harp mainhands for some elements. These are:
|A-Tier mainhands||Good, but niche|
|The Side Stories or events. Some good spears are locked behind HL content (e.g. ), so you won’t be able to get them for a while. This weapon is a good stop-gap measure. is a good mainhand Spear weapon whenever you need one. Not all elements are fortunate enough to have easy access to a Spear mainhand with an ATK skill from |
The reason Spear mainhands are so highly prized is because the best raid content classes are Holy Saber / Bishop, and their Tier IV equivalents Spartan / Sage. These are all Spear mainhand classes. Using a Spear also lets you take the Valkyrie extra skill to further help the raid.
|The Mechanic in order to abuse the “instant Strike Time” ability. The on Ougi will help the rest of your party maximize damage for that burst turn.is for any element where you are struggling to find a Gun type mainhand, but you want to play|
|The is an easy good choice to use whenever you need a Fist weapon. It may not always be the best min/max choice, but it’s always a good choice for all elements.|
The main reason why this weapon is niche is simply because the Ogre and Luchador classes are niche. These are very damage focused classes. For newer or weaker players, you likely want to be using a debuff focused class in order to clear solo-content. For raid type content, you likely want to play a more supportive class such as Holy Saber instead and let the stronger players carry you.
What about all of the other weapons?
When you are starting out, you likely will default to the core classes given how important they are, so the other weapons are less useful to you. Many of the remaining GW Weapons are also not very good, or have highly niche uses and therefore aren’t worth worrying about at this stage. So their main use will just be for recruiting an Eternal character you want.
