Murasame5450ATK + 15%

Bloodstorm Revolution Damage +20%

Taunt +1
3Launch Coin Shop

B&S Coin Shop

Victor (Skill)

SMyuria (Skill / Taunt for aggro)
A great choice from the launch shop if Victor was your starter pick. Boosts his main use ability, gives scaling ATK and taunt boost at mlb. Despite not having an element, very solid weapon.
Searing Sword840842Imbues Attacks with Fire Element

Vampric Flash Damage +20%

n/aB&S Coin Shop


Victor (Skill)

Shimada (Skill)

Fire weakness bosses (Frost Tree)
Excellent pick from the coin shop given its immediately useful element imbue. Falls a bit flat on other stats, but carries itself solely on its imbue.
Demon Saber835836Dark Damage Dealt +15%

Mirror Blade Damage +20%

n/aB&S Coin Shop


Victor (Skill / Element)

Stephen (Skill / Element)
Not great except for its base stats, boosts Dragon Roar slightly.
Mizuchi5300ATK + 15%, DEF -15%

Dragon Roar Damage +20%

n/aB&S Coin Shop


Victor (Skill)

Stephen (Skill)
The ATK up DEF down usual, average substitute for the unconditional weapon from transmute pool.
Eldar Lord Rapier475476Dark Damage Dealt +30%

Cursed Reaping Spark Damage +20%

INT +20%
5Frost Tree Coin ShopFaize (Skill)

Pretty much just Faize.
Faizes BiS weapon. This weapon is 100% futureproof and is a neccessity for any Faize player. It syncs perfectly in his kit, and it's limit break effect allows him to reach incredible levels of INT. There is never a better weapon for Faize, and this weapon is what allows him to remain relevant for a long time.
War Gods Brand850848Multi-Target Damage +20%

Dragon Roar Damage +20%

Damage +10%
3GachaStephen (Skill)

Victor (Skill)

Not recommended
It's bad. Don't pull for this. Skill buff is useless, and its damage type is useless, given low attacking stats on our current defenders.
Bluewave Sword531529Thunderfire Slice +20% damage

Taunt +1

DEF +10%, if being targeted by enemies
5Everlasting Summer Part 1 Store (Predate Queen)SMyuria (Rush)

Keep if lacking Murasame
Summer Myuria's event weapon comes, expectedly, with DEF and Taunt, which she greatly appreciates. The only other taunt weapon is Murasame, which also does well. If you have it, it works slightly better, double-scaling with SMyu's aggro-based ATK buff, but overall this will work great if you don't.
Ryugu-Maru963964Gain Thunder Attribute

Absorb 15% of Damage Dealt by Regular Attacks as HP

ATK Based Damage Taken -10%, if being targetted by enemies
5GachasMyuria (Synergy)

Lightning weak bosses (Jie, etc.)

Very good sheath would pull /10
This is a monster BnS, not just for sMyu, but for any general user. This will be a must-pull for any BnS user for the most part. Don't kill your gem pool for it, but with lifesteal as a 2nd factor, it's very solid. If you get to 3rd factor via luck, the ATK damage down doesn't hurt either.
Augaus861859Diabolic Whirl +30% damage

AP cost -10%

Absorb 10% of Damage Dealt by Regular Attacks as HP, if being targetted by enemies
5Marezeria Coin [Blue] Event ShopVictor (Skill)

It's okay. It does have better stats than the Blue Wave, but doesn't really have as much synergy. sMyuria is the best candiate for needing the AP cost, but it boosts Victor's rush. Overall very weird, can be usable if lacking Murasame, or don't need the Taunt from Blue Wave. Victor probably prefers Searing overall. Lifesteal with aggro is very useable though.
Hyouga586582ATK +15%

Imbue Attacks with Ice Element

Absorb 10% of Damage Dealt by Regular Attacks as HP
5GachaAll Sheathe Users

The only ice sheathe for quite a long time, and it has great factors overall. +15% ATK brings its stats up closer to the modern powercreeped global weapon levels, and if you somehow manage to MLB it (never recommended unless whaling), you also get HP drain. A great weapon and definitely worth pulling for a copy of.
Devil's Saber478474Absorb 5% of Damage Dealt by Regular Attacks as HP

Crit Rate +4% INT

Damage Taken -5%
5Event Shop (Michael)Transmutation Fodder

bargained with the wrong devil/10
Sucks the life from those it slices and incites its bearer to kill. 478 474 5 It gives a decent set of talents, too bad they're almost too low to matter. Lifesteal is decent even at 5%, if you really want to hold on to this, but otherwise best as fodder.
Daikiga Iwato491489Unbridled Double Slash +10% Damage

Damage dealt to demons and humanoids +15%

ATK +5%
5Executioners (Event Shop)

Executioners (Achievement)
Transmutation Fodder

nothing memeable/10
It's an event weapon. Fine if you have nothing, bad if you do. This one notably has two racials and a minor scaling ATK, so it might be worth holding onto if you're really picky about keeping weapons.
