This list provides indepth information on the best Dunban weapons in the game.

Top 3 Dunban Weapons

Machina Blade III

This weapon can be dropped by Offensive/BRAVE units and Meditative Varla in Agniratha. You are also able to obtain a version of this blade from the Shop in Hidden Village, however, it is not nearly as good as the one dropped by the Mechon enemies, since it only has one gem slot, instead of three. This weapon has an auto-attack damage of 620-800. This weapon does not provide any increase in Defence, Critical Rate or Block Rate. However, this weapon can damage Mechon enemies, so it makes up for its lack of other stats. The weapon also has three gem slots, like the other top weapons. This weapon is tailored to fighting Mechon and should only really be used for Mechon enemies since the other top weapons in this list provide increased stats.

Darkness Sickle

The Darkness Sickle is dropped by a variety of higher level enemies, such as Green Feris in Satorl Marsh and Opulent Flamii in Colony 9. It has an auto-attack damage of 660-880, meaning it has the highest maximum damage of the top weapons. It provides no Ether or Physical Defence or Block Rate, but it does have a Critical Rate of 18%. The weapon also has three gem slots, like the other best weapons in this list. This weapon focuses on damage and critical hits over defence, so this is the perfect weapon option for the player who wants as much damage as possible. The weapon also has three gem slots.

Wyvern Cutlass

The Wyvern Cutlass is dropped by Bizarre Ragoel and Trava Kromar in Eryth Sea, and Asara Telethia in Alcamoth. It has an auto-attack damage of 780-850, meaning it has the highest average auto-attack damage of the top weapons. This weapon also provides 50 points of Physical Defence, but no Ether Defence. The Wyvern Cutlass has a Critical Rate of 15% and a Block Rate of 10%. The weapon also has three gem slots, like the other top weapons. This is a well balanced weapon that provides high damage and also some defence. This weapon is a good choice for the player who wants high levels of damage without sacrificing defence or Block Rate %.
