Description

This page provides indepth information on the top weapons for Melia.

Top 3 Melia Weapons

Ether Burst

Ether Burst can be obtained from a chest in the First Sanctum on Prison Island. The Ether Burst has an auto-attack damage range of 510-530. It has no Physical Defence, but does provide 25 points of Ether Defence. It also has 20% Critical Rate, but it has no extra Block Rate. Like the other two of the top Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon is good if you want a high Critical Rate %, as well as a decent auto-attack damage range and some Ether Defence.

Meteor Staff

The Meteor Staff can be obtained from Frost Nebula in Satorl Marsh or the Resplendent and Opulent Flamii in Colony 9. The Meteor Staff has an auto-attack damage range of 510-610, meaning it has the highest max damage of all of the top weapons. It has no Physical Defence or Ether Defence, though. This staff has a 15% Critical Rate, but it does not have an increase in Block Rate. Like the other two of the strongest Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon has a large min-max range so the auto-attack damage will vary. This weapon is not good if you want any sort of defence or Block Rate, but this staff focuses on auto-attack damage and Critical Rate %.

Sun Staff

Sun Staff can be obtained from Nebulae on Prison Island and Stormy Belagon and Lograt Kromar found at Eryth Sea. The Sun Staff has an auto-attack damage range of 520-560, meaning it has the highest minimum auto-attack damage of the top 3 weapons. It has 50 points of Physical Defence and 50 points of Ether Defence. It also has 18% Critical Rate and a 15% Block Rate. As is apparent from the stats, this weapon provides more defence than the others from its increased Block Rate and its high Physical and Ether Defence. Like the other two of the best Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon is very balanced and offers good defence and damage. It also has a higher Critical rate than Meteor Staff and even offers Block Rate too.
