Top 3 Melia Weapons

Sun Staff

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 strongest Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon is easily the most powerful and well-balanced weapon of this list as it offers good defence and doesn’t sacrifice damage stats.

Dusk Staff

The Dusk Staff has an auto-attack damage range of 380-590, meaning it has the highest maximum auto-attack damage of the top 3 weapons. It has no Physical or Ether Defence. It does provide 12% Critical Rate though, which is a more favourable stat for Melia since she shouldn’t be on the frontlines taking damage anyway. Like the other two of the strongest Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon is great if you just want to focus damage and don’t mind the lack of defence. The large auto-attack damage range means the auto-attacks might be quite inconsistent though.

Comet Rod

The Comet Rod has an auto-attack damage range of 430-450. It has no Physical but it does offer 45 points of Ether Defence. It doesn’t have increase Critical or Block Rate though. Like the other two of the strongest Melia weapons, this staff has 3 gem slots. This weapon is good for the player who is looking for decent and consistent auto-attacks, as well as some Ether defence. Though, it must be said, the Sun Staff is still more favourable than this rod as it offers more defence, more damage and Critical Rate %.
