Why Asterisk Weapons are the Strongest

They Provide All the Passives Abilities of a Given Job

There are 22 different Asterisk Weapons available in the game. There is one for every Job except for Freelancer and Monk. What makes these weapons outstanding is their ability to use all of the passive abilities of the Job they represent.

This allows you to essentially have more than just 5 Passive Abilities for your character. This also opens up a lot more strategies for you to experiment with, without losing the perks from your other Jobs.

The Passives Even Overlap

This can be especially useful for Jobs such as the Thief where, when equipped with multiple Givampalui abilities, has the steal rate for rare drops raised to 75%. With Rob Blind, you can also steal up to 4 items at once from each enemy.

How to Get the Strongest Weapons

Farm Weapons in the Hall of Tribulations

Obtained from an Asterisk user as a normal drop

Many of the strongest weapons in the game come in the form of the Asterisk Weapons. These weapons can be dropped by their respective Asterisk holders in the Halls of Tribulation. Most Asterisk Holders will have their weapon as a normal drop, however, Dag and Lonsdale have their equipment drop as rare drops. To get theirs easier, we recommend equipping the Gambler's passive ability Rare Talent.

Don't use Rare Talent for the other Asterisk Weapons

Since Rare Talent increases your chance to receive rare drops, it actually lowers your chance to get the Asterisk weapons as they are considered normal drops. Avoid equipping Rare Talent or the Longshot Bow when farming for the other Asterisk Weapons to maximize your luck to get them to drop.

Hall of Tribulation Portal Locations

You can also get strong equipment by stealing

The bosses of the Halls of Tribulations also have strong equipment among the items you can steal from them. If you are skilled enough, you can use this chance to gain strong weapons from drops, and steal strong equipment from steals in one go!
