Weapon Tier List Explanation

High Damage Weapon Skills and Refinement

This Tier List considers not only the Base Attack boost provided by the weapon but also the percent stat boosts from Weapon Skills and their Weapon Refinement Levels.

Long Skill Cooldowns and Conditions are Valued Less

Some weapons trade off powerful effects for long cooldowns or intricate conditions. Due to these limitations weapons with these kinds of skills are valued less.
