Short Sword Recommended Upgrade Path

Short Sword Recommended Upgrade

Moon Short Sword

Being lackluster compared to other Straight Swords, players can take advantage of the fact that this is the starting weapon of a Magician and thus opt to upgrade it into a Moon Short Sword. This variant has a Magic bonus which will be extremely useful for a Magician.
