Jump to the ledge in front and then to 2 more pillars and another ledge with a chest on it. Open it to get the weapon.

Weapon Story


 Level 1


I was in a dead sleep when mum started shouting. "Wakey-wakey!" she squawked. "Rise and shiine! Today's a very important day! Today's your first visit to the castle!" ...Anoying, right? But I got up anyway." 


 Level 2


Today's my 16th birthday, and I have an audience with the king. Mum's apparently worried that he'll charge me with some big important task, so she gave me a cypress stick...for some reason. Pffft. Like that'll help."


 Level 3


As we walk to the castle, Mum keeps blabbing about how excited she is and how long she's been waiting for this day. She's told me this story a million and one times, so I just keep quiet like always."


 Level 4


When we arrive, I see my friend coming out of the castle. He's 16, too, but his fearless gaze makes him look like a legendary hero-to-be. I'm sure he's got a lot to live up to! MY dad's just a carpenter, so I've got it easy, heh."

      I am finding it quite difficult to finesse well enough the numerous jumps to the weapons location. Isn't there an easier way to obtain the Cypress Stick?

        For some reason I need different materials to upgrade this to Lvl 2. It requires copper ore, broken key and stretched coil.

          Could this be one of the strongest weapons in the game? It's damage may be low, but it can get a whole ton of critical damage.
