Weapon Story


 Level 1


In a distant kingdom, there lived two princes. The son of the queen consort was clever of mind but weak of flesh. The son of the king's second wife was dimwitted, yet charming, and quite gifted in the art of war."


 Level 2


Which prince would succeed the throne?  When news came down that the king had died in battle, the two men each declared themselves the next true king, rallying the people to take the side of one or the other."


 Level 3


In the midst of this coronation battle, a third man appeared claiming to be a prince.  Bright, capable, and brave, he dispatched the two foolish brothers and went on to become a wise and just king beloved by all."


 Level 4


Decades later, the king announced on his deathbed that he wasn't royalty at all, but in fact was the son of a commoner.  Upon hearing this revelation, the people stormed the castle and hung their beloved ruler from the rafters."

      At Level 4, it gives +10% Critical Hit Chance. This, when combined with high level Critical Up chip, can be devastating for the enemies.
      Turncoat is super useful in DLC Arenas, since there are many strong opponents. When even one of them turns in an ally of yours, it helps a lot to get away pressure from you.
      Also, since it's a spear, you can quickly give heavy damage to enemies from afar: if they're using short range weapons, like sword or axes, or circular saws, you may start damaging them before they had the chance to do the same to you.
      It pairs well with Cypress Stick.
