Weapons found in Vagrant Story fall into one of ten categories, called Designs for the purpose of this guide. The categories each have a section here, in alphabetical order. The individual weapons within that category are arranged by Attack (STR), from weakest to strongest. The levels of weapon Designs, from weak to strong, are called Tiers for the purpose of this guide.

The results of Combinations of the eight weapons of the Mace Design with all of the 90 weapons in Vagrant Story are shown here. A combination of a weapon Design of a particular Tier with one of the same Design and Tier results in either that same weapon, in most cases, and the next higher Tier, in the case of end-Tier weapons, but the Affinities and Classes of the ingredients are combined. For more on the effect of combinations on Affinities and Classes, see Combine in Vagrant Story.

Combination Analysis

  • Generally speaking, it can be observed that weapons belong to Design groups, such as Swords or Polearms. Within these Designs, individual weapons belong to Tiers, ranging from least powerful to most powerful. Some Designs have six Tiers, others eight or ten or even twelve.
  • Weapons of the same Design, in adjacent (consecutive) Tiers, will advance, creating a weapon of the same type but the next higher Tier.
  • Weapons in the same Tier, of any Design, are more likely to combine productively. This results, as with armor, in a Morph to another design. Unlike armor, there are often two other Morphs. These often occur from either Design being one Tier higher than the other. However, the second and third Morph may instead be from only one Design, and two or more Tiers higher.
  • A weapon in a lower tier will often 'devolve' the higher weapon to the same type but a lower tier. This is called Mismatch in these guides and can be useful if the product is rare (see the Combines section)

Table Key

  • + Progression: Same-Design combinations of consecutive Tiers that combine to make the next higher consecutive Tier of that same Design. These are usually marked with +
  • / Morph: Design A + Design B = Design C. These can be useful to turn unneeded weapon Designs into ones that can fill in gaps in Tier Progression. They occur most often near same-Tier combinations, and are often Regular, with most or even all of the combinations of same, one-apart, and two-apart Tiers giving the same Design result. Irregular Morphs often occur far away from the same Tier, and usually occur when the Design of one ingredient has many more tiers than the others, and there are therefore extra combinations above the same-Tier ones. So a combination of the fifth tier weapon of a Design that has six tiers with a sixth tier weapon of a Design with eight tiers yields a useful fifth tier product of another, third Design with six tiers. It is not a lower tier than both of them, but it is lower than one of them. The usefulness depends entirely on the availability of the product as a drop or chest item and the demand for it in the production chain of the third or other Designs; usefulness is not distinguished when marking it as a / item.
  • L and S are used for the two versions of Footman's Mace; L for Large or Long, and S for Small or Short, choice of mnemonic is up to the reader.
  • Sometimes there are two different products of the same ingredients, depending on which order the ingredients are added. The first product listed represents a combination of the first ingredient from the left, vertical column of ingredients in the first Combine slot.
  • - Mismatch; there tends to be a much heavier penalty on combinations that are close together but not consecutive, than there is for combining a very low weapon with a high one. This can be seen in the combination of the high Tier Bullova axe with Great Axes; the very lowest Great Axe combines to make a mid Tier Axe. As the Great Axes go up Tiers, the product drops in Tier. It goes up again at two Tiers below, and becomes a Morph at one Tier below.
  • = Equal Combinations potentially improve the Class and Affinities of weapons without changing their Design or Tier; Daggers are a Design that commonly produces Equal Combinations (and does not change their Material, either, due to being furthest along the chain of Design Prevalence).

Blades Edit

Axe and Mace Edit

Axes and Maces are very similar in use; chopping and hammering are similar actions with different effects. They both have short handles. They are lumped together in the ingame item description. Their damage leapfrogs in early levels. For the purposes of Break Arts, they are most definitely the same weapon. This has lead some guides to group them together in Combinations tables.

However, they follow the patterns of different-design combinations and do not follow the patterns of same-design combinations; in these significant ways, they are different Designs for the purposes of Combinations. Every other two weapons of the same Design of consecutive Tiers will create the next consecutive Tier; Axes and Maces do not, with rare exceptions. Every other two separate weapon Designs have combinations between weapons of different Tiers that 'devolve' the higher Tier into the same Design of a lower Tier than either weapon; this, Axes and Maces do.

Great Axe with Mace Edit

This set of combinations features two slot-dependent combinations, both with Double Blade. Double Blade in the first slot, and War Hammer in the second gives Bishop's Crosier. Reverse the ingredients to get Shamanic Staff. Double Blade first slot + Bec de Corbin makes Mjolnir, the reverse yields Gloomwing.

Staff with Mace Edit

Sword with Mace Edit

Maces combined with swords may make Great Axe or Staff morphs.

Maces are a separate design from Axe for the purposes of Combine; see Axe and Mace.

Axes, Maces and Swords are fairly easy to find in at least HAGANE in the midgame. As in most roleplaying games, they are overpowered in comparison with two handed weapons, offering nearly as much damage and superior defense by allowing shield use. Consider using high-damage two handed weapons anytime Ashley can kill before much damage is dealt, though, especially when farming for drops.

Mprphs are Staff, Great Axe and Heavy Mace
