Weapons are items that are used to attack and defeat mobs. There are four different categories of weapons: Light Melee, Heavy Melee, Archery, and Magic. Defeating hostile mobs while a weapon is equipped will award the player with Combat XP as well as XP for the combat skill of the weapon. The damage for each weapon increases for each level of the corresponding weapon skill that the players have.

Melee weapons

Melee weapons are weapons specialized for close-combat attacks. They have a chance to do critical hits which increases damage by 50%. Melee weapons also have a certain range of attacking.

Heavy Melee weapons

Heavy Melee weapons typically deal more damage than Light Melee weapons but have a swing speed that is ~10% slower.

Light Melee weapons

Light Melee weapons are able to attack every 0.5 seconds except for the rageblade, which can attack even faster. However, they generally deal less damage than Heavy Melee weapons.

Shields

Shields are weapons that are able to damage and reduce damage from mobs.

Ranged weapons

Ranged weapons are not as effective in close combat, but more so at attacking mobs from a distances.

Archery

Bows deal different amounts of damage depending on the duration that the bow has been drawn and the player's Archery level. Full charges will deal full damage, while short charges deal less. Bows require arrows to fire, using 1 arrow per released charge. These arrows cannot be retrieved, even if the shot does not hit an enemy.

Magic

Magic weapons do not have a "charge" function and do not require any form of ammunition. Some magic weapons such as the tidal spellbook and staff of Godzilla deal area-of-effect (AOE) damage upon impacts.

Critical hits

Melee weapons have a chance of dealing a critical hit (referred to as "star strikes" by Ivon). Critical hits deal 1.5x of the weapon's base damage. All ranged weapons except for the static scepter do not possess the ability to land critical hits.

Since the January 22, 2021 update, critical hits dealt from melee weapons will deal a fixed amount of damage instead of a ranged amount.

Event weapons

These are weapons that are limited and can no longer be obtained after their respective events have ended. They can still be obtained through trading with other players.
