Playing Dark Cloud 2 again and trying to get the 135/90 stats on the weapons to get their final form, but it's kinda tough with so little gain on stats with each SP used.

I've been using the Weapon+5 trick to increase the stats on all the weapons easily, but I'm not sure which one to use to greatly boost almost all of the stats to be used on another weapon.

I'm currently on Chapter 7 and trying to power-up my weapons. What do you recommend?

I got Monica's Stana Brassard at +5 with 5 points left and have this for its stats:
Attack 150
Durable 70
Flame 135
Chill 20
Lightning 150
Cyclone 44
Smash 143
Exorcism 72
Beast 44
Scvale 46

And I'm trying to level-up Max's gun as well which requires both Flame and Chill to be 135 and I have Flame at 112 so it will be easy to get it to 135. However, Chill is 31 is it's going to take a while.

What weapon is easiest to get to +5 and raise its stats to give like a +40 boosts or something close to it?

I find that the exact weapon you use to upgrade with isn't too important. Weaker weapons have low element caps, so they're fine for leveling 2 or 3 elements a little bit. Middle class weapons have better caps so they're better for raising a single element but the weapon will take longer to reach +5. Personally when getting weapons to upgrade with I focus more on weapon abilities like wealth and ABS up than the base stats of the weapon.

Yes. Getting more ABS gain is a godsend to level up your stronger weapons at the endgame dungeons. I might need to look up what weapons give those abilities. Get the weapon and use it without leveling it? I don't need a +5 to give the ability to the main weapon.

Though I suppose I'll experiment around. I can make Max's Heavy Hammer and have 100 in its Lightning and Chill stats I think? Should help with Monica's bracelet. Making weapons with 100 in their stats could help speed the process up a bit.

Is there a list of the default stats of each weapon? Would help when making key weapons I need to power-up my weapons.

I'm one of the few traipsing around this board. If I see any question asked, I answer. It's the least I can do to keep this awesome game alive.

Not really... better to give fair warning then miss all of missable stuff that will help you in the long run.

It was a joke, hence the "/s" (generally means "What I just wrote was sarcastic"). It's a 16-ish year old game; I think even blatant spoilers are fair game at this point. :P
