Hi, I want to upgrade one of those three Which weapon would be worth the shot? And tell me the reason? What would be the final stats for Lightning if that weapon upgraded to max level?

If you are choosing 1 of these and are not using Light as a commander, pick the edged carbine. Her magic is faster/ safer then her strike attacks.

Just wanna ask, why are upgrading all those weapons? I thought you mentioned in a another topic that you were tired of farming.

Yes a bit tired i guess.But, I love the nitty gritty when upgrading weapons or accessories. I love spending component and see how the exp accumulated when upgrading. I love the satisfaction when the level reaches star. Hahaha I guess that's just me.

I have easy access to weapon stats, but not to the final stats of Lightning. Can you tell us what her STR/MAG are when equipped with her maxed Omega (Blazefire) and no accessories?

Her Max Base STR/MAG is 1700/1700. So plus Blazefire Max 620/620 is 2320/2320.

Lionheart's ability is pretty useless most of the time. Its synthesis ability, Random: Instant Chain is useful for some battles, but you don't even get that at T3. If you want a balanced weapon, go with the Blazefire Saber or Axis Blade (They have similar dps. Blade is weaker but faster). Balanced weapons aren't that good for Lightning though, since her AI will alternate spells and strikes, which is very slow. The stat advantage of the Carbine and Gladius is pretty trivial compared to that.

The Gladius has better dps, but the Carbine is better at chaining.
