Heroes of Ardania Wiki

Weapons are items used for ranged and melee combat. Weapons are generally used to grant or enhance the hero's weapon damage, although many weapons also grant additional bonuses. Weapon can be enchanted up to +3 in any Wizards Guild and up to +4 in Lormidia after the completion of the Ascend the Wizard's Tower quest. Basic weapons can be obtained from the blacksmith, while more advanced weapons are found by adventuring or are crafted from schematics.

Most classes rely on weapons as their main source of damage. In addition to providing damage, many weapons also confer additional combat stats bonuses. The unique case is for Monks, who derive most of their weapon damage through the willpower stat, but may also equip weapons to enhance damage. Weapons are not needed for casting spells that the hero has learned. However, certain special weapons confer spells to the user or other stats bonuses relevant to spellcasting.

Basic weapons[]

The items below are the "original" weapons from Majesty. These weapons are plain in that they do not confer any bonuses in addition to the basic weapon damage, with the exception of the bows. Basic weapons are classified by tiers known as levels. Weapon damage increases by +1 for each weapon level. Weapons up to level 4 can be socketed, as indicated by the (§) symbol.

Crafted weapons[]

See also: Schematics

Many schematics allow heroes to assemble power weapons. There are two sets of schematics:

  • Schematics of the first set are purchased from Valmorgen's Library. These schematics require, as ingredients, a level 6 basic weapon along with two or three "black" and/or "carved" accessories. Weapons crafted from these ingredients are generally mid-tier.
  • Schematics of the second set are found in the Abandoned Library in the Dark Forest. Dark Forest items can be upgraded (indicated by "→") at the Imp Workshop in the Desolate Wastelands once the Imp's quest is completed and the listed ingredients have been obtained. Weapons of such origins are generally the most powerful.
