In Game Description[edit]

A hiltless uchigatana.

It has a blade that seems fairly wet. It was forged by a famous swordsmith in a distant country, but since the wielder must grip the blade, it's extremely difficult to handle, causing damage to the wielder.

Availability[edit]

  • Kill the Black Phantom Satsuki who appears in 4-1 when you have Pure Black World Tendency.
  • 4-2 - Treasure
  • After killing the third reaper in 4-2, go down the hallway and you will enter the slug room
  • Go straight forward until you fall off behind a sarcophagus
  • To your right will be a small cave with about 4 Slugs
  • Kill them and search the body on the small island to find the Ronin's Ring and a Hiltless

General Information[edit]

The Hiltless is one of two unique katanas in the game. Every hit that connects to your opponent (whether it be their body, shield, or a weapon being two handed) will drain 3% of your HP. If you swing and hit another surface (i.e. walls, breakable objects, etc.), it will not drain 3% of your HP. Also, Backstabs and Ripostes are exempt from harming you for 3% damage.

Key[edit]

  • Name
  • Names displayed are according to the Atlus (NA) version of the game.
  • Name changes from the Asian version, if any, will appear in parentheses.
  • Damage
  • The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are X / Y / Z:
  • X is Physical Damage
  • Y is Magical Damage
  • Z is Fire Damage
  • Bleed, Poison and Plague are bonus damage over a period of 60 seconds. So, if a weapon has "Bleed 120", the victim will suffer 120 damage over 60 seconds, or 2 damage per second.
  • Each weapon has one or more physical damage types:
  • Normal
  • Blunt
  • Slashing
  • Piercing
  • Certain enemies are weak or strong against different types of damage types.
  • Durability
  • The durability of the weapon.
  • The effectiveness of the weapon will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
  • Weight
  • The Weight of the weapon.
  • Note that carrying over 50% of your Equip Weight will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
  • Stats Needed
  • The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively.
  • The Requirement stats for an weapon are W / X / Y / Z:
  • Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the Magic damage of the weapon.
  • Also keep in mind that your character gains a 50% bo [[nus to Strength by wielding a weapon with both hands, thus reducing the actual Strength required. For example, a character with 18 Strength can wield a Great Axe (Requires 26 Strength) properly if the weapon is held with both hands.
  • (18 x 1.5 = 27)
  • Stat Bonuses
  • The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus damage you do with the weapon, based on the associated Stat.
  • This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill).
  • Damage Reduction %
  • The Damage Reduction % of the weapon.
  • It dictates how much damage the weapon mitigates while blocking.
  • The Damage Reduction % stats for a shield are X / Y / Z:
  • X is Physical Damage
  • Y is Magical Damage
  • Z is Fire Damage
  • Guard Break Reduction
  • The Guard Break Reduction determines the amount of stamina expended to block an incoming attack.
  • A higher Guard Break Reduction also allows you to block stronger attacks without breaking guard and reduces the amount of stamina depleted from blocking attacks.

Footnotes[edit]

1. When two handing the weapon, only 12 Strength is required
