Golden Sun: The Lost Age Tips

Strong Weapons
Here are some of the strongest weapons in the game and how to get them.

Sol Blade - No forging or enemy killing to get this weapon. This weapon is in a treasure chest in Mars Lighthouse. It's in the room where you have to jump on normal small platforms as well as icy small platforms.

Darksword - This isn't a really powerful sword in terms of it's unleash, but it's attack increase is the best in the game, but it's cursed.. It's quite easy to get this item. Beat Karst and Agatio on top of the Jupiter Lighthouse. As a prized item, they give you some Dark Matter. Bring the Dark Matter to the Blacksmith, but right before giving it to him, save it. Now give it to him and go in and out of town once. Keep doing this until you get it. Just be patient, there is only 10% chance of getting this from the Dark Matter.

Excalibur - Get this sword from forging it from Orihalcon. This is possibly the best weapon in the game due to it's unleash. If you want an Orihalcon, look in the Mars Lighthouse, or the Sea of Time Islet. Or if you transferred data from the first Golden Sun game, Hamma will send over and Orihalcon in a chest as soon as you board your ship with wings for the first time. Do the same thing with this as you did with the Dark Matter, but for this item, you have to be even more patient, because you will only have a 5% chance of getting this weapon forged from the Orihalcon.

Lachesis' Rule - This is dropped by a monster in the Anemos Inner Sanctum. If you don't have all 72 Djiin, then forget about this weapon. Just attack all the monsters with the Djiin they are weak against (Just try all of them), and you will eventually get this. Again, be patient on this weapon also.

Tisiphone Edge - This dominates Excalibur as the strongest weapon in the game with a 3 to 1 ratio. To get this weapon, keep defeating Cruel Dragons in Islet Cave (If you don't have access to this yet, you must do the trading sequence, and no, I'm not going to explain that also) with a Mercury Djiin, making sure that the Cruel Dragon doesn't damage you or make his turn in every way. There is still a very low chance of this item dropping from it, so be patient.

There you go, the 5 best weapons in the game. In case you wanted to know the order in my opinion, I will list it.

1. Tisiphone Edge
2. Excalibur
3. Sol Blade
4. Lachesis' Rule
5. Darksword
