    Are you eyeballing the Platinum Sword? Maybe you have it and are unsure whether you should put precious materials into it. Well, let's take a looksy!

    PLATINUM SWORD REVIEW BY BERSERKOLOGIST
    [​IMG]


    MAX STATS (LV 35)

    ATTRIBUTEVALUE






    HP90
    INT BRV221
    MAX BRV2,683
    ATK854
    DEF55
    MAX CP30

    AFFINITY ABILITY:

    GREATER RED SPIRAL

    Red Spiral BRV boost.
    ATK Up duration+

    IMPACT
    Whew... just whew... does this sword have impact? Abso-freaking-lutely! Aside from the typical 5* weapon sheningans (good stats, nice affinity bonuses, etc) the affinity ability makes Red Spiral a downright howitzer.

    What's great about Platinum Sword, is that it increases the BRV damage on Red Spiral enough to where it can serve as a functional opener or closer. It's still a great ability without the sword, but you'll need to be more thoughtful when to use Red Spiral if you don't have Platinum Sword.​

    SHOULD I PULL?
    As of my writing this, this weapon might be among the most desirable. Vaan's kit is that effective and this weapon makes it even more wildly impressive.

    I'm not the kind of person to tell anyone to do anything. My preferred approach is to empower an individual to make their own decision through information and reflection. There are a few questions I'd ask when considering whether or not you should pull:

    1. Is Vaan needed for any content?
    Not really... but, he can definitely help you run most content on cruise control.
    2. Do you like Vaan?
    Only you can answer that.
    3. Will this speed up runs in say World of Illusions or other daily dungeons?
    Undeniably!!! Vaan's kit is practically MADE for daily dungeons or the use of books! Looking to speed run? That should make this decision a lot easier.
    4. Is Vaan viable without this sword?
    Sure. But the difference the sword makes is tremendous.
    If you ask my personal opinion on whether or not you should pull for this item, the answer is a confident yes.
    BERSERKOLOGIST'S EVALUATION / SCORE TERM (BESTâ„¢):
    AESTHETIC: 8 / 10
    UPGRADE IMPACT: 9 / 10
    NECESSITY: 6 / 10
    CURRENT VALUE: 9.5 / 10
    FUTURE PROOF: 9 / 10

    Wow insane pull. I pulled 4 times and only got one platinum sword. :( Still makes a big difference though, I'm loving Vaan with it.
