Weapons Guide

This is a list of all the weapons available across the three scenarios of Shining Force III.

Because some weapons are only available in certain situations they have been colour coded. Weapons appearing with their names in black are available to buy in the shops, those with their names in orange are weapons that can be crafted from mithril (although some can also be found in the field and from haggling storekeepers, also the later shops in scenario 3 offer mithril weapons for purchasing), those with their names in purple can only be made by a smithy from Dark Matter, those with their names in blue are only available by making weapons out of the blue material, Orifalcon - in scenario 3 - and those with their names in red can only be found, and not bought (discounting haggles).

S Walch's Mithril Method
Forum-user and Shining Force III aficionado S Walch has let us post his Mithril Theory on this site. The idea is that you can judge which weapon the smithy will make for you based on timing his arm-swings in the shop. Sounds crazy, but check out S Walch's description and the juicy info:

S Walch's Mithril Method

The power value shown for each weapon in the list assumes that your weapon skill is zero, however, in addition to this boost to your power, a weapon also gives additional power increases when your weapon skill is at levels 1, 2 or 3. There are three different classes of weapons and they give different power bonus' at each weapon skill level. From the table below, you can find out how much additional power a weapon adds, in addition to its power value stated in the weapons list, at each weapon skill level.

Weapon Power Bonus'
ClassWeapon Skill Lv1Weapon Skill Lv2Weapon Skill Lv3

Additionally, some weapons give boosts to our magic power. Like with power, these weapons are divided into three classes (if the weapon has a magical class at all that is), and they boost your magic power by a different amount depending on your weapon skill and the weapon's magic class.

Since the list is very long, it has been split up over three pages to reduce the size of each page. The links to access the other pages are at the top right and bottom right of the weapons list.
