Infernal Armor and Helmet are the best armors
Spiky Crossbow is the best Crossbow
I don’t know the best melee but i have:
about 35 shogun ghosts- just keep capturing other cities and selling all the weapons u get to have so much money (I just sold 8 spiky crossbow)
i also have infernal armor and helmet, they need like about 99 dex or something but its nice
I also have the dragon axe thing that i bought at south desert i think i refined it to 10 and enchanted a rune that the description is: a rare rune blah blah blah (i forgot the name and description but the symbol is like the shogun ghosts skill)
i also have spiky crossbow refined to 5 (i already lost about 4 crossbows by trying to refine it to 10 so i just stopped at 5) and also enchanted by the same rune
Tip: You can use about 10 shogun ghosts to conquer so many cities i already used 10 of them to conquer the whole south desert and the great trade republic.
