I started playing Dragon Quest 9 recently, and i did some research on forums and other websites about what people say for weapon types in this game. There are some people who say that swords are the strongest and best weapons in the game followed by axe and spear and that other weapon types aren't even worth using in late and post-game.
Now that got me a bit worried. Even if swords, axes and spears are far better then other types in late and post-game are other weapon types still viable or would i have really hard time with them? From what Iv'e read some swords (falcon) are overpowered and so are some axe and spear skills, but i don't really care about being overpowered, I'd be fine with other weapon types as long as they don't get so weak in late and post-game that it would be very hard to play the game.
I'd appreciate as much information about this as possible as I'd really like to play with other weapon types then swords, spears and axes but not if they're utterly weak late/post game.
