Can somebody please tell me what weapon in Kid Icarus: Uprising has the highest potential of petrification? Also, could anyone let me know if Air Battle petrification makes foes plummet down to the ground? I have a Midnight Palm on 3, a Flintlock Staff and End-All Arm on 1, and a Cutter Palm on 4. If I have others, I didn't study every single one of my weapons. Does anybody have any suggestions? By the way, most status shows in Air Battles, such as burn and poison.
There is no weapon that has a natural, no-modifiers-needed chance of petrification (or at least, none is mentioned in this list). Any weapon that has a petrification modifier is equal to any other weapon that has a modifier of the same strength; however, it's kind of unknown exactly how the effect is applied, so certain kinds of weapons may be more favourable:
- If the effect is applied after a certain amount of damage is dealt, then weapons that deal more damage will be more favourable.
- If the effect is applied as a percentage chance per hit, or after a certain number of attacks hit, then rapid-firing weapons are more favourable.
As far as I know, status effects do not appear in air battles, so petrifying enemies would be impossible.
