I manage to do quite well on the random wifi (except when i become the angel in LvsD because I dont have that much experience with many weapons and they give me one I have no clue about lol) against the general (casual?) population. There are times though when I'm against someone who is clearly a pro, or in a room with everyone who is japanese, and I get completely destroyed. I have managed to clear all chapters on 7 difficulty and a few on 9, and I only have like 5 weapons that I use because they're really good (well for me) and I love using them. So I'm just wondering what is the best way to further improve my skills? And how do you guys get such awesome weapons with 6 stars and +4 mods, because I can usually only fuse them with one or the other? Also is there a guide somewhere that details the different attributes of the weapons?

    Sorry this is really long and probably noobish, but I really love this game haha.
    Well, to get awesome weapons, you have to start with collecting all sorts of weapons. Keep every weapon with some interesting modifiers that also have stars in either range or melee. Also note that the mods should be on a weapon with corresponding stars, eg Melee Combo on a weapon with melee stars only. It is possible to get rid of stars in a category, but I would not bother doing that, because it can be very hard - I'm still trying to isolate Melee Combo -2 and Melee Dash Attack -2 from weapons that have some melee stars on them...
    Also collect any weapons that have no modifiers and either no stars or stars in one category, they are really useful! They can be fused together to make weapons with stars only and eventually be used to isolate good modifiers from worthless ones.

    Once you have a bunch of weapons, start combining them into weapons that have two modifiers you like. Don't worry much about the stars, because they can always be gained afterwards. If you fuse a weapon with all modifiers you need with a boss weapon (for example Cragalanche Cannon, not all weapons named after bosses are boss weapons, though), then by fusing the result with the same or a different boss weapon (depends on your weapon) you will get the same weapon you started out with, but with more stars.

    An example would be my Fairy Orbitars: I started out with 5 stars in range, then I fused it with Phosphora Bow to get a 5.5 star Fireworks cannon with all modifiers present, then fused with a Phosphora bow again and got 5.5 star Fairy Orbitars.

    When collecting weapons, keep in mind that not only big buff modifiers are good, but also negative modifiers are worth collecting. Why? They make passing on multiple modifiers easier and lower the value of your weapon so that when you use your weapon and get killed, your opponent wont get a lot of points. You also get way more points killing an opponent with a higher value weapon. In LvsD, the team gauge lowers by the amount of your weapon value when you're defeated. And coupled with a negative modifier passing Overall Defence +8 is much easier than without.

    Also, if you have a second 3DS or a friend with a 3DS, then you can speed up your fusions by cloning weapons, because then you can not only keep your ingredients, but also combine your old results into new weapons with same or new modifiers.

    To improve your skills you simply have to play the game more often, play against different opponents, play with different weapons and find what suits you best.

    TL;DR?
    -> Collect a ton of weapons with good mods and stars in one category and play the game a lot.

    :0 I never knew that boss weapon thing! Thanks! And by boss weapon, do you mean the last weapon in the weapons list? (Like how First blade and Tiger claws are first on the list?)

    YOU ONLY HAVE 5 CHAPTERS LEFT -_-

    Boss weapons are the weapons you unlock after beating bosses. Twinbellows Cannon is an example.

    Think of a kid icarus boss, then think of the boss as a weapon. There's your answer.

    Are Pandora Claws boss weapons? I didn't think they were unlocked after defeating Pandora.

    @Leo I am able to go on. Not right now but maybe 30mins-1hour?

    Damn, those are some nice eyetracks...

    But I do see that you always have a negative health or defense mod on your weapons. Do you use bumblebee or playing dead to make up for it?

    I am going to open a LvsD room. Join at your leisure.

    He definitely doesn't use playing dead. That would be pretty stupid. I have shot defense -2 on my main weapon but I just make do.

    If you want melee, wait till you can make an ogre club. It 1 combo kills at 4 stars no traits so yeah.

    @Skyler SWD is right, the Ogre Club is REALLY good in melee. But if it's out of those only, I'd say the Magnus Club.

    SWD's Lancer staff is pretty good. It has just enough homing to go right around a corner and hit you. The bot on my team that turned into Dark Pit had no chance.

    @SWD: I had to go melee on you guys. You and Peng kept using bows and staffs and that Brendon guy was using Eyetracks.

    Yeah, all weapons last in the list are 'boss weapons'. The reason they are special is because of how modulo arithmetic works. In a nutshell, when you fuse a weapon with a boss weapon, then you will preserve the weapon index and change the weapon type. With the Fairies example above, I have a weapon with index 5 and when I fuse it with Phosphora bow, then I get a cannon which is of the same index as Fairies, that is a Fireworks cannon. You don't have to use the same boss weapon to convert weapon types - you can use any boss weapon for that and this is the easiest way to do a fusion loop.
    In this weapon fusion FAQ there's a list of fusion loops for each weapon type: http://www.gamefaqs.com/3ds/997768-k...ing/faqs/64051
    If you pick a boss weapon for each corresponding category, you are guaranteed to end up with the same weapon you started.

    And, well, yes, only 5 left to go. And I am pretty sure I can beat three of them if I try again a few times, since I've beaten them all on 8.0 already. I have no clue how am I going to conquer chapter 18 and 24 <_>

    Not necessarily - Twinbellows Cannon is not a boss weapon but is unlocked after defeating Ch 1.

    @Jay: Pandora claws is a boss weapon and is unlocked after defeating her, you just don't see that.

    I like Lancer Staff as well and I hoped to make a decent pair sometime ^^ My signature weapon must be my Fairy Orbitars now
