Longswords is a Weapon category in Death's Gambit Afterlife. The Longsword is a common weapon used by soldiers and warriors alike, it is the starting equipment of the Soldier class. A longsword provides balance between handling, close to medium reach, and sustainability. Each weapon features a unique moveset to their weapon type. Weapon categories grant specific Abilities to the player when equipped. The protagonist can equip up to two weapons, one in each weapon slot. While engaging in Combat, only one of the two slotted weapons may be used at a time, and the player may alternate between them at any point during a fight.

The only category of weapon that supersedes this rule are the Daggers, which are wielded in pairs, one in each hand, and only occupy one weapon slot.  Unlike other games, Shields do not occupy any weapon slots but are instead given their own, therefore you shall always have a shield available regardless of the amount of weapons you have equipped. Weapons can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite.

Upgrading Weapons

In Deatrh's Gambit: Afterlife, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death (this can be done early in the game), speak to him back at the Central Sanctuary and he'll teach you how to upgrade your equipment. From there, if you've also defeated the Soul of the Phoenix boss, you'll also gain access to upgrade your wares when you are resting at a Death Idol. Weapons can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite. To view your current inventory, press I.

Scrapping Weapons

With the same concept, once you've rescued Zuma, the Acolyte of Death, you can also scrap unwanted or duplicate shields in exchange for x1 Soul Stone. Scrapping can also be done from a Death Idol or speaking to Zuma.

Named after its tremendous power to shatter the sky with lightning, the Skybreaker is ingrained in Aldwynn's sordid past as its guillotine. History doesn't remember the myriad challengers who sought after this legendary weapon, but perhaps it will remember you. Upon reaching 100 soul energy, summon the ghost of the Bulwark. He explodes, consuming more soul energy per explosion and dealing damage to nearby enemies. He will continue exploding until you have less than 35 soul energy.

Innate lightning damage that does *2 on weak ennemies and bosses
