-Damage vs Gorillo
-Damage vs Leviathan
A ridiculously unwieldy weapon sometimes used by Skeletons. Requiring both dexterity and strength to use properly, they are widely known as "Suicide Blades", because they often get their users killed.
The Falling Sun, like the other Heavy Weapons, has an extremely high damage potential, sometimes doing enough damage to outright kill an opponent in one hit. Unlike the other Heavy Weapons, the Falling Sun is much faster and lighter, allowing it to be swung faster and block more effectively. An experienced user is someone to be feared.
The Falling Sun stands out among heavy weapons for its higher cutting damage compared to its blunt damage, making a lower grade weapon a viable Dexterity training weapon.
This weapon has inventory dimensions of 2x10, meaning it can only be used as a primary weapon. Like other heavy weapons, this item will not fit into standard inventories. It must either be equipped or carried inside a backpack.
High quality versions of this weapon are commonly found in the Scraphouse. Low to Medium quality versions of this weapon are sometimes found in shops in the Shek Kingdom.
You can also get a Meitou version of this weapon by going down to Cat-Lon and asking nicely for his.
