Just wrapped up a summoner 2 play-through (first time actually playing it through to the end, original game was stolen years ago). Used a forged blade with ice coffin for most of the 2nd half of the game. It was OP'd.
Have the 2 handed ice coffin blade on Joseph, and from remembering the first time I played this game to the end, it was the best weapon until the Summoning Sword which you can barely use.
Or is there anything I'm missing? Also what gear is everyone in? Not like the game is hard, but its always fun to do max/gear/stats on a classic.
