In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, best weapons refer to the rare and legendary blades and you should carefully assign blades to your characters, because they have certain strengths to support your heroes. If you want to get rare and legendary blades, you have to deal with the Resonate. This occurs automatically as you follow the story.
Where Can You Find Core Crystals
There are different types of core crystals in XC2 and if you want rare or legendary blades then you also need to find rare core crystals. However, it doesn’t matter which core crystal you use, the blade that results will always be random. This, in turn, means you can get common blades out of rare core crystals, while it can happen that a common core crystal gives you a rare or legendary blade.
To get the crystals, you must collect the loot from defeated enemies or search treasure chests and you’ll also get crystals as a reward for completing certain quests. For example, on blade quests, you’ll get a unique core crystal that will guarantee you a rare or legendary blade.
Although it is possible to get rare or legendary blades by a common crystal, the probability is very low. And luck plays a big role here as well. If you want to increase your chances, you have to use Boosters. The higher the level of boosters (bravery, truth, compassion and justice), the higher the chance of a rare blade. If you get a common blade, don’t worry. Just release her and enjoy a booster enhancer. You can then invest this again in rare core crystals.
Below you’ll find all blades sorted by their role. There are three roles altogether:
- Attack: The purpose of the blade is to do a lot of damage.
- Defense: The purpose of the blade is to increase the fury of the opponents and to attract attention. It has high KP values.
- Heal: If the master is a healer himself, then the blade reinforces him with high ether values.

Equip Blades and Change
If you want to equip your blades, you have to press Plus to get into the menu and go to Character. Select the hero to whom you want to assign a blade and then the Blade Partner option. Now you are looking for an empty slot and assign this to the desired blade.
If you change the blades or want to assign another companion, then this is also possible. Go to the menu and then choose the option "Blades". Here you can use the "transfer protocol" and assign the blades to other heroes.
Generally, you should pay attention to selection here. Always compare the weapons they carry and the perks that are strengthened by a bond. Make your decision well thought out.
