Weapons in Salt and Sanctuary are a personal choice to the player based on his/her preference and playstyle. Any Class can use any Weapon as long as they have unlocked the Skill requirments for said Weapon. Some Classes begin the game with certain Weapons already unlocked, so be sure to choose a Class that begins with the Weapon type you seem likely to use.

 

Weapons come in different classes from 0-5. The higher the number the more likely the Weapon is to be better than what you have. Also, the higher the number the more points you will need in the Skill required to wield that Weapon type (All players can use class 0 Weapons of any type). There are 16 different types of Weapons in Salt and Sanctuary along with 10 different Skills that govern their usage. Some Weapons will require you to have acquired multiple Skills in order to use.

 

Important! If you see a red line across your weapon, it means you need to unlock the next weapon class to one-hand it. You can use it two-handed. Two red lines forming an X means you cannot use it at all.

Also Important, to determine if your weapon does Strike or Slash Damage, listen to the sound it makes when you swing. Weapons with blades will typically be slash while those without will be strike, but there are many exceptions, especially with Great Swords (whips to be tested).

 

Weapons can also be upgraded at any Sanctuary that has a Stone Blacksmith. Upgrading Weapons requires Salt and the upgrade material required. This number increases as you improve the Weapon and can change to different materials at higher levels. Upgrading Weapons improves their damage and can sometimes improve their Scaling.

 

Weapons have "Scaling" which determines which Stats improve the damage of the Weapon. The letters determine how much more damage increases with each point invested into the Scaling Stats listed on the Weapon (if you're not sure which they are you can check the Weapon in your inventory). S is the best you can get and will give you the most damage for each point followed by A, B, C, D and E. Note that scaling is based off of the weapon's base damage, not your attribute. For example, a weapon with S scaling in Dexterity and 6 base damage will do less damage than a weapon with E Dexterity scaling but 30 base damage even if you have 50 Dexterity.

 

Some Weapons in Salt and Sanctuary can only be found by Transmuting them at any Stone Alchemist in your Creed. In order to Transmute a Weapon you will need to have acquired another Weapon of the same type, acquired the appropriate Remains (drops from Enemies and Bosses), have the required Upgrade Material and the required amount of Salt. Upgrades on the Weapon used to Transmute will be rolled back one tier (if you have a Midshipman's Dirk V and Transmute it to a another Dagger it will become that Dagger IV.)

      Some stuff that this page potentially should have, but doesn't, so I'll put it down here so that someone more adept at editing might find a way to put this in:

      The weapons that have any magic scaling are: Branding Iron, Shikeimaru, Aster Monolith, Searing Manacle, Phoenix Tail, Stardust Spire, Black Widow, and Northern Cross, in addition to all Wands and Staves.

      The weapons that have any wisdom scaling are: Opal Tusk, Leviathan, Construct Coil, Trinity Bardiche, Purifier, and Gravewalker Greatbow.

      The weapons that scale solely off of strength are: Iron Pot, Lump Hammer, Barbarian's Cudgel, Cephalopounder, Tetruncheon, Mountain Breaker, Raider Axe, Stone Cleaver, Red Guillotine, Shrouded Bulwark, Chitin Obelisk, Jaws of Death, Seawolf Cutlass, Scharfrichter, Trinity Greatsword, Headtaker, Iron Butterfly, The Coveted, Castaway's Greatadze, and all Greathammers.

      The weapons that scale solely off of dexterity are: Tachi, Flint & Steel, Steel Centipede, Lowlander's Greatknife, Venom Arbelos, Bullwhip, Scorpion Tail, Naginata, Headsman's Voulge, Breach Pike, Adder Fang, Overlord's Bident, all Daggers besides Opal Tusk, all Bows besides Gravewalker's Greatbow, all Crossbows besides Hellfire Arbalest, and all Pistols.

      All other weapons scale on some combination of Strength and Dexterity.

        The page needs a explenation on fists and the scaling. Ill be looking into that in a few mins. I know there are aperrantly armors that increase fist dmg. But i have no clue if its dex or str that increases the damage. Update will follow, shortly ~NoMeCo

        • Pistols and crossbows Special05 Oct 2016 10:13  

          Pistols and crossbows can acquire the special properties of your main-hand weapons. For example, if you're using a wpn with HP leech property then your pistol/crossbow (of the same load-out ofc) will have it too. This also applies to throwing daggers which can benefit from charms too (With Eviscerator and Voracious charm, one wraithfang thrown = 1 HP back :D). So far I confirmed only a few specials that can carry on to your off-hand:<br/>-Extra Blades/Blunt<br/>-HP/MP Leech<br/>-Poise<br/><br/>Elemental damage does not seem to carry on your off-hand wpn UNLESS you buff your main-hand wpn with an element. It doesn't show visually on your off-hand but it works.

          • Spreadsheet with scaling numbers and AR calculation09 Aug 2016 12:53  

            I've put together a Google Docs spreadsheet containing the stats for every weapon in the game (except for the Oar, which I haven't figured out the stats for yet). It includes inputs for character stats, equipment, and buffs and will calculate each weapon's total AR (Attack Rating) based off of those.<br/><br/>Link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pSYaRDs8LH04Ohteq9-eftvMt8A90NvTEBwklrMvUG4/edit?usp=sharing<br/><br/>To edit stats, equipment, or buffs you will need to make a copy of the spreadsheet. If you don't want to edit any of those things and just want to see weapon AR and scaling numbers at soft-capped stats (50 points), then you don't need to make a copy. Just click on the Results tab at the bottom to see the weapon spreadsheet.

            • Weapon sorting by: Scaling08 Jul 2016 05:18  

              I don't think there is a way to sort weapons by their scaling for now, it would be incredibly useful for everyone to be able to look at the list of weapons with a given stat in mind, rather than look them up all individually.<br/><br/>Is there a way to do it efficiently or is the only to make a list one by one from scratch, I'm not familiar on how to create pages in this wiki.

              • Clerics06 Jul 2016 10:06  

                What the hell is with Wisdom in this game?<br/><br/>Holy doesn't exactly shred through bosses, and there isn't even one high tier weapon with more than 50 Holy damage on it at 50 Wisdom. That's so... disappointing. Your main stat is just practically useless.

                • Missing weapon info will soon be filled.05 Jun 2016 05:37  

                  Once I get my hands on a steam copy of the game later today (not able to acces my ps4 for a long long time) I will start filling out all the missing info of the weapons that still miss data on upgrade ranks, damage types and specific scaling info (1DEX gives 1.2dmg to 'insert weapon name' untill 30dex as an example)<br/>I love this game way more than I thought I would, and will be glad to help fill out the entire wiki with all possible info about everything where I can, I added a few things here and there already, expect more to come!

                  • Re: Strange Damages.02 Jun 2016 04:11  

                    I have tested weapons damage types agaist quite a few mobs. I am fairly certain of my findings but I could be wrong.<br/><br/>Hammers: 100% strike <br/>Sword: 100% slash<br/>Axes: 50% Slash 50% Strike <br/>Greataxes: 50% Slash 50% Strike <br/>Greathammers: 100% Strike <br/>Greatswords: 75% Slash 25% Strike <br/><br/>"Extra Blunt" and "Extra Blades" adjust these values 25% towards there respective damage type. There may be exceptions but I have found none.<br/><br/>Example: Battle axe with Extra Blades deals 75% Slash and 25% strike. (Same numbers that I found on the stone cleaver) The Spiked mace with extra blades deals 25% slash 75% strike. <br/><br/>Opinion: Most weapons are overshadowed by Greatswords and Greathammers especially the fast possible alternative weapon classes (Swords, Hammers, Spears, Greataxes.) More specifically a few Great weapons shine above the others without having well place alternatives. The Trinity Scepter, Jaws of Death, and Scharfrichter have extreme damage and speed making them more "effective" choices than other weapons,<br/><br/>Whether or not they should be nerfed or buffed (or if they will be even) is not what I care about. I would just like to see the weapons brought in line together a little more between the classes. Fast weapons have the option to have a shield so maybe the one hand move set should not be adjusted however there two hand move sets should be faster than the Scharfrichter unless they posses the "slow hitter" attribute. I do not think every weapon should be top tier but ever class should have at least one or two weapons that really shine. Without the attack speed charm the Kraekan Longsword is slower, has less reach and has half the damage of the Scharfrichter which can be holding the attack charm. It doesn't need to match the dps but should atleast be able to capitalize on openings more often. All smaller weapons could use an attack animation speed buff, or greatswords could use a global attack speed nerf. <br/><br/>Greathammers are more limited in speed except the Trinity Scepter. Not as extreme of a dominance over other weapons but the same logic applies. In that class and the greataxe class however I would like to see slowhitter removed from some weapons to encourage some different builds and force one to choose for plastyle not just as a handicap.<br/><br/>Greataxes need a buff as well. In the NG they are fine as a basic "get you through any enemy type" however they suffer later in the game unless you are using Flasks of Defilement. Since most tough enemies are resistant to one damage type they often fall further behind than they should while being almost as slow and less damaging than hammers. Adding in some scaling for dexterity (not E scaling, its just not enough) would let them hit higher damage in NG+ gamecycles without be too powerful in ng especially if there stamina usage was nerfed. Alternatively giving them slightly more speed would be enough if they had more demading stamina usage.<br/><br/>All this said this is a great game and don't let what powerful stop you from playinf what you enjoy. <br/><br/>Good luck and have fun - Coffee

                    • strange damages?01 Jun 2016 13:31  

                      some weapons seem to deal hybrid physical damages.<br/><br/>extra blade or extra blunt moving the balance more toward blunt or slash.<br/><br/>after testing some axes, sword and mace(of equal attack value) vs slash and strike weak ennemies(bolas eyes(resiste strike weak to slash) and squeletons(stron vs slash weak to strike)).<br/><br/>raider axe seem to deal 50% strike 50% slash, where "battle axe" and "stone cleaver" with the same damage value was doing 100% slash damages(extra blades?)<br/>classic axe seem to deal 20% blunt 80% slash<br/><br/>need more try to be sure..<br/><br/>have you seem something to coroborate or deny this?

                      • Fist has scaling?24 May 2016 17:12  

                        I'm doing a fist only run, and i noticed not matter how much lv me dex or str that fist keep doing 3 ~4 dmg per hit, is this true? If they don't scale i will have a bad and fan fun for sure.

                        • Goddess help me!!!23 May 2016 01:13  

                          As a cleric I started with a Flanged Mace. That's cool. But after using most of my skill points at wisdom I find myself lack of strength and my hammer has nothing to do with wisdom. After checking this table I find most of these weapons have nothing to do with wisdom. So what weapon am I supposed to use then? Guardian Blade?<br/>

                          • Transmuting22 May 2016 18:57  

                            Just FYI once you transmute a weapon it will no longer show up as an option for transmuting so be careful of what you transmute cause you won't get a second chance unless you can buy the same class of weapon from a merchant, Blacksmith, cleric or mage. It also depends on what class level you are in that specific weapon type so if you don't have class 3 in greatswords and you transmute it you won't be able to use the weapon.

                            • Vampire Killer19 May 2016 10:53  

                              Well I know there will definitely be legal issues if they do it like this, but I really want a whip named Vampire Killer appearing in the game.<br/><br/>This is the legacy of a legendary knight. Once being the most valiant champion of that time, he abandoned his title, threw away all his glory, only to save his fiancee from devil`s hand. After challenging thousands of monsters all by his own, he mournfully found out that it was his best friend, who managed to gain cursed immortality and became a great vampire, planned the kidnapping and infected her with vampiric blood. With tears, the knight ended the life of his beloved and forged this epic weapon with her blood. His wrath ignited the whip, making it extremely lethal to all evil beings. He voted that himself and his heirs would be hunting the betrayer forever.<br/>[Press Triangle to shoot fireball from the whip]

                                the bone crusher as far as i can tell is a very good weapon and does monster es amounts of damage the only problem so far is its attack speed which can be a problem.

                                  Not quite sure where to put this, but I would like to help with editing the values for the weapons/armor, and helping with item locations. Do I just comment the changes into the respective pages, or am I allowed to directly edit the page?<br/><br/>I just don't want to accidentally do something I'm not supposed to do because I wanted to help out.

                                    I'm finding the scaling in this game to be lackluster. Most of the weapons the have S scaling tend to be total crap with a low attack rating (ex: pitchfork). Is there something I'm missing? Or should I just continue going for the stuff that has the best numbers?

                                      Sometime weapons have a special to them. Some are obvious like fast or slow hitting. But what do the others do like extra blades on the morning star or slide on one of the Poleaxes?
