Weapon Customization/Leveling Up

           If you've played Dark Cloud 1 (and remember it) you'll notice the Weapon Customization in this game is slightly different than its predecessor. In order to upgrade a weapon you'll usually need to raise its stats before getting the "Build Up" option to become available. You can Spectrumize Crystals to increase your weapons potential, other weapons (that have +5 or greater) or gems which are pretty rare finds from dungeons and can be purchased later in the game during the final Chapter.

           In order to Spectrumize a weapon and have it still be useful as aforementioned you'll need to make certain it has at least a +5 or greater level. You won't gain the full benefit of each weapon you spectrumize, only some of the stats will be carried over. It's also worth mentioning that when you spectrumize a weapon if it has any bonuses attached to it, they'll carry over onto the new weapon. Example, you could spectrumize a weapon with 'Wealth' on it and slap that on a different weapon, having it carry the 'Wealth' effect with it.

Heavy Hammer

           Being able to carry over the special attributes of each weapon is really awesome considering it means you could load up Max's weapons with every bonus there is. To toss it out there, I strongly recommend you focus on Max's weapons more than Monica's since Monica is unavailable for Chapter 8, which one could call 'bonus content'.

           The last thing I feel I need to talk about with Weapon Upgrading in this game is that certain weapons require you to kill monsters before being able to upgrade them. These monsters start appearing usually in Chapter 6 but most of them appear in Chapter 7, in the Moon Flower Palace dungeon.

Weapon Build Up

           Below you can find a list of all the monsters required for upgrading all the different weapons in Dark Cloud 2. They are sorted by dungeon which should make things easier for you. Keep in mind that these mobs won't be in the regular route in the dungeons. The ones in Rainbow Butterfly Woods/Ocean's Roar Cave, Starlight Canyon and Mount Gundor are all found in the part of the dungeon that unlocks during Chapter 6 once you have the Star Key.
