Episode 7: Weapon Proficiency
So, when you play a Disgaea game...the humanoid job classes (and humanoid main characters) have a wide variety of weapons they can use. But when you look at their stats when you equip weapons, you'll find that each character/job class will have about two top weapons they are most proficient (better stats, etc.) with. You can equip them with anything...........but if they have an "A" next to a weapon-type, they're best at using that particular weapon-type.
For example, Fenrich of "Disgaea 4" is primarily a Fist-weapon user--it's the default weapon he comes with. But looking at his weapon stat screen, you'll find that he also has an "A" next to Axes--which means he can be a pretty awesome Axe-user as well. Whatever you equip a humanoid character with, they'll grow in proficiency with any weapon over time--but they'll grow faster with a weapon-type they're good at.
So................because I want this game to last forever and I'm not ready to take on the final boss and end the game. I reincarnated pretty much everyone and equipped all the humanoid characters with their second-best type of weapon. I find it highly amusing that a Cleric (male Healer) has Spear as his second-best type....................Disgaea Healers tend to have Gun or Bow (a long-range weapon) as their second best-type. chuckle
