Izuna : The Legend Of The Ninja
Upgrade your weapons
Once you get to the Fire God's dungeon, you can continue to upgrade your weapons without stopping. Simply fight inside the Fire God's dungeon and find several burn-in orbs. Fill up your weapon with Zoufuku Talismans (increases the SP capacity of your weapon; the Zantetsu sword that ignores defense is recommended), then burn them in with the burn-in flame. Your increased SP capacity will remain on the weapon. After that, keep filling your sword with Rekka for attack, Mikagami for defense, Kaishin for critical hits, and Mikiri for evasion. Keep burning them in and switching to Zoufuku for more SP, and your sword will have incredible stats by the time you finish. Be sure to keep an un-burned Kikan talisman stuck to it, just in case you actually are defeated.
