For a sortable list of all available magic weapons, along with their stats for comparison, see List of magic weapons.

Magic weapons are weapons which are used in medium- to long-ranged combat. The defining trait of magic weapons is their consumption of mana upon every use.

Due to their unusual and unique forms of attack, the majority of magic weapons can hardly be categorized into different types. Note that summon weapons, which also consume mana, are not considered magic weapons due to the secondary character they spawn and their inability to inflict direct damage.

The following lists present all magic weapons along with their damage and how to acquire them. The intention of this is to convey an idea of their strength and the approximate time during gameplay at which they can be obtained. For a sortable list that displays all statistics of all magic weapons, see List of magic weapons.
