There are three Gargoyles that use a Crossbow in 3-2. Their locations are:

  1. the midpoint of the walkway that leads to the first chain tower (near where the Flamberge is on the map)
  2. to the right of the start of the walkway that leads to the second chain tower (point 11 on the map)
  3. the midpoint of the walkway joining the lower part of the fallen heart tower (near point 18 on the map)

A Dragon Halberd and a good Bow are ideal for farming the Gargoyles. Make sure that when you kill a Gargoyle, its corpse will be accessible when it falls.

Name: Names displayed are according to the Atlus (NA) version of the game. Name changes from the Asian version, if any, will appear in parentheses.

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a bow or crossbow are X/Y:

  • X is Physical Damage
  • Y is Magical Damage

Damage is further modified by the types of arrows or bolts used.

Range: The Range determines the maximum distance an arrow or bolt can be fired. Damage will decrease proportionately with the Range stat the further the arrow/bolt travels.
Durability: The durability of the weapon. The effectiveness of the weapon will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
Weight: The weight of the weapon. Note that carrying over 50% of your Equip Weight will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.

The Requirements determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The Requirement stats for an weapon are W/X/Y/Z:

  • W is the Strength required
  • X is the Dexterity required
  • Y is the Magic required
  • Z is the Faith required

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the Magic damage of the weapon.

Also keep in mind that your character gains a 50% bonus to Strength by wielding a weapon with both hands, thus reducing the actual Strength required. For example, a character with 18 Strength can wield a Great Axe (Requires 26 Strength) properly if she holds the weapon with both hands (18 x 1.5 = 27).

Stat Bonuses: The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus you receive based on the associated Stat when you use a weapon. This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill).
