Weakness is what describes a monster's and/or player's vulnerabilities in combat. Whatever a monster's weakness is, is the best possible style of combat with which to approach the fight. If a monster is weak to a particular style, that style will be more effective than other styles. However, every other style of the same class is also effective. A monster's weakness can be discovered by looking at the combat interface; its weakness will be displayed next to its name.


When fighting a monster that has a weakness, a multiplier is applied to your accuracy which influences your hit chance against it.

It is unknown what applies to targets without a weakness, but they appear to have a neutral weakness (a 0.5 multiplier).

Weakness Multiplier
Strong 0.45
Same 0.55
Weak 0.65
Weakest 0.9
