So, what weapon should I be upgrading for, say, Lightning?
Is it the Gladius? Or is there a better one?
The Gladius is the best approach if you're going into a more offensive role with Lightning, but it has a too high EXP cost.
I levelled the BlazeFire Gun, which was simpler and faster to get to the required level (26) to get to Tier 2.
