How Good is Meteoric Ore Blade?

The Meteoric Ore Blade is undoubtedly effective at dealing physical damage but when other options such as Moonveil and Uchigatana are available, it can be difficult to decide which to choose.

Meteoric Ore Blade provides stagger, combos, hitting through walls, and hyper armor for 13 FP. They are all good, but most of them are useless against bosses. However, this does not preclude you from using the Meteoric Ore Blade. This is entirely dependent on your build.

If you have a build that favors Strength and Intelligence, the Meteoric Ore Blade is an obvious choice because it scales well with them. Moonveil and Uchigatana, on the other hand, are better choices if you lean more towards dexterity.

It is also worth noting that Moonveil and Meteoric are weapons that complement the playstyle of a battle mage.
