Improves critical hit rate.



First game

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

The Shamshir is a sword-type weapon exclusive to Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. It is basically the Magvel-specific equivalent to the then-Elibe-specific Wo Dao--an alternative to the Killing Edge with a lower weapon level and an even higher critical rate, albeit with a restricted userbase. The restricted userbase here is myrmidons, swordmasters, assassins, Eirika, melee bonewalkers, and melee wights.
