Overview

Katana are single-handed, low-delay, low-to-average damage weapons wielded exclusively by Ninja. Generally, a katana will do more damage than a dagger, but hit more often than a sword. Some katana include stat boosts, everything from stats to increase the damage of ninjutsu magic, to the Ninja's attacking power, to their defensive strength. One katana even offers a bonus to cooking skill.

Katana come into the spotlight once their user begins to get stronger forms of the Dual Wield trait - since katana already have low delay and good damage considering their delay, when as much as 40% of the delay of the weapons gets removed, the Ninja's damage-over-time tends to reach very high levels.
