Sun Haven – Best Swords And Crossbows

Sun Haven is a magical life sim and RPG. While most of your days will be spent making friends, mining and growing crops sometimes it’ll be spent in battle. Combat is unavoidable in Sun Haven, you’ll need to defeat enemies to gather materials and progress through the story. Most of these enemies aren’t too hard but sometimes you’ll have to go up against a dragon or some other big beastie. Then you’re going to need a powerful weapon.

In Sun Haven there’s a wide variety of weapons and unsurprisingly most of them are gotten late in the game. In this guide, we’ll show you the best, as well as how and where to get them.

Disclaimer: Sun Haven is still in Early Access and as such this information is subject to change. We’ll be adding more to this guide as the game updates.


Weapons In Sun Haven

There are two different types of weapons that you’ll have access to, Swords and Crossbows. Swords are useful for melee attacks and Crossbows for range.

The Swords can attack in an arc in the direction you choose. With an attack that can hit multiple enemies at once. However, because it is a melee weapon you will have to get fairly close to the enemies. Which may not be your play style, or it may not be possible at that time.

This is where Crossbows come in. Crossbows are good for those ranged players. You can knock out an enemy before they even get close to you. But it is worth noting that a Crossbow does less damage than a Sword. So it’s up to you to decide which weapon you like best.


Sun Haven – Best Swords

Mithril Sword

Required Level: Combat 30Damage: 26-34
Attack Speed: 14
Recipe: 11x Mithril BarCraft Time: 16 hrs

First on our list is the Mithril Sword. You can craft it mid-game once you start mining Mithril Ore in the Sun Haven Mines. For a mid-game weapon, it does a decent amount of damage and has a good attack speed. It’s an extremely balanced weapon and you should be using it for a good amount of time.

Sunite Sword

Required Level: Combat 40Damage: 42-50
Attack Speed: 15
Recipe: 11x Sunite BarCraft Time: 16 hrs

The Mithril Sword pales in comparison to the next Sword on our list. The Sunite Sword is, without a doubt, one of the strongest swords in Sun Haven. To craft it, you will need 11 Sunite Bars which you can get from Level 41 and onwards in the Sun Haven Mines. However, just crafting this Sword is not enough. You must also reach Combat level 40 to use it. But by the time you get here, almost nothing can stand in your way!

Glorite Sword

Required Level: Combat 40Damage: 50-60
Attack Speed: 16
Recipe: 12x Glorite BarCraft Time: 24 hrs

The Glorite Sword is the strongest weapon in Sun Haven. And just like the other two swords you can obtain it by crafting it from Glorite Bars. You can mine Glorite in the Withergate Mines. However, you can also acquire this sword by fighting Dynus. Defeat him, and you will be able to get the Glorite Sword as a bonus reward.

The Glorite Sword surpasses the Sunite Sword in both attack speed and combat damage. This will be the last Sword you’ll ever need in Sun Haven.


Sun Haven – Best Crossbow

Elven Crossbow

Required Level: Combat 20Damage: 11-13
Attack Speed: 18Seller: Rel’Tar
Buy Price: 800 Mana OrbsSell Price: 200 Mana Orbs

Crossbows are rather untypical weapons for elves, but in the world of Sun Haven, they seem to prefer them over Bows. Elven Crossbow is a good ranged weapon you can buy from Rel’Tar once you earn 800 Mana Orbs. This Crossbow can deal 11 -13 damage. Moreover, Elven Crossbow is the fastest in the game.

Mithril Crossbow

Required Level: Combat 30Damage: 22-24
Attack Speed: 13Seller: Weapon Merchant | Rel’Tar
Buy Price: 20,000gSell Price: 1,000g

The Mithril Crossbow is one of the best weapons in Sun Haven. Although it is much slower than Elven Crossbow it makes up for it with higher damage. Make sure to enhance this weapon by investing skill points into skills, such as Hot Shot, which replaces regular Bolts with Burning Bolts. Amp it up and like the Mithril Sword you’ll be using this one for a while.

Rel’Tar’s Mark

Required Level: Combat 40Damage: 28-30
Attack Speed: 15Seller: Rel’Tar
Buy Price: 1,500 Mana OrbsSell Price: 400 Mana Orbs

Rel’Tar’s Mark is the most powerful Crossbow in Sun Haven. While it does fire a bit faster than the Mithril Crossbow it’s still a fairly slower weapon. Just like the other Crossbows, you’ll need to purchase this one from Rel’Tar. This is quite a costly weapon but it’s the best one to have if you’re a Crossbow user.
