I was watching some FE6 videos a few days ago and I started thinking: Should Legendary Weapons even have uses?

They're the arms of ancient heroes, forged to kill dragons, demons, and gods! If they break and disappear forever after 40 or so attacks, doesn't that undermine their significance in the game's lore?

They've aged considerably over a thousand years sealed away with no maintenance, that they still have uses is a testament to their power. Besides, giving the player an infinite-use 22 Mt sword with dragon-killing properties in Chapter 8x would undermine the game's balance.

Ahh...the old "Guess that what happens when your ultimate weapon is 3000 years old" joke, classic. And yes, that would be unbalancing (and kind of hilarious).

As for game balance, what about having Legend Weapons grow stronger over time? They start off weak, but grow stronger or gain new properties and abilities as you progress in the story or by completing special paralogues. Kind of like how the Falchion from Awakening becomes the Exalted Falchion after you complete Chapter 24.

Pretty much how weapons are in FE4, more kill count more power
