AnalysisEdit

Because of the power of the equipment forged from it, Orihalcon is a desirable and practical item that many players seek multiple copies of. From it can be forged Excalibur, which is the second best weapon in the game because it can triple the user's damage output. On average, the Sol Blade will deal more damage than Excalibur, but only one Sol Blade can be acquired so multiple copies of Excalibur are desirable for the three remaining warrior-style Adepts. An Orihalcon can also yield the Cosmos Shield, which is the best hand-armor available because of its defense and resistance boosts. The 40-point Mars-power boost of the other hand-mounted armour, the Big Bang Gloves, is a great asset to any Adept using Mars-aligned abilities, and the Nebula Wand's PP restoration and Mercury-alignment make it arguably the best weapon for Mia to equip. The Millenium Helm and Xylion Armor are strong defensive items with big statistical buffs. Orihalcon's only item that is undesirable is the Stellar Axe, because though it is powerful in its own right, it is inferior in every way to Excalibur.

Cultural AllusionsEdit

The material "Orichalcum" is a brass/gold-like metal mentioned in several ancient texts, such as Plato's account of the mythological civilization of Atlantis.
