You know the diamond sword, right? Well, it's worth such a fortune that they have to wrap it in a bundle of feathers for sale so it don't scratch none. Of course, it's hard to imagine anything that would mar that blade. Why, if it did nick, I'd have to say it was a fake.

The "+" versions have the same stats as their counterparts, but have a level requirement of level 36 instead of level 50. When any of the three pieces are equipped at one time, the character activates the Dazzling Diamond combination, doubling the amount of AP they earn. All of the equipment pieces can be acquired by trading Diamonds in at the shop.
