Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Edit

An axe engraved with ancient writings. It is said to increase the ability to focus for its bearer. There are currently still scholars who study and understand these writings. However, it has been found that simply writing these characters produces no effect. Nowadays, only a tiny portion of shaman are capable of engraving these words to the same effect, making this axe incredibly rare.
