You can Buy Metal Bat at Panthera Sports Kingdom in World Market Village in Like a dragon: Endless wealth. This is the small, mall-like area where the Alo-Happy Tours office is located, on the east side of Honolulu. In fact, the Panthera Sports Kingdom is located right next door.

You can buy Metal Bat there, right from Chapter Three, for $500Probably a lot if you just started playing the game.

What does Metal Bat do in Like a dragon: Endless wealth?

To be honest, nothing special. Metal Bat itself is a very basic three-star weapon, dealing 42 damage and 38 magic damage. Sure, you can upgrade weapons to deal more damage, but I wouldn’t bother.

What you can do is Craft Metal Bats into Barbed Wire Bats, increases the damage to 58 Attack and 53 Magic and causes it to sometimes cause Bleed. In the early game, this is not a bad choice at all. However, there is one more secret about Metal Bat.

The big secret about Metal Bat in Like a dragon: Endless wealth

The big secret about Metal Bat is you it can be upgraded to the (second) best weapon in the game for Ichiban. That’s right, this $500 low-level weapon can become one of the most powerful weapons in the game by a huge margin 196 attack, 184 magic, and even the ability to occasionally cause Poisoning and Blindness. I’m talking about Egesta at last. The more you look at this weapon, the more disgusted you become, so I advise you not to examine it for too long.

So what’s the catch? There are actually several of them.

  • You have to have Julie’s workshop is upgraded to level four (very expensive at the beginning of the game)
  • You have to have 140,000 USD for upgrades
  • The most important thing is that you need to have 100 pure thirst for upgrade materials

You can crush the first two in a variety of ways, but Ethereal Egesta is really difficult to farm. Sometimes you can get this item by finding it in a trash can or toilet (yes, I’m not kidding; it’s disgusting even in a video game). Additionally, one of the best places to farm this material is inside a dungeon, but even then, it’s not guaranteed. I actually managed to complete the entire game and only had 15 Ethereal Egesta, even completing the side content.

My advice: Don’t bother making Ultima Egesta. Instead, wait until the end of the game and craft the best weapon for Ichiban (which is also the best weapon in the game), The staff of a truly legendary hero. Sure, you can grind Ethereal Egesta from toilets and trash cans but you don’t need such a powerful weapon early in the game.
