Best Tonfa Build
Focus on Courage
Focus on leveling up Courage as it scales the most with the Tonfas. Leveling up Body is effective as well since it also increases damage, and because Tonfa is compatible with Light Armor.
Balanced Stats for Early Game
The status increase between level 5 to level 10 is large compared to other levels for all stats. Therefore, it’s better to balance out your stats rather than focusing on just one stat in the early game.
Best Build for Tonfa
Focus on Courage as it scales the most with the Tonfa’s damage output. Body and Skill are for wearing Light Armor, and Dexterity for using Ninjutsu.
