This tier list guide will provide you with the best weapons in Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous, in terms of damage, range, and special abilities. All the weapons listed below are of different types, so it will be easier for you to find the one that fits your particular character build the most.

S-Tier Weapons

Blood Red Cleaver

  • Type: Greatsword
  • Proficiency: Martial
  • Damage: 2d6 (Slashing)

This isn’t the heaviest greatsword in the game at only 8lbs, but its damage is unquestionably brutal. On top of that, it deals an extra 6d6 slashing damage to any enemy whose HP drops below 30%, guaranteeing a quick and devastating kill.

This is a perfect weapon for almost any Barbarian, Fighter, or Paladin class build. The other two equally good alternatives are:

  • Remnant
  • Endless War

Terrifying Tremble

  • Type: Earth Breaker
  • Proficiency: Martial
  • Damage: 2d6 (Bludgeoning)

In case you’re specifically looking for a really heavy weapon, then this is the right one for you at 14lbs. When this weapon hits, it emits an ultrasound that deals extra damage to all other enemies within its range that is equal to your character’s Athletics rank.

This monstrous weapon can only be compared to Obliteration, which is a good alternative for Terrifying Tremble.

A-Tier Weapons

Decay Spreader

  • Type: Sling Staff
  • Proficiency: Exotic
  • Damage: 1d8 (Bludgeoning)

Decay Spreader has the highest range in the game of up to 50 feet. But also consider the damage rolls on this incredible staff that gains +2 bonus for each dead enemy within its range.

That could quickly accumulate to a massive amount of damage, where each enemy gets killed faster than the previous one.

There are only a few other good alternatives to this weapon, such as:

  • Oak of Thunder
  • Flame’s Hatred
  • Flame’s Cleansing
  • Flame’s Will


  • Type: Heavy Crossbow
  • Proficiency: Simple
  • Damage: 1d10 (Piercing)

Although this is a simple crossbow, it has an incredible range of damage bonuses that is applied to enemies with the following traits:

  • Huge or Gargantuan size
  • Dragon or Giant subtype
  • 20 or more HD

If an enemy has one of the these, then they will receive an extra 1d10 piercing damage and -2 penalty on all their attack rolls.

There are a few other crossbows that are quite good, but Mythslayer is still the best one among:

  • Rolling Thunder
  • Rude Stopper
  • Heartbreaker

Hunter’s Blessing

  • Type: Longbow
  • Proficiency: Martial
  • Damage: 1d8 (Piercing)

Longbows are primarily made for characters that value Dexterity, and Hunter’s Blessing is currently one of the best weapons for ranged Dexterity-based builds in the game due to its +4 Dexterity bonus.

Other exciting choices in the same category are:

  • Elemental Punisher
  • Watchman
  • Mirror Bow
  • Gamekeeper of the First World
  • Longbow of Leeching Strike
  • Killing Pace

B-Tier Weapons


  • Type: Scythe
  • Proficiency: Martial
  • Damage: 2d4 (Slashing)

Scythes are known for their high critical damage and some unique bonuses, but they are not easy to wield.

Riftcarver is an unholy weapon that has the ability to summon a pack of demons to aid your character in a battle. Also, once a day you can use it to create a rift between the worlds that swallows all enemies within a 60ft radius.

If you enjoy weapons like this, then also consider:

  • Annihilator
  • Gluttonous Scythe

Spiteful Mockery

  • Type: Heavy Pick
  • Proficiency: Martial
  • Damage: 1d6 (Piercing)

This is another unholy weapon designed for Witches. It may not have that high of a damage, but if you achieve the 20th level as a Wizard, you’ll be able to cast the Prediction of Failure spell once a day with this heavy pick.

Prediction of Failure is one of the most devastating spells in the game. But if you’re more interested in higher damage, then choose Dreadful Onslaught instead.

Crushing Burden

  • Type: Gnome Hooked Hammer
  • Proficiency: Exotic
  • Damage: 1d8/1d6 (Piercing)

Besides having a pretty significant critical hit damage, this exotic hammer deals Fatigued and Exhausted status effects on enemies.

In order to achieve this you need to hit en enemy three and six times in a row respectively.

If you’re dealing with multiple enemies at a time, you can hit one of them three times, make it Fatigued, and then switch to others achieving the same effect, thus quickly gaining advantage over all of them.
