What do people like about spirit weapons?
A lot of people have fondness of spirit weapons that I don't really get. People have been asking for a spirit weapon update for years, and I even recall some people complaining about how the Erg system stepped on the proverbial toes of spirit weapons back when Erg weapons first came out in Korea. It seems that many people strongly feel that spirit weapons should be better than special-upgraded weapons, but I feel like I'm missing something here.
Unless I'm missing something the differences between them and regular weapons have always been:
1. More damage than regular weapons
2. Item feeding for growth/maintenance
3. Spirit weapon awakening
4. Different repair system
5. A single character portrait
6. Unable to use some upgrades which are available to other weapons
Was any of this actually fun though? 1 and 6 basically cancel each other out; 2 felt to me like an inconvenience; 3 was basically always irrelevant; 4 was another inconvenience (though this really depends on which weapon you have) and 5 never really felt like anything worth caring about.
This probably seems like a bunch of complaining, but I thought I'd start by explaining my understanding of spirit weapons before asking the main question; why do people like these things and want them to be good?
