Braver weapon later levels?

Saika or Yami? I’m not sure what the differences would be. I’ve got a Nox Seph right now but will more than likely be upgrading sooner rather than later. Which is the better of the two? Does it even matter?

Between those two, Saika is the more unconditional one (8% damage for keeping Perfect Attack timing), but it is weaker. Both of Yamigarasu's Potentials require a bit more upkeep, though they give you a better damage multiplier (Wings of Twilight: 14% for Prefect Attacking in PA combos; Garland Guard: 15% for Perfect Guarding 3 times and not taking damage outside of a Perfect Guard).

Hmm I see. That’s a lot of information to unpack a bit. Is there a different option out there? Idk these are the ones I feel like I’ve seen mentioned once or twice so I figured I’d ask.

@Secramor The other two 13☆ Katana are Yasha and Aura Zanshou. Yasha has a 17% multiplier, but only when your HP is under 25% of its max; Aura Zanshou has a 12% multiplier, but only against minibosses and bosses.
