Best Final Fantasy 7 Remake Sword Upgrades

  • Attack Power
    • When it comes to covering weaknesses, putting SP into Attack Power is a good idea, as if you can finish a fight in fewer blows, the less time the enemy has to fight back. With most enemies being susceptible to powerful sword attacks, you can’t really go wrong with Attack Power.
  • Magic
    • Magic is huge in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, with some late-game spells making the endgame much easier to manage. In addition to Attack Power, you’ll be wanting to invest SP into everything Magic, including Magic Attack Power.
    • Remember, the more you use magic, the better it gets, so keep using spells in battle and continuing to evolve them. It’s a snowball effect that will lead to some massively powerful magic attacks.

If you’re struggling to survive fights, you can also invest SP into increasing your HP and other defensive perks. However, it’s also worth considering lowering the difficulty to help you instead.
