But even if you see it as a symbolic weapon that represents your journey (I agree that it's symbolic, don't get me wrong), to all intents and purposes it's also the final tier melee class weapon. It's a sword crafted from other swords, it's the strongest weapon in the game, and deals melee damage.Zenith shouldn't be seen as the final tier "melee class" weapon. It's more symbolic than any other weapon in the game. The melee tag makes sense, because of it's components. The Zenith has no magic, ranged, or summoner weapons, so adding those damage types doesn't really fit with the theme of the weapon. But the Zenith being melee is nothing more than that, a product of it's components.
So you have to understand that people like me who don't like playing as melee characters have mixed feelings about the Zenith. It just feels like being left out (It's also less symbolic if you play e.g. as a mage and have to collect swords you'd have never used on your journey if you want to craft the final item).
