On the other tentacle, Mr. Larsen may have been asking if the Moon had 4 weapons symbolizing her conquest of the other elements. The lunar armies certainly use combined arms, and some of the lunar goddesses have multiple arms with multiple, different weapons in them, so if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say "yes, the moon does have magic weapons that symbolize her conquest of the younger elements."
