Overview

Great Swords are a type of two-handed weapon which no job has for its highest weapon rank, but are nevertheless used by many Dark Knights, Warriors, and some Paladins.

Generally speaking, great swords have average delay and damage for two-handed weapons, but their true potential is in their weapon skills. Great sword weapon skills are highly skillchain-friendly, especially for Dark Knights who sometimes have a hard time skillchaining with their Scythes. Because great sword weapon skills are primarily physical damage and single-hit, they are often much more reliable in their damage output than multi-hit weapon skills and also benefit the most from powerful single-hit job abilities such as Sneak Attack and Boost.
