Overview

Great Swords are a type of two-handed weapon which are used by many Dark Knights, Rune Fencers, Warriors, and some Paladins. Released with the Seekers of Adoulin expansion, the Rune Fencer job is the first job which enjoys Great Swords as their highest weapon rank. Prior to this job's release no job had Great Sword as its highest weapon rank, but many still used Great Swords for a variety of reasons.

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.
