Final Fantasy XII is interesting as it's one of the few games in the series where the entire cast has access to all weaponry. Assuming you had to give the cast up to three weapon types they could use, what would they be?

Here's my picks...

Vaan - Swords, Bows, Staves
Ashe - Maces, Swords, Rods
Balthier - Guns, Daggers, Spears
Fran - Spears, Bows, Axes & Hammers
Basch - Axes & Hammers, Greatswords, Swords
Penelo - Daggers, Poles, Crossbows

Fran - Bows, spears, crossbows
Basch - Greatswords, axes and hammers, bare-handed
Penelo - Rods, staves, and crossbows

Tough one. I'd agree largely with what you two have:

Vaan - Swords, Daggers,
Balthier - Guns, Spears, Poles
Fran - Bows, Bare-handed, Axes & Hammers
Basch - Greatswords, Swords, Axes & Hammers
Ashe - Swords, Bombs, Maces
Penelo - Staves, Rods, Bare-handed (she was taught martial arts by her brothers, the manual tells me)

I see no one's assigning measures to anyone.

No one's tempted by the Compass of DOOOM

The worst weapon type I think I've ever seen in a game.

No, but I mean, who's gonna be the interior decorator in your party? You honestly can't expect them to do any real remodelling without the right tools!

Doesn't Ashe have like, an army of royal servants for that job?

Technically she's pronounced dead at the start of the game, so

I was thinking more the end of the game, but fair enough. I'm still confused as to why an interior designer is an important job role in the party.

You just gotta be prepared.

Well if we're in need of an interior designer, how about a fashion designer? Vaan is committing oh so many crimes of fashion. Balthier really raises the average up, to be honest.

Basch with his pot holders and Vagrant Story-esque assless chaps.

... and we've derailed the thread already. Behave, Formy :p

You started it! What with your talk of interior design. You're one to talk: Bowser appears to be wearing a very outmoded wallpaper!

Also, is Bowser really using those glasses for vision correction? Is he going through his hipster phase?

I always thought it was more of a dad look.
