    Smash Favorite Final Fantasy Weapon Type

    Which FF weapon type do you like the best? Do you have an Axe to grind? Or are you a sharpshooter w/ the Bow & the Arrows? Or do you take a slice out of life w/ Ninja Swords?

    I tend to go with swords as I always liked the fighter types in these games. Though I can appreciate a good staff if used as an item for last second heroics.

    Greatswords, definitely. I can't bring myself to go without a Knight in IZJS just because it means missing out on the best of them.

    What's the difference between rods and staves? They look the same.

    Rods are usually one handed and for Black Magic and Staves are usually two handed for White Magic.

    I think you have it backwards Vivi uses Staves while Garnet uses Rods. I don't know about the one handed thing. I've never seen either job that uses them allow you to use shields like you can with broadswords or spears.

    Ultima Weapon and Excalibur are always known to be the best. While Katanas have an excellent combo rate they rarely enable combos in Final Fantasy games. In a single attack Excalibur wins with it's also trade mark of auto-haste and holy elemental.

    Another great damage dealing is Lances. These weapons compare to damage and status boosts as well. Paired with Jump and these weapons can easily hit max damage. One some occasions the spear is greater then the sword but not always.

    I still have to go with Great Swords though cause of basic damage.

    I chose swords as that could be any sword. It's just very satisfying hacking at your enemies and that lovely sound it makes.

    Obviously this is just in relation to Final Fantasy and not real life.
