The Eight-fluted Pole is a pole in Final Fantasy XII. In the original version its license costs 45 LP. In the Zodiac versions its license costs 60 LP and it can be used by the Monk.





Fluted poles find their origins in Japanese Bo staves. Bo staves of the more antiquated variety were carved in various facings, and had models up to at least an octagonal shape. Such poles were effective in battle, as through the wedging provided, their angles increased the weapon's hitting power. Some were reinforced with metal plates to prevent blades from cutting down the pole, which also augmented the pole's capabilities and strength.
