The following is a list of the weapons in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

Most melee weapons have a chance of performing a random hit combo, while ranged weapons and measures can deal critical hits. Some weapons cannot do either. Some weapons can knockback opponents while others cannot. Some weapons have an elemental affinity, which lets the wielder deal +50% the normal damage with attacks related to the element. Certain weapons can inflict opponents with statuses on hit. Different weapon types vary in charge and action time. Characters perform a different victory pose after a boss battle depending on which weapon they finished the battle equipping.

Several new weapons were added to the International Zodiac Job System version compared to the original release, and carried over to The Zodiac Age. Many are higher grade versions of previous weapons, and in the Japanese version are denoted by a letter at the end of their name. They look identical to their original counterparts, but have higher attack power, and many have added effects.

The Shikari Nagasa and Mina were added to replace the Danjuro from the original version, and now have different requirements for obtaining, as well as different stats from the Danjuro. Two weapons, Great Trango and Seitengrat, were added in as new ultimate weapons, and have the highest stats. They are invisible when equipped.

Damage formula Edit

Weapons use various calculations to determine damage. The calculation used is usually determined by the weapon category, however, there are some exceptions.

Strength formula

Used by swords, greatswords, spears, and crossbows. Damage is reduced by target's Defense, and increased by user's Strength.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it AttackPower} \times {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) - {\it Defense}] \times [1 + {\it Strength} \times \frac{{\it Lv}+{\it Strength}}{256}] $
Magick Power formula

Used by katana and staves. Damage is reduced by target's Defense, and increased by user's Strength and Magick Power.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) -{\it Defense}] * [1 + {\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Magick Power})/256] $
Vitality formula

Used by axes, hammers, and hand-bombs. Damage is reduced by target's Defense, increased by user's Strength, Level, and Vitality, and varies more greatly from randomness.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(0\sim 1.111) -{\it Defense}] * [1 + {\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Vitality})/128] $
Speed formula

Used by daggers, ninja swords, and bows. Damage is reduced by target's Defense, and increased by user's Strength and Speed.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) -{\it Defense}] * [1 + {\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Speed})/218] $
Pierce formula

Used by measures and guns. Damage is not modified by target's Defense, and varies more greatly from randomness. Unlike other formulas this is not modified by the user's level.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125)]^2 $
Mace formula

Used primarily by maces. Damage is reduced by target's Defense, and increased by user's Magick Power.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) - {\it Defense}] * [1 +{\it Magick POWER} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Magick Power})/256] $
Pole formula

Used primarily by poles. Damage is reduced by Magick Defense, and increased by user's Strength.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it Attack Power} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) - {\it Magick Defense}] * [1 + {\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Strength})/256] $
Unarmed formula

Used when unarmed. This formula is the same as the regular Strength formula, however it doesn't add 1 to the Strength stat.

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it AttackPower} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) - {\it Defense}] * [{\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Strength})/256] $

If the user has the Brawler augment (through either the Brawler license or with the Amber Armlet), the Attack Power is instead calculated $ ({\it Lv}+{\it Strength})/2 $.

Unequipped Edit

When unequipped, players attack with "Unarmed". Unarmed uses its own formula similar to the Strength formula, but without a +1 boost. Unarmed has a smaller Attack Power than the weapons that use the Strength formula, making it an undesirable choice. If the player has the Brawler ability (from the Brawler license or the Amber Armlet) then instead of using the Weapon's attack stat it uses $ ({\it Lv}+{\it Strength})/2 $.

One-handed weapons Edit

FFXII One-Handed Weapons Menu Icon

One-handed weapons are the most plentiful type of weapon. Using a one-handed weapon allows the wielder to equip a shield with their other hand, giving them more evasion.

Swords Edit

FFXII Swords Icon

Swords offer a balanced mix of speed, consistency, and power. Damage is calculated based on the character's strength, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. All swords, except for the Stoneblade, add 5 to evasion. Swords can knockback enemies.

Swords' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Strength)/256] $

The Knight can equip every sword, and the Time Battlemage and the Bushi can equip high level swords, and the Blood Sword, respectively; if they invest in Espers on the License Board.

Daggers Edit

FFXII Dagger Icon

Daggers deal less damage as swords, but make up for it in speed. Many also have useful additional effects. Damage is calculated based on the character's strength and speed, and the enemy's defense. Daggers add 5 Evasion, except the Main Gauche, which adds 34 Evasion. Daggers are the fastest weapons, with the least charge time to perform an attack. Daggers cannot knockback enemies.

Daggers' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [[Attack Power * Random(1~1.125)]-Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Speed)/218] $

The Shikari can equip every dagger, and the White Mage job can equip the Orichalcum Dirk and the Platinum Dagger if they buy the Famfrit license.

Axes and hammers Edit

Axes and hammers offer a huge boost to attack at the expense of consistency, as the damage depends on a random variable. Damage is calculated based on the character's strength and vitality, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Axes attack slightly faster than hammers and both can knockback enemies.

Axes and hammers' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(0~1.111) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Vitality)/128] $

Only the Foebreaker can equip them.

Maces Edit

FFXII Mace Icon

Damage is calculated based on the weapon's attack, the enemy's defense, and the character's magick power, as opposed to the character's strength. Maces are recommended for magick-geared support characters. They cannot knockback enemies and have average attack speed.

Maces' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 +Magic * (Lv+Magick Power)/256] $

The Red Battlemage can equip maces.

Measures Edit

FFXII Measure Icon

Measures have low attack ratings, but ignore defense, damage being calculated solely on the weapon's attack. Measures cause beneficial status effects on hit, used to strengthen the party without using MP, and need to be switched out for conventional weapons if the character is to enter melee combat. Measures add 35 evasion, which, coupled with the ability to equip a shield, makes a character difficult to hit.

Measures are effective when attacking party members to remove the confuse status, since measures do not deal heavy damage yet can confer beneficial statuses. Unlike other melee weapons, measures can deal critical hits. Targets cannot parry or block measure attacks, but the wielder can still miss due to bad accuracy. Measures cannot knockback enemies and have the same speed as swords and hammers.

Measures' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1\sim 1.125)]^2 $

The Machinist can take advantage of these weapons to bestow consistent beneficial effects to allies without casting magick.

Two-handed weapons Edit

FFXII Two-Handed Weapon Menu Icon

Two-handed weapons do not allow the equipping of a shield, but do offer more damage than one-handed weapons, and sometimes even attack faster.

Greatswords Edit

FFXII Greatsword Icon

Greatswords are more difficult to come by than regular swords but deliver consistent heavy damage and should be equipped to the player's primary damage dealers. Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Greatswords can knockback enemies, apart from the Sword of Kings and the Treaty-Blade. In the Zodiac versions, greatswords' charge time is slower than regular swords' and are among the slowest weapons.

Greatswords' damage calculation:

$ {\it DMG} = [{\it AttackPower} * {\rm Random}(1\sim 1.125) - {\it Defense}] * [1 + {\it Strength} * ({\it Lv}+{\it Strength})/256] $

The Knight can equip every greatsword. The Red Battlemage can equip every greatsword besides the Excalibur, Excalipur and the Tournesol, albeit with the help of Espers. The White Mage can also unlock the first three greatswords with Esper assistance.

Katana Edit

FFXII Katana Icon

Katana have lower attack than greatswords, but make up for it with their higher chance of combo attacks. The player can take advantage of this by equipping the Genji Gloves, which boosts the rate of combo attacks.

Damage is calculated based on the weapon's attack, the enemy's defense, and the wielder's strength and magick power. The last factor allows even a magick-geared character to become a melee damage dealer when equipped with a katana. Katana cannot knockback enemies. Katana have average attacking speed and the fastest katana users are Balthier and Basch.

All katanas are two-handed weapons, with the exception of the Kumbha.

Katana's damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Magick Power)/256] $

Katana are equipped by the Bushi.

Ninja swords Edit

FFXII Ninja Sword Icon

Ninja swords are found as treasure or bought as Bazaar goods. They are used by the Shikari job; their damage is calculated based on the character's strength and speed, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Ninja swords have an even higher chance of combo attacks than katana, and are the second fastest weapons after daggers. Ninja swords add 20 to evasion. They cannot knockback enemies. Because their four licenses are behind Quickenings, and characters can only have three Quickenings, the Shikari player must forgo one of the licenses.

Because ninja swords' damage takes speed into consideration, ninja sword wielders benefit greatly from the Germinas Boots accessory. However, Strength is the largest factor in almost all of the damage formulas. The choice of second job affects Strength and Speed much more than characters' base stats.

Ninja blades are now stronger than in the original release, and their elemental properties have been tweaked. Koga Blade is now Earth-elemental, Iga Blade is now Water-elemental, and the Yagyu Darkblade stays Dark-elemental. In the original release, ninja swords caused Darkness damage and were thus useless against the common undead enemy type.

Ninja swords' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Speed)/218] $

Spears Edit

FFXII Spear Icon

Spears' damage is calculated based on the character's strength, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Spears add 8 to evasion. Spears can knockback enemies. Spears' speed is average.

Spears' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Strength)/256] $

Almost all mid to late-game spears are stronger compared to the original release, with the high level Gungnir, Dragon Whisker and Zodiac Spears now being able to inflict Disable as well. Spears are used by the Uhlan job.

Spears hit flying enemies in the Zodiac versions.

Poles Edit

FFXII Pole Icon

Like katana and ninja swords, poles are prone to combo attacks. The player can equip the Genji Gloves to maximize on poles' combo attack potential.

Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's magick defense, making it especially devastating to targets without the Shelled buff and enemies with low magick defense. Poles add 25 to evasion and can knockback enemies. Poles are among the fastest weapons behind daggers and ninja swords.

Poles' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) - Magick Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Strength)/256] $

Poles can be used by the Monk job. Poles hit flying enemies in the Zodiac versions.

Rods Edit

FFXII Rod Icon

Like maces, rods are well-suited to magick-geared characters since they increase the wielder's magick power. A couple of rods grant beneficial status effects on hit. Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Rods add 6 to evasion and never deal hit combos or critical hits. Rods can knockback enemies. Rods are among the slower weapons.

Rods' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Strength)/256] $

Rods are used by the White Mage job. In the Zodiac versions, rods can hit flying enemies.

Staves Edit

FFXII Staff Icon

Staves are well-suited to magick-geared characters as some boost elemental magick spells; for example, casting Blizzaga with a Glacial Staff will cause more damage than without it.

When used for physical attacks, damage is calculated based on the character's strength and magick power, the weapon's attack, and the enemy's defense. Staves add 8 to evasion and never deal hit combos or critical hits, but can knockback enemies. Staves are among the slower weapons.

Staves' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Magick Power)/256] $

Staves are used by Black Mages. They can hit flying enemies in the Zodiac versions.

Ranged weapons Edit

FFXII Ranged Weapon Menu Icon

Ranged weapons require ammunition; the player can't even equip the weapon if they have no ammo available. Ammunition comes in infinite stocks. Though ranged weapons usually take longer to use and do not allow the equipping of a shield, they allow characters to attack from a distance, suited for those with lower defense. Ranged weapons enable one to physically attack a flying enemy.

A party equipped with ranged weapons tends to spread out more during battle, causing an enemy's area attacks to likely hit fewer of the player's party members. This is especially helpful if the enemy can use third-level black magick or cast spells like Disable and Stop in an area. Instead of combos, ranged weapons can deal critical hits.

Bows Edit

FFXII Bow Icon

Enemies cannot counter bow and arrow attacks, but their accuracy is reduced by 20% in bad weather, like heavy rain and snow- and sandstorms.[1]

Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength and speed, the combined attack of the bow and arrow, and the enemy's defense. Bows do not offer an evasion bonus. Bows can knockback enemies. Bows are among the slowest weapons.

Bows can be used by the Archer.

Bows' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [[Attack Power * Random(1~1.125)]-Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Speed)/218] $

Crossbows Edit

FFXII Crossbow Icon

Enemies cannot parry or counter crossbow attacks, though the attacks have an increased chance of simply missing altogether.

Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength, the combined attack of the crossbow and bolt, and the enemy's defense. Crossbows are the fastest ranged weapons and add 5 to evasion. Their accuracy is halved in bad weather.[1] Crossbows cannot knockback enemies.

Crossbows' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Strength)/256] $

Crossbows are used by the Time Battlemage job.

Guns Edit

FFXII Gun Icon

Guns take almost twice as long to use as other weapons, but they make up for it by having perfect accuracy. Enemies cannot parry, block, or counter gun attacks. Guns ignore an enemy's defense as well as the wielder's stats, meaning that damage is calculated solely by the combined attack of the gun and its bullets. Guns add 10 to evasion and can knockback enemies. Guns are the slowest weapons apart from Wyrmhero Blade.

Guns' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(1~1.125)]^2 $

Guns can be used by the Machinist. The Shikari also has access to the late game guns if they unlock Shemhazai on the License Board. As guns' damage is independent of both the wielder's and the enemy's stats, they are good for a low level or "New Game Minus" playthroughs.

Hand-bombs Edit

FFXII Hand Bomb Icon

Similar to axes and hammers, hand-bombs offer the chance of heavy damage at the expense of consistency. They may inflict heavy damage or hardly any damage at all.

Damage is calculated based on the wielder's strength and vitality, the combined attack of the hand-bomb and bomb, and the enemy's defense. Hand-bombs offer no evasion bonus and never deal hit combos or critical hits. Hand-bombs cannot knockback enemies. Hand-bombs have average attack speed for a ranged weapon. Hand-bombs are unaffected by weather.

Hand-bombs' damage calculation:

$ DMG = [Attack Power * Random(0~1.111) -Defense] * [1 + Strength * (Lv+Vitality)/128] $

Hand-bombs are used by the Foebreaker. The Black Mage and the Machinist can also access mid to late-game hand-bombs by unlocking various Espers.
