Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift description
Flail (フレイル, Fureiru?), also known as Iron Flail and Iron Hammer, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is often a powerful weapon when first obtained, but is quickly surpassed by others. It is often found around the beginning of the game to about the quarter point. It has appeared as various tyoes of weapons: a staff, nunchaku, and hammer. More often than not, it allows the user to deal full damage from the back row, and is usually equippable by White Mages or other spellcasting classes.
