FFXI Great Sword 6A

The Ragnarok, a recurring Greatsword.

Greatswords (大剣, Taiken?), are a recurring type of weapon in the Final Fantasy series. The weapon class often features in games with some sort of speed statistic, where the Greatswords are stronger than the normal sword types, but make the user slower. However, Greatswords are usually equipped as two-handed weapons. In essence, Greatswords are stronger and heavier versions of the ordinary swords.

Recurring Greatswords include the Great Sword, the Claymore, the Ragnarok, the Tournesol, the Hardedge, and the Buster Sword.

About Greatswords

Greatswords are swords whose construction are intended to be longer and bigger for uses against cavalry, distanced fighting against foes with range advantaged weapons, and even to slaying monsters of great size. Their sizes can range up to even the size of the very wielder themselves in some installments.

The Defender.

The Greatswords are a weapon class in Final Fantasy XII. They are strong swords that are two-handed and do not show up until later in the game's storyline. The weakest Greatsword, the Sword of Kings, is only obtained in the Stilshrine of Miriam with 30 Attack points. Final Fantasy XII's Greatswords differ from other in the series, by having an unusually high rate of attack; much faster than regular, one-handed swords.

In the International Zodiac Job System, the Knight has access to all greatswords while the Red Mage and White Mage have access to a few. Also, the Sword of Kings, Treaty-Blade, and the Wyrmhero Blade can be equipped by any character, regardless of their job.
