Final Fantasy XIVEdit

Macuahuitls are a recurring weapon for Gladiators and Paladins. Typically lower level weapons, they can be acquired from various sources, such as quests, dungeons, vendors, or crafting. Uniquely, Macuahuitls are crafted by Carpenters rather than Blacksmiths like other swords. The most powerful current Macuahuitl is the Darklight Macuahuitl, which can be dropped by Anantaboga in Amdapor Keep or the Tonberry King in the Wanderer's Palace.

The macuahuitl is a weapon shaped like a wooden sword whose name is derived from the Nahuatl language. Its sides were embedded with prismatic blades made from obsidian, a volcanic glass stone. It was similar to a large wooden club with grooves in the side to hold the sharpened obsidian.
