This is the sword. The nethicite destroyer.
The Sword of Kings (覇王の剣, Haō no Ken?, lit. Supreme King's Sword) is a recurring sword in the series. It originates from Final Fantasy XII as a sword that belonged to the Dynast King Raithwall with the power to cut nethicite.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
In the original version it boasts an Attack power of 30 and an Evade of 30 with a 25% chance to perform multiple hits. It requires no license to equip. Stat-wise, it is identical to the Treaty-Blade. All greatswords have 2.47s charge, and 1.2s action time, making them average when it comes to attacking speed.
Despite being able to cut through nethicite, Sword of Kings is a fairly weak weapon. Its only special quality being a high combo rate and that it can't knockback opponents even if other greatswords can. Sword of Kings cannot be sold.
The Sword of Kings appears as Vaan's second exclusive weapon, with ATK +63 and EX Core Absorption +20%.
However, along with the usual added benefits of limit breaking the weapon's passive to give it a faster recast speed and higher bravery damage potency, max limit breaking the weapon adds a 100% paralysis rate on Maelstrom's Bolt's usage, along with an automatic followup of Ark Blast (a 5-hit BRV+HP Attack that inflicts thunder damage to a single target).
The uncanny brand of a champion from another world. Seeks not to be used, raising evasion instead.
Vaan wields the Sword of Kings, even if he wasn't associated with the weapon in Final Fantasy XII, as the player can assign any weapon to any character, and thus character-specific ultimate weapons do not exist.
A legendary sword from the distant world of Ivalice. It was bequeathed to the Dynast-King Raithwall by the gods, and received its name for its usage in uniting all of Ivalice. A certain princess of Dalmasca and descendant of the Dynast-King obtained this very blade at an ancient temple.
Sword of Kings (FFXII) is a sword obtained as the Super Trust Master Reward from Dethroned Heroine Ashe. It provides 120 ATK, 22 DEF, 171 MAG, 22 SPR, enables usage of the ability Power to Destroy Nethicite, and mitigates magic damage for the user by 25%.
