Overview

Great Swords are a two-handed weapon that is technically a "secondary" weapon class to all the jobs (that is, no job holds Great Sword as their best melee skill), however it sees usage with the Dark Knight, Warrior, Paladin jobs.

Generally speaking, Great Swords have average delay and damage for two-handed weapons, but their true potential is in their weaponskills - Great Sword weaponskills are highly skillchain friendly (especially for Dark Knights who sometimes have a hard time skillchaining with their scythes) and are primarily physical-damage and single hit. This means that the damage, although not quite as impressive as multi-hit weaponskills, are often much more reliable in their damage output, and also benefit the most from powerful single-hit job abilities such as Sneak Attack or Boost.
