FFXI Axe 3

The Battleaxe.

Axes (, Ono?) are a recurring weapon type from the Final Fantasy series. They are usually two-handed weapons, meaning that a character cannot simultaneously use a shield. Axes are generally not as accurate as other weapons.

Recurring axes include the Ogre Axe, Venom Axe, and Rune Axe (which uses MP to add more damage and tends to be the ultimate axe). They are most often associated with the Berserker class. Kaeli from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest uses axes, and there are many others from various other games that do so as well, such as Guy from Final Fantasy II.
