"When the call to war came, it was the common smiths who first raised their weapons in answer." - The Study of Arms
Flail (フレイル, Fureiru?), also known as Iron Flail and Iron Hammer, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is often a powerful weapon when first obtained, but is quickly surpassed by others. It is often found around the beginning of the game to about the quarter point. More often than not, it allows the user to deal full damage from the back row, and is usually equippable by White Mages or other spell casting classes.
The Flail is a low-level staff that provides 13 Attack and a Hit Rate of 16 and allows the user to attack from the back row. It can be used by Freelancers, White Mages, Red Mages, Oracles, Chemists, and Mimes. It can be bought in Karnak for 780 gil or stolen from Atomos.
Even a weakling can cause serious damage with this type of Nunchaku but they're also hard to use. This Flail has long been a favorite for beginners.
