D012 Javelin

The Javelin in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

The blade that tops this slender spear is small, but sharp.

The Javelin (ジャベリン, Jaberin?) is a recurring weapon in the series. It is usually the weakest spear used mainly by the Dragoon class, but varies depending on the game.

Javelin has an Attack of 52, and can be used by Freelancers, Gladiators, and Dragoons. It raises the wielder's Strength by 1 point.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Edit

The javelin was originally thrown high into the sky to attack foes from a great distance. With the improvements on cost and transportation of weapons brought by the emergence of the bow and arrow, however, the use of the javelin to attack long distance gradually diminished. Since this weapon was meant to be disposable, it was produced in such large numbers that it is now often used for lance training.

Etymology Edit

A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown as a ranged weapon. The javelin is almost always thrown by hand, although hurling devices do exist. The word javeline comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelin, a diminutive of javelot, which meant spear.
