The Broadsword, a common sword.

A weapon (武器, Buki?) is the piece of equipment a unit will use in battle, either primarily or secondarily. Whenever the standard Attack command is used, the unit will attack the target with their equipped weapon. Sometimes a weapon can be used in the attack, though not actually used to attack. An example would be mages using their equipped rods and staves to cast magic. Another example could be whenever a character uses the weapon to initiate a powerful attack.

Some job classes, such as the Red Mage, Blue Mage, and Gladiator, can use a variety of weapon types, while the Mime class often does not use weapons at all, rather relying on its own special skills.
