Top 10 Best Swords in Final Fantasy XIV

They are a various amount of weapons to choose from in the hit online RPG, Final Fantasy XIV. However, the weapon very much depends on the class that you want to become. For each class, there are numerous weapons types they can wield, which are ideally suited for that class. Putting a staff in the hands of the tank or DPS, doesn’t seem like such a good idea, does it?

Swords are only usable by Gladiator and by Paladins, ones a DPS class, and the other a back up healer/tank. Though these weapons might not be the best in terms of damage output, they instead hit more often than the other weapons, so it balances out nicely.

Swords also tend to have added stats geared towards, Determination, which affects damage dealt and healing gained, and Tenacity is the same but is only for tanks.
