Great Swords (FFXI)  

Great Swords, two-handed weapons with average delay and damage for two-handers, can be used by Dark Knights, Warriors, and Paladins. Although all three of these jobs have at least one other weapon-category that carries a higher skill rating, they are still widely used, due to their effectiveness. Great Sword-category weapons have many stats available, such as melee accuracy, attack, and Additional Effect damage. Primary stat bonuses, such as STR, MND and DEX can also be found on some Great Swords. Great Swords make excellent weapons for any job that can use them but they are most often used by Dark Knights.

Great Sword weaponskills don't vary all that widely, most are single-hit, physical damage skills. Two of them inflict Ice damage, and their single AoE WS can inflict sleep status upon anything it hits.
