Hand-to-Hand (FFXI)  

Hand-to-hand weapons are the first choice for Monks and Puppetmasters. The fighting style allowed by hand-to-hand weapons emphasizes the possibility for pure damage. Attack and accuracy are calculated the same as one-handed weaponry. However, unlike one and two-handed weapons, the damage and delay on hand-to-hand weapons are calculated in a way unique to this particular class.

Since all jobs with the skill rating allow the character to have an innate hand-to-hand skill when unarmed, the damage of the weapons in the hand-to-hand class are added to that. Hand-to-hand damage is derived from a multiplication of a player's natural hand-to-hand skill by 0.11 and adding 3 to the resulting number. When trying to determine weapon rank, on the other hand, weapon base damage is the damage number displayed on the weapon plus 3, without adding hand-to-hand skill. As a result of this, hand-to-hand damage has a slightly lower cap than other weapons with a similar rating of damage.

Hand-to-hand weapons' delay is calculated similarly. The delay seen on a hand-to-hand weapon is the amount of delay it is adding to a character's natural delay, which is set at 480. With the use of Martial Arts from the Monk and Puppetmaster classes, the natural delay of a character can be reduced. In the case of Monks, their multiple levels of Martial Arts can allow their natural delay to drop to as low as 300.

Please Note: If a character is unarmed and does not have natural hand-to-hand skill, or a support job with the skill, they will only swing once per attack round instead of twice, despite any hand-to-hand merits on that character. In that case, the delay would be the same as if they were swinging twice. For example, a BLM/RDM would swing with one fist per attack round, while a BLM/MNK would swing both fists.
