Rods are just about the only weapons that offer additional Magic Attack–essential for offensive magic spells. You can use Rods for physical attacks too, but spell-casters should stay clear due to their low Strength; physical jobs shouldn’t bother either as Rods generally have poor Physical Attack.

Note : All Rods have an Aim stat of 90.
