Ah, the trustworthy sword; RPG staple and the go-to weapon for many a heroic warrior. Here, swords offer decent attack and a solid accuracy rate; they will fit well in many hands. As swords are one-handed weapons, you can improve their attack with the Knight’s Two-Handed ability (to hold one using both hands) or the Ninja’s Dual Wield ability (to have one in each hand).

Note : All swords have an Aim stat of 90.
