Question for Final Fantasy XII

Hey, I am playing FFXII right now, and I was trying to figure out which type of weapon would be best for each character to use.(like dagger, sword, pole, bow, staff, etc..) If anyone knows what type of weapon each character is best with I would be very happy. Thank you.

No one is "best" with any weapon. But for a starting set up, use 2 people with swords and one with a bow for flying enemies.

Well for vaan is good with all sorts because he is a well rounded character I find spears swords and katanas are good for him.
Balthier is good also with all sorts but don't make hima dedicated magick user.

Fran is good with bows because of her average stats so let he attack from a distance.

Basch is good with swords spears and poles because they rely on strength which his stat is good for them.
Ashe is better with bows because of her low hp but she is awsome with magick.

And penelo is awsome to with magick and her weapons are guns and maces try to give her weapons that improve her magick abillites.

Hope this helps.

Some characters are better with some weapons due to the fact that their stats are different, but, you can really give any weapon to anyone, and how you play is soley up to you. Also take in to consideration that if you are focus on character on Magic and MP than Staves, Maces, Rods, and Calipers are good choices.

Here are some good choices:

Vann - Daggers, Swords, Poles
Balthier - Guns, Spears,
Ashe - Swords, Katanas, Greatswords
Fran - Bows, Swords
Basch - Axes/Hammers, Swords, Greatswords
Penelo - Daggers, Poles,

I've found that there's no real best configuration for any of the characters. For the longest time I've had Balthier and Ashe on long range weapons, and everyone else had the gambit to execute 1,000 Needles for flying creatures and it worked just fine. I think the idea for not having any set weapon configuration gives the game a lot more flexibility and customization that I rather enjoy.

So have fun, be creative, why not have Fran use the Arcturus.
