It will probley be a staff or somthing like that but im nto quite sure, If they can learn melee skills then they may use melee wepons. We really don't know how tihs class is really going to work but i nkow it will be interesting. I wonder how you will learn skills and when you do, whta skills can be learned? Im wondering if you can even copy liek white/black/red mage kills or melee skills form people. Im really looking foward to how they will play and im wanting to see if they will us emelee skills and stuff also... We just have to sit back, relax and wait!
We already know they use curved swords,so thats probobally their most proficient weapon.
My guess is they will be B+ rated in sword,but will get access to the scimitar style weapons. Notice,PLDs prototypical sword are the long swords and such, RDM gets rapiers,and theives can use all the scimitars. There is alot of overlap,but thats the general rule. What I would like to see is swords divided into rapiers and normals swords (and perhaps scimitars now) Blu could be A rated in scimitar,RDM A in rapier,PLD A in Single Handed Sword. RDM and BLU would NOT be proficient (or C rated proficiency) in the other two,but PLD would have A in SHS and B+ ratings in the others. Never going to happen though.
