Daggers: ASPD of these weapons are good as a Swordman, but they inflict less damage on medium and large monsters compared to a One Handed Sword. Nonetheless, daggers inflict 100% to small monsters. Daggers can also be used with a Shield, as Daggers are one handed.
One Handed Swords: They have the same ASPD as daggers, and they also inflict more damage on medium monsters. Nonetheless, the ASPD becomes better than that of a dagger after becoming a Knight or Crusader. One Handed Swords can also be used with a Shield.
Two Handed Swords: These are not the best choice for a beginning Swordman since the ASPD is very low and a shield cannot be worn with one equipped. However, they can be used with a Knight's Two Hand Quicken skill.
Spears: Swordmen rarely use these due to having the lowest ASPD of all weapons a Swordman can use, unless to take advantage of their range to attack steady enemies from afar. However, One Handed Spears are great for Knights, while Two Handed Spears are good for a Crusader's Holy Cross skill.
Others: Maces have lower ASPD than Daggers and One Handed Swords but higher than Axes and Two Handed Swords and much higher than Spears, while Axes are only somewhat faster than Spears. However, they're even more rarely used than Spears.
