Primary Skill

Final Fantasy XIV introduces the Armoury System, where equipping a weapon (or tool) determines a player's class. A primary skill is a skill which is used with the implement equipped in the primary hand. A secondary skill is a skill which is used with the implement equipped in the off-hand.
