As the attack rating for Measures is generally low, they tend to function as a buffering tool when MP is low: you can target your own party members with low-damage attacks that also inflict them with beneficial status effects like Protect, Shell, etc. They are a good choice for support characters who want to conserve MP and gain a high evasion boost while still being able to equip a Shield, but should never actually be used to engage an enemy.
For this class of weapon, the damage output is determined soley by the weapon's attack power, completely ignoring the target's defense.
» All Measures add 25 to evasion.
