Overview[edit | edit source]

Aggressive and moderately fast, Fighter can dish out great single-target and area damage. With excellent attack growth and powerful blades, Fighter is well equipped to handle the otherwise tough units, like Defenders and Templars. The class is easy to acquire early on, as its unlocking criteria are not difficult to achieve. Fighter abilities are also easy to access since many blades are purchasable in even the early game.

While the Fighter can deal massive damage to mages, the opposite also holds true. With horrible MP and magic power growth, Fighter cannot become an effective mage. The job lacks supporting/healing abilities, so a Fighter cannot help teammates or debuff enemies. The job is not the fastest around, so even faster units like Ninjas or Assassins can exploit the Fighter's meager defense. Overall, Fighter is the physical powerhouse of humes and one of the most physically inclined classes who likes to get things done before being exposed to status effects and enemy magic.

Magic is deadly against enemy Fighters, but the player must protect their mages too, since Fighters have powerful ranged combat options as well. Status effects like Blind or attack reduction significantly reduce Fighters' powerful offense. Even faster units, like Ninjas, can dispatch Fighters before they can inflict any lethal damage. Fighters do have access to some powerful reaction abilities, making them intimidating to go against in melee combat. They cannot inflict status effects, so other support classes can go crazy on them.
