Songstress

General Description: If you were to look at the "General Info" below, your first assumption would likely be that this class is pretty single-minded: have some magic, right? The Songstress is a class whose potential happens to lie dormant for much of the game, shining in only a few bosses. For the Songstress is essentially the class you want when you need to throw ailments on multiple enemies at once, or to buff your own stats. The most commonly used ailments will be those that inflict Darkness or Sleep on the enemy, which have pretty obvious uses. Even so, don’t expect to use this class a lot.
