Monk

Might makes right!

Combat: Melee

Weapons: Claws, bare fists

The monk is the traditional bare-fisted fighter. Without some of the end-game claws, you’re better off equipping nothing for highest attack power (that’s what "bare fists" means). The special Retaliate ability allows a Monk to take a hit and the counter back for double the damage. I recommend you avoid it, as you can deal more damage in two turns. Monks are very powerful out of the box without you needing to grind for money to buy shiny weapons, but like the Warrior job will eventually fall behind. The Black Belt job is a natural upgrade path when you obtain it.
