General Description: The Warrior class is probably one most FF vets are familiar with; it’s a class specializing in physical bulk and physical attacks. This job most closely emulates Auron, actually, if you played Final Fantasy X, the main highlight being the Power, Armor, Magic, and Mental Break skills to help lower many bosses’ stats, making things much easier. It’ll be the main physical class you’ll use for the first half of the game, and some other situations, though its general utility becomes replaced by the brute power of the Dark Knight. Even so, it’s ability to use a variety of helpful skills, including elemental-based attacks, make it worth leveling up.

    • **Sentinel - 20 AP - 0 MP Cost:** The user will receive only 1 point of damage from any **physical** attacker until their next turn. Magic attacks and healing are unaffected.
      • **Assault - 100 AP - 0 MP Cost:** The user's party will be under the effect of Berserk (which also applies Strength +1 level, which is +8.33%), but also Haste, Protect, and Shell. The Berserk is unblockable, so you essentially lose all control of the party, but gain power and bulk. Good for random battles.
