Saizo is an offense wonder, and doesn’t slouch off in the Defense department either. He suffers in Speed, however, but this is patched up through his Ninja class. His secondary class, Samurai, can also help him, giving him a lot of great offensive options.

Saizo is unique in that his high magic growths can allow him to either reclass into magical options, or make use of magical-based Shuriken. Take advantage of his dual offenses to pierce through enemies regardless of whether they have good defense or good resistance! Just be wary of Saizo’s Speed so that he doesn’t get doubled up on by other enemies, particularly enemy Ninjas.
