Master of poking you.

Hoshidan. A soldier who has mastered the naginata. Their stats are balanced.

Seal Speed After battle, the enemy’s Speed drops by -6 points
Lancefaire When user has a naginata/lance equipped, damage dealt increases by +5 points

The spear counterpart to the Swordmaster (get it?! get it ?!), the Spear Fighter has exclusive focus on naginata/lances. This isn’t a bad thing either, as the stats are well-balanced in an above-average sort of way and they are capable of achieving S-rank with their weapon proficiency.

Seal Defense is one of the most useful seal skills in the set since so many enemies and allies use melee and thus rely on Strength and Defense. Lancefaire, like any of the “-faire” skills, is amazing, resulting in a class that is all-around worth reclassing into…and staying in. Very strong and you won’t be disappointed.
