The Nohrian answer to the Sky Knight class, the Wyvern Riders are true melee tanks, weakened only by magic and bows. Like Fighters, they will suffer from accuracy issues due to axes and clubs being how they are, but they hit very hard and have excellent upgrade paths with good skills all the way to the end. For a small bit of trivia, the Wyvern Rider is one of the only classes whose upgrade paths are both exclusive to itself. Gives it a bit of a special feel, doesn’t it?

Lunge is a really great skill you get early on. If an enemy is far out, you can use Lunge, or even chain multiple Lunge commands, to force the enemy into the heart of your own forces and crush them. This can also let you isolate powerful enemies from adjacently paired foes.
