|Katana/Swords, Naginata/Lances, Clubs/Axes|

The Master of Arms is very versatile and bulky, and well-balanced. As a result, they can wield many kinds of weapons to always have the advantage on the battlefield (unless the enemy is using a Beaststone). Their access to Seal Strength makes them one of the few classes that will have the Seal set, a set of skills that will debuff the enemies. As a result, Master of Arms is one of the skills you can run through to create a "sealbot", a character whose existence is to debuff multiple stats at once.
Life or Death is a very interesting skill. On one hand, it will increase your damage output by ten points , which will very definitely make a difference. But in exchange, your own characters become very fragile. This skill can create the ultimate glass cannon build, and if used properly, will absolutely decimate the foe. One interesting thing you can do is if a character has access to both Merchant and Master of Arms, you can stack Life or Death with Spendthrift , increases damage output by +20 and mitigating the increase in received damage, all for the price of one Gold Bar.
Note: A word on Seal skills. They will drop the enemy’s stats by 6 points, and the enemy will recover at 1 point per turn, so it’ll take 6 turns to recover. Debuffs on different stats will stack, but debuffs on the same stat will not stack.
