The Warrior is a cross between a tank and a physical attacker, which will become apparent with its skills. It is the main class for Olberic and the secondary job shrine is located in North Stonegard Pass. Level Slash is a physical attack that hits all foes with a sword, and it’s a pretty good attack. Abide is a self-buff that increases the user’s physical attack for three turns, with Stout Wall increasing the user’s physical defense for three turns. Spearhead is a physical attack with a spear, but this one makes it so that character will attack first in the next turn (except when a foe is recovering from a break).

Incite is a taunt and will make the enemies more prone to attack you, but this can be a bad thing if you’re up against a powerful foe. Cross Strike is a powerful physical attack that only hits a single foe, but this will most likely be your go-to skill when facing a boss with a Warrior in your party, especially when you max boost it (at least, prior to obtaining the Divine Skill). Thousand Spears is similar to the Hunter’s Rain of Arrows/Arrowstorm, as the accuracy doesn’t affect whether the hits connect and you will always get three hits from it. The Divine Skill, Brand’s Thunder, is just a massive physical attack against a single foe.

(1 of 2) Thousand Spears is fantastic for breaking shields weak to spears

Covering the passive skills, the Warrior has one that will likely become important during Chapter 3 and going into Chapter 4/beyond. Cover is your basic skill that lets the user absorb single-targeted damage from enemies whenever their allies are low on health. Summon Strength simply adds 50 physical strength to the character, which is good when you’re using physical attacks. Endure is an odd one, as it simply gives you the physical/elemental defense buffs whenever that character is afflicted with the listed ailments. The last passive, Surpassing Power, allows you to break the normal 9,999 damage limit, which will become 99,999 with this equipped. You will want this on any characters that might be approaching the normal damage limit.
