Fighter concept art.
|Job Tier||1st Class|
|“||Strength and endurance are the most valued qualities for the Fighter classes, because Fighters need to suppress opponents with strength, and protect allies with endurance. If you join the Fighter Guild, you will start as a squire. From there, after much hard work, you may eventually become a Knight. A Knight can go on to become a fierce Warrior, and the truly determined can become a Warlord, respected by all. The choice will be yours, and yours alone.||”|
Fighters train in the arts of the Akarinas sword, and are awarded their class after qualifying to join a vigilance committee. The Fighter is the basic melee character that will always stand in the front line. Its main purpose is to attack and tank, which means take most of the damage from the monsters. That is why they possess the highest amount of HP and the strongest gears among the other classes. They are also good damage dealers, second after Mages.
In Secret of the Solstice, Fighter was localized to Squire.

Fighters are known to be one of the easiest class to play and to level up. Due to its basic build, a fighter will be able to manage any situation, be it solo or party.
Due to their builds and gears, fighters can solo, even AOE, maps higher than their level if they possess the appropriate gears. However, since a fighter mostly use close range attacks, it will take lots of hits from monsters. When soloing a fighter should carry a lot more HP pots than MP pots. For example, out of 100 pots, 75 should be HP pots and 25 MP pots.
The basic attack scheme of a fighter will most of the time be as follow : Attraction > Shield Crash > Broken Sword > Slash
The first duty of a fighter in a party is to protect other party members, especially the healer. Even if a fight has already been engaged with a monster, if one of the party member with low defense and health (healer, mage or archer) is attacked, the fighter must immediately run up to his help and try to either stun the monster (Shield Crash, Soul Break), get its attention on him (Slash, Attraction...) or make it run(Hard Blow).
