Assessment

Gladiator is a strong offensive class with a high double attack rate and powerful skills. Unique to the class is its ability to equip an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section, which boosts certain skills, including damaging skills that could rival the Hermit and Sidewinder.

The following skills are assessed below:

  • Ability Blade Swap.png Blade Swap
    Gain Status Blade Swap.pngBlade SwapNext charge attack switches to the auxiliary weapon's charge attack (Can't be removed)

    Duration: 1 turns
    and Status C.A. DMG Boosted (1 time).png C.A. DMG Up (1 time)Charge attack DMG is boosted (1 time)

    Duration: 1 turns
    .
    (Can only be used when an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section is equipped.)
    : Perhaps the most situational class skill in the game, due to its requirements and lasting only for a single turn. Its main purpose is the ability to use the auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section's charge attack, which can potentially bring a different set of utility for the party.
  • Ability Twin Coil.png Twin Coil
    2-hit, 200% elemental damage to all foes. (Damage cap: ~415,000 per hit.)
    : A fairly straightforward nuke. It has one of the highest damage cap among class skills, but its low base damage requires players to have an advanced weapon grid and a specific setup to reach it.
  • Ability Decimate.png Decimate
    5-hit, 100% superior elemental damage to a foe. (Damage cap: ~81,000 per hit.)
    When an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section is equipped: Number of hits doubles to 10.
    : Another fairly straightforward nuke which is prized for its ability to always hit foes with superior element. It becomes even more powerful with an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section. Useful to bring against multiple enemies with different elements. However, note that by changing its element, it may not be affected by certain weapon skills or summon auras that affect only a particular element, such as Seraphic Weapons.

Gameplay Notes[edit]

  • Gladiator's normal attacks count as one damage instance despite appearing as two instances; the visual effect is purely cosmetic.
  • If Ability Decimate.png Decimate

    is copied by Facsimile, it will deal 10 hits if there is an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section, just like the MC’s.

Auxiliary Weapon[edit]

Auxiliary weaponsA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section are a unique mechanic to Gladiator and Chrysaor. These are regular weapons that can be set up in the weapon grid, and are used to activate or improve certain skills. Not having an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section does not prevent players from using the class. However, they may not be played in their fullest potential.

To equip an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section, there are three simple requirements:

  • The weapon must be set at the top-leftmost corner of the weapon grid
  • The weapon must be a sword or katana
  • The weapon must have the same element as the main hand weapon

Other than these requirements, the auxiliary can be any weapon, including Class Champion Weapons of other classes. However, because they are part of the grid instead of the main hand weapon, these weapons do not make use of their main hand skills, if any.

The following skills require the use of an auxiliary weaponA sabre or katana of the same element as the main weapon equipped in the top-left slot of the sub weapon section:

  • Ability Blade Swap.png Blade Swap
