Assessment

An offensive class centered around the narrowly useful but nonetheless potent ability to store area burst damage.

    is the core mechanic of the class, allowing a player to ensure (with enough stacks) that their next skill reaches its damage cap. Such burst is excellent for breaking foes out of overdrive, battles with multiple foes, or stacking/manipulating HP triggers, but loses value in higher-level content where Aether Blast's damage cap is no longer a significant amount of damage

Overall, Hermit is a unique class that will be of different value to each player. It may be worth unlocking early for newbies who feel the area burst will allow them to clear more challenging content, but could just as easily be the lowest-priority Row III class for players who need more consistent, efficient or defensive tools.

    can be useful in battles with multiple foes when focusing one is unimportant or nonviable; buy when needed.
