Sword Saint (全剣技, Zen Ken Gi?), also known as Holy Swordsman, is a special Job class from Final Fantasy Tactics. Orlandeau's default Job class, this Job focuses on swords and every sword technique possible. This Job is a powerhouse, and needs little support. Sword Saint is arguably the best class, and is widely used due to both the incredible slaughter it can unleash and the fact that Orlandeau comes equipped with Excalibur, which considerably augments the class's efficiency.
Sword Saint has strong stat gains - physically exceptional and magically competent - and has versatile equipment options, able to equip not only helms and armor but hats, clothes, and robes. Though only swords and Knight Swords will allow him access to the class' abilities, Orlandeau can also equip daggers, ninja swords, and katanas, indicating his mastery of swordplay. It costs 5,250 JP to master this Job.
A peerless warrior who commands an entire knightly order. It is said that none can match his swordplay.
