XIV

The art of the marauder was first born in the crucible of brutal ship-to-ship skirmishes. Found to be just as--if not more--effective on dry land, this fighting style relies on one's ability to properly direct the force generated by the axe's heavy blade. Thus the techniques employed by a marauder seek to maximize the destructive potential of our chosen weapons. The axe is used to rend, to cleave, and to destroy. It is not our way to simply outfight our adversaries; we seek to overwhelm them. A marauder must be the most powerful and enduring presence on the battlefield; we must account for the most enemies defeated. Our role in combat is that of a steel whirlwind, dealing death and destruction without equal.

The Marauder (斧術士, Fujutsu Shi?) is a Disciple of War in Final Fantasy XIV. Their guild is based inside the Coral Tower in Limsa Lominsa. Marauder can be upgraded to Warrior using a Soul Crystal gained from the quest Pride and Duty (Will Take You from the Mountain), after Marauder is level 30 and Gladiator is levelled to 15.

ProfileEdit

MarauderEdit

The marauder is a combat specialist who wields the greataxe—a fearsome arm emblematic of Eorzea's pirates. Their approach to battle is one of brute force, relying on strength and steel to crush enemies and sunder weapons.

They are highly sought after for their ferocity and intimidating presence, and are often employed to hunt down monsters plaguing the land, or turning the tide of battle between warring nations. Throwing axes, such as the Francisca, supplement the marauders' arsenal, making them fearsome adversaries even at range.
—Lodestone

Marauders attack with an axe and equip heavy armor. Their main role in battle is that of a Tank and many of their attacks have the added effect of increasing the enmity in enemies, forcing them to attack the Marauder instead of other party members.

Marauders generally have the highest HP pool of all classes. They possess abilities capable of restoring their own HP while damaging enemies. As such, Marauders are often seen as a more reactive tank, as opposed to the more proactive Gladiator class. Despite being a tank, Marauders have a high damage per second ratio.

WarriorEdit

Warrior Hyur Artwork XIV
On the northernmost edge of Abalathia's Spine exists a mountain tribe renowned for producing fearsome mercenaries. Wielding greataxes and known as warriors, these men and women learn to harness their inner-beasts and translate that power to unbridled savagery on the battlefield.

In former times which saw war waged ceaselessly in Eorzea, the warriors featured prominently on the frontlines of battle. With the arrival of peacetime their art has descended into the shadows of obscurity, where it remains to this day.
—Lodestone

Warrior grants new enmity and AoE skills.
