FFRK Samurai Icon

Samurai (, Samurai?) is an ability type in Final Fantasy Record Keeper, and part of the Other category.

MechanicsEdit

The Samurai school has a split focus depending on ability ranks. At lower ranks Samurai abilities can inflict status ailments on enemies. Higher level Samurai abilities, which make up the majority of the school, rely on manipulation of Retaliate status, variably granting the status to the user or having increased effect if used while the user has Retaliate status. Samurai abilities tend to be Fire and Ice elemental.

Notable abilities in the Samurai school include: Retaliate, which causes the user to dodge and counter physical blows; Iai Strike, which deals damage and can inflict Instant KO; Flashing Blade, which executes faster and faster the more it is used; the "Warring" attacks which strike four times with an increased critical hit chance if the user has Retaliate status; and the Rank 6 ability Demonsblood.

Rank 6Edit

Unlocking access to Rank 6 Samurai abilities requires the individual character to be at Level 65 and have their second level cap broken, unlocking their Record Spheres. The player can then use Samurai Motes to unlock access to Rank 6 Samurai. Note that only characters with innate access to Rank 5 Samurai will have the Empowered Sphere that includes access to Rank 6 Samurai; characters who must use their Record Spheres to access Rank 5 have no Empowered Sphere for Samurai and cannot access Rank 6.
