"Warriors are weapon experts. Their Advance ability allows them to deal even more damage than normal, but they also get hit a lot harder."
The Warrior(戦士,Senshi?), also known as Fighter, is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained from the Wind Crystal. In the opening FMV of the DS/PSP remake, Luneth is depicted as a Warrior. Warriors have a high aptitude for wielding swords in battle. Having focused all their training on physical combat, they are unable to use any magic.
The Warrior (Fighter) has no special command in this version. At the beginning of the game, they are the power houses, providing the best boosts to all physical stats. Once the Knight job is unlocked, this job loses its usefulness.
The Advance command lets the Warrior sacrifice some defense in order to strike harder. Both the damage bonus and defense reduction are related to the Warrior's current job level using the following formulas:
Damage Bonus = Original Damage x (1.5 + JobLv / 110)
Defense Reduction = Original Defense x (1.5 + JobLv / 110)
In the Famicom Version, the Warrior's overworld and battle sprites are nearly identical to Firion's from the original version of Final Fantasy II, which in turn were also slight modifications to the Warrior sprite from the inaugural Final Fantasy.
