The warrior is a master of melee combat, wielding one and two-handed swords with ease.
Warriors possesses many offensive abilities and can wield two-handed broadswords. It is one of the default jobs of the race, as well as Cid's default job. Their abilities can be learned by equipping swords or broadswords. These weapons are mainly obtained through the Bazaar.
Since many of their abilities are based on weapon range, they make a good sub-job for a Dragoon, as spears can spread the rends and lifetap to two targets, as well as MP enabling two mages at once with an elemental spear.
