"Trust no one but the edge of your blade"
Dex 35, Str 55, Int 10
The primary melee class of Seven Swords, has the highest physical attack, physical defence, and health. Gladiators fight with swords and use mostly close range skills. Excellent at one on one combat since melee attacks are fast and can interrupt skill use.
Melee attack: For a gladiator, the basic melee attack involves slashing the opponent several times with a razor-sharp sword. The attack animation for this basic attack is different between male and female gladiators, however, they both deal the same amount of damage. The melee attack is an integral part of the gladiator's skills, being the most adept class in melee combat. Like all melee attacks, it is vulnerable to counter, but can interrupt a ranged assault.
Ranged attack: The ranged attack for the gladiator class involves charging power in the user's sword, and releasing it at the opponent. The gladiator's ranged attack is the weakest and slowest of all of the classes, and should only be used as a last resort. Ranged attacks are not effective against mellee attacks, but they are effective against the counter skill.
Counter: The user adopts a defensive stance, deflecting any mellee attack that is launched at the user. The counter skill is useful in mellee combat, but is not effective against ranged assaults. Counter is particularly effective against the gladiator class, as their primary method of attack involves a combination of three mellee attacks. Can be bought for 10 000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies one skill slot.
Charm: This attack is useless against monsters, but is only to be used in a player-vs-player (P.V.P.) situation. The attack involves the user blowing a kiss at an enemy, which causes enemies of the opposite gender of the user to fall in love with the user. The enemy turns a shade of pink, with a series of hearts floating above their head. The enemy who is subjected to this attack can only attack the user of this attack for a short period of time. This attack is useful when used by a tank, who can protect their comrades in combat by drawing attention away from their weaker allies, and instead, having the enemies' attacks focused upon themselves. It is not used often, as many people over look the potential that his attack has. Can be bought for 10,000 gran from the ite store. This skill occupies two skill slots.
Berserk: This attack causes the user to enter a frenzied state, causing them to turn a shade of blood-red. In this state, attacks are not interrupted by the melee of attacks of enemies, maximizing the potential to deal damage for a period of time. This is one of the most commonly used skills in the game. Very effective when paired with the guard skill. Can be bought for 10,000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies two skill slots.
Guard: Causes the user adopt a defensive position, maximizing defensive potential for a short period of time. The user turns a shade of dark blue, and defensive power of the user increases drastically. This is commonly used when training, as it is the most effective way to conserve the maximum amount of health when training. Can be bought for 2000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies one skill slot.
Smash: The name pretty much says it all... the user jumps into the air, and slashes their sword into the enemy with an incredible force. This is a very common gladiator skill, used by both novices, as well as seasoned veterans. This attack is commonly used at the beginning of combat, due to the fact that it is easily interrupted. Can be bought for 2000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies one skill slot.
Provoke: Temporarily forces the target to focus their attacks on the user for a short period of time, effectively protecting surrounding allies. This attack is skill is extremely effective when coupled with the guard skill, as the user can tank the attack. Can be bought for 2000 gran from the items store. This skill occupies one skill slot.
Large Smash: An advanced version of smash. Unlike smash that only attacks one target, this skill can damage multiple opponents, and knock them off their feet. Useful at dispatching a large number of opponents at once, or in order to escape from a large group of enemies. Once again, however, this attack is easily interrupted, so it is recommened to use as a first strike in battle. Can be bought from 10 000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies two skill slots.
Stun Bash: A mellee attack that stuns the opponent for about 5 seconds. This attack is very useful for interrupting opponenets in the process of using skills, such as enemy Clerics healing their allies. This skill can also be used to flee from a single opponent, and provide precious time to heal. Can also be used to stun the foe, and then dispatch them at a distance. Can be bought for 2000 gran from the item store. This skill occupies one skill slot.
