The berserker is a combat juggernaut who wields the most powerful weapon in the game. The sight of these heavily armored fighters swinging their axes with seeming abandon can instill considerable respect in their enemies.
If you love shaking the ground with your blows, standing fast against charging enemies, and seeing your opponents flying away from the force of your strikes, the berserker is definitely the class for you.
Berserkers fight with a two handed axe. Like lancers, they use the heaviest armor possible to absorb blows and keep the attention of enemies. But the berserker differs from the lancer in one important respect: berserkers also learn similar support skills to the lighter armed and more mobile warriors.
Although most berserker skills are strikes, many are effective against multiple enemies. Their arsenal also includes many self-support skills that enable them to solo effectively.
The berserker is an offensive juggernaut with better-than-average defensive capabilities that include heavy armor and an axe block that absorbs damage according to the quality of the axe. A dash skill helps make up for slowness of movement between battles, but many berserker attacks are charged, and take extra time to deliver their lethal levels of harm. At times like this, an axe-wielder needs a friend. Berserkers have multiple ways of recharging their own MP, and can absorb damage dealt to a foe into their own HP. They have ways of increasing their strength to help end a fight quickly. Their ability to fend for themselves better than many classes, and their capacity for sheer destruction, give them a place of honor in any party.
