    This class is fun to train to 140, especially 4th job. They are stronger than average as well. There is a small learning curve with mobbing at 4th job but once you get it down, its game on!

  6. Adriaan

    The attacks are slow and not so efficient. It kaes a second after the best first job skill before ypou can pick up drops, rather annoying that is.
