FFXIV Gladiator Class Breakdown

Yesterday I enlightened you with the basics of FFXIV Classes and Jobs paradigm in Square Enix‘s upcoming re-release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Keep those discussions and comments coming as that is what will drive me to keep expanding on the inner workings and requirements of each job and class that FFXIV has to offer.

Today, we are going to dive right into the Gladiator Class. Keep in mind that we are still in Beta Phase 2 and some of the finer details might change slightly over time as the game gets closer to release. When and if that happens, I will edit this post and try to the best of my abilities to keep the most up to date information.

The FFXIV Gladiator Class is pretty much what it sound like. Bash and Crunch first, and ask questions later. This is your typical warrior style class. If we trace the roots of gladiators back in history, they were the fighting slaves in the coliseums with a sword and shield battling for the amusement of the onlookers in ancient Rome. FFXIV Gladiators will resemble this ancient style of fighting. With the increased shield defense, they naturally fall into a “tank” style of play. According to the FFXIV website, some will have a taunt ability to keep all of his opponents attentions on him and away from the lesser defended friends he might be playing with.

While some of the other classes may not be as straight forward, the FFXIV Gladiator is a warrior tank. In all mmorpg’s there are always tanks at the front of the battle taking hit after hit time and time again. While they may not dish out the most damage, they will definitely TAKE the most damage and stay alive.

As of this writing, it is assumed that the FFXIV Gladiator class will be required for 3 advanced jobs that can be acquired at level 30. (Remember you can always switch classes just by changing weapons) These advanced jobs are as follows:

  • Paladin – Available at Gladiator level 30 and Conjurer level 15
  • Warrior – Available at Marauder level 30 and Gladiator level 15
  • White Mage – Available at Conjurer level 30 and Gladiator level 15 (I know it doesn’t make sense to me either)

Check back often to see the other classes and jobs that FFXIV has to offer.

So is this your class of choice? What advanced jobs will you take first? I look forward to discussions, post below your thoughts and what you will be playing in the comments below!

Here are the current abilities and traits for the Gladiator class:
