How to Play the Berserker

Wipe Enemy Mobs Easily

The Berserker can use the Level Slash and Crescent Moon ability which can hit whole groups of enemies for the measly cost of a few HP or BP. A great power leveling class!

100% Accuracy Can Ease Wiki-wiki Hunting

The Berserker's ability can make killing Wiki-wikis easier. The consequence is you'll take a percentage of the damage you deal from attacks but if you're looking to slay these birds, it is a small price to pay.

Combo with Thief

The Thief's Mug Ability can be comboed with the Berserker's ability to attack all targets. Quick battles and more items gained!

Thief Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

Extremely Low Speed and Mediocre Durability

The Berserker is one of the slowest class in the game and it also suffers from low durability. This is the reason why it is highly preferred to use the Berserker as a Sub-Job.

Monk

The Monk class is a great sub-Job for the Berserker when post game comes. Its Death's Door + Phoenix Flight combo is extremely strong since Death's Door's damage ratio is relative to how low your current HP is.
