Due to their incredible Attack stats, these two are the best characters for Ogres, which is a class focused on raw power. Though Noah is not as recommended as the characters above, he also makes a decent Ogre thanks to his high Dexterity stat.

Shadow Eye is the best Master Art for Ogres as it increases their attack while also reducing aggro. Shield Bash is also recommended for the Topple reaction, which increases the damage of this class thanks to one of its skills.

Fatal Bite is also a powerful attack, but if you use it with other Positional Attacks in the Ogre's palette, then the Positing Pro Master Skill is necessary.

Though the Talent Art of this class is already excellent due to its high damage, especially on Launched enemies, The evasion and defense-bypassing effects of Violent Streak are also a good alternative Talent Art for the class.

Skills that increase damage potential work great on the Ogre class, which focuses primarily on Attack. Being an Attacker class, receving additional TP is always welcome due to the to bonus they get when attacking first in a chain.

Positioning Pro is also recommended since many Positional Arts work well with the class.

Once you unlock Rank 15 Master Skills in some classes, Covert Attack and Shock Shot are two excellent skills to replace some of those in the list above. Covert Attack is especially important to help reduce aggro.

Best Accessories for Ogre Builds

Boosted Damage on Launced Enemies Increased Auto-Attack Damage Boosted Attack
White WrapsWhite Wraps Assault StoneAssault Stone Silver BeltSilver Belt

White Wraps seem to be specially made for the Ogre Class since it specializes in launching enemies in the air. Increasing Attack damage is also beneficial, especially Auto-Attack damage since Ogre is an Agnus class.

Best Gems for Ogre Builds

Steady Striker ISteady Striker Doublestrike IDoublestrike Steelcleaver ISteelcleaver

Due to their large weapon size, Ogres have slower Auto-Attack speed than most other classes. Auto-Attacking is important for Agnus classes as it recharges their Art Gauges, so Auto-Attack increasing Gems are ideal for Ogres.
