Introduction

Gladiators specialize in the handling of all manner of one-handed blades, from daggers to longswords, be they single- or double-edged, straight or curved. Tracing their roots to the Coliseum, where the roar of the crowd reigns supreme, these melee combatants have learned to seamlessly flow between attack and defense in a dance that delights the eye. Making use of their skill with the shield, gladiators can also draw the attention and attacks of an enemy upon themselves, thereby protecting their comrades from harm.

Core mechanics

Gladiator icon.png
The gladiator has moderate damage, but as a tradeoff they have good tanking capabilities.
  •  Shield Lob - Delivers a ranged attack with a potency of 120.
  •  Shield Bash - Delivers an attack with a potency of 110.
  •  Circle of Scorn - Delivers an attack with a potency of 100 to all nearby enemies.
