Introduction

Marauders are combat specialists whose weapon of choice is the greataxe—a fearsome arm long associated with Eorzea's pirates. Their approach to battle is one of brute force, as they rely on pure strength and good steel to crush enemies and sunder weapons. They are highly sought after for their ferocity and intimidating presence, and are often employed to hunt down monsters plaguing the land or to turn the tide of battle between warring nations. Skilled marauders have been known to take on entire packs of slavering beasts and emerge with little more than a few scrapes and bruises.

Core mechanics

Marauder icon.png
The marauder offers a decent damage and tanking gameplay, but requires expertise as they can grow complex to manage later on.

As a tanking class, marauders have to correctly combo Flash (role ability), Tomahawk and Butcher's Block to draw aggro from damage dealers, while triggering defense-increasing weaponskills.
