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.
Marauders are strong heroes who bear greataxes to crush their enemies. This class approaches defending allies by trusting in steel and ferocity, and will do all they can to protect their comrades.
- Blacksmith — Greataxes.
- Armorer — Plate armor.
- Goldsmith — Earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings.
