Introduction

The path of the pugilist is one of incessant training aimed at mastering the traditional techniques of hand-to-hand combat. Though pugilists command formidable power when unarmed, they are wont to use metal, leather, and bone weaponry to maximize their destructive potential. Their preference for fighting at close quarters makes negotiating distances an absolute necessity. Many among them accomplish this by avoiding burdensome armor, allowing for maximum mobility while they move in for the kill.

Core mechanics

Pugilist icon.png
Pugilists work out their damage by regularly alternating combat forms, while positioning correctly to use their damage actions effectively.
  •  Snap Punch - Delivers an attack with a potency of 130. 170 when executed from a target's flank.
  •  Internal Release - Increases critical hit rate by 30%.
  •  Perfect Balance - Allows execution of weaponskills which require a certain form, without being in that form.

Pugilists execute quick, sequenced combos and maintain Greased Lightning effect to reduce cast/recast time and action delay, therefore increasing number of attacks dealt. The same effect also affects you global cooldown.
