How to unlock it?
It is obtained beating Dag in the basement of the Outlaw's Den, a small farmhouse not too far from the first city. The battle will also be with Selene, the white sorceress, and we advise you to defeat her first.
The class has several skills, especially active, which allow the weakening and slowing of the opponent's turns. He also has a very useful skill for increase the chances of being attacked. Unfortunately this is not a guarantee, so you will have to repeat Egocentrism several times to maximize the chances of receiving attacks.
The Armored Infantryman has really everything you need in the early stages of the game. We recommend trying this class on Seth (the protagonist) as he is a very good candidate. You can decimate your enemies with Assault Slashes right from the start and abuse Fang Breaker during boss battles that use physical attacks.
The best skills therefore are:
- Cross Slash / Elaborate Cross Cut
- Fang Breaker
- I will give you courage
In fact, almost every infantryman's skill is excellent and should be tried. Not really a tank really, but a fairly robust attacker who can play a support role if needed.
Specialties and special abilities
Each class has two specialties and a special ability. The first specialty is acquired based on when you unlock the class, while the second is obtained by reaching level 12. This type of specialty offers often passive bonuses while the special ability, in addition to being active, allows you to do damage to the enemy .
There are two specialties of the Armored Infantryman. One unlocks at level 1 of the class while the second unlocks at level 12.
Mastery of weapons
The Armored Infantryman, being a purely physical class, prefers heavy weapons and shields.
You will not be able to equip Katanas and Brass Knuckles and it does not matter, you have to consider Axes and Swords and that's it, since you will get excellent ones in the early stages of the game.
Best secondary class
At the moment we noticed that Handyman it can be a good secondary class for the infantryman. The motivation lies in the fact that Examine e Smoothie they are very useful skills in general, and they perform well on a defensive class in dead turns.
