The day the demon came into my arm... my life was changed forever!

The Slayer derives his power from the demon Kazan, who dwells within his arm, locking this warrior in a perpetual struggle to keep from being possessed completely. Only the thick, mystical chains shackled to him keep the dark parasite at bay. As a consequence, the Slayer can only wield a weapon in one hand, a disability he has fashioned into a distinct advantage, doing with one arm what most other swordsmen would need two to do. He primarily attacks his enemies with swords and blunt weapons, but can also, when in a dungeon high in demonic energy, call upon the dark power within him to cast magic spells. This dark power also gives the Slayer a particularly high resistance to Shadow energy, but unusually low resistance to Light energy.

Details

  • Well balanced class suited for newer players due to his ease of use and lack of real flaws.
  • He possesses a mix of magic and physical attacks and weapons to easily match
    • Though having the right weapon helps your skills of choice nicely.

Subclass Advancement

Blade Master - An quick and versatile physical class able to use various weapons, Including LightSabres to their fullest. His combo ability is among the best of the Slayer subclasses and he's able to do dps and burst rather well. While not the toughest Slayer Subclass, his light armor use emphasizes his speed while providing some defense.

Soul Bender - A magic class that can do dark damage and/or AoE Debuffing support. He's usually associated with the Katana, though Short Swords are sometimes used. Since he uses cloth armor, showing some caution is advised when not ghost walking.

Berserker - A physical class that focuses on damage at the cost of his HP with supporting skills to enhance it and to restore the spent HP. He also boasts pretty high defense due to heavy armor and skills like Diehard. He's mainly associated with Zanbatos, though Katanas and Bludgeons have been seen used by some.

Asura - A much more direct Magic class, able to attack with a mix of elements. He uses Short Swords mainly for his attacks.
