Cestus all

The Cestus (Japanese name) is a class originating in Etrian Odyssey V. They are designed around melee attacks, like the Monks from EOIII, but have attacks that are either capable of bindings like the Dark Hunters, or possess powerful attacks that cost HP to use, like the Highlanders. Depending on how they are built, they are strong frontline offense classes and disablers.

Their prestige titles further enhance one of their two roles. Combo Pugilists not only disable their enemies by inflicting binds and paralysis, but are capable of dealing multiple hits in a single turn, and receive better bonuses to Luck and Agility to quickly disable their targets. Impact Fists take the high-risk high-reward approach, deliberately reducing their HP to raise their damage output, and enjoy better HP, Strength, Vitality, and Wisdom growth.
