"Their forbidden arts use curses to control minds. As so few are fit to master the practice, they are quite rare."
Hexer description, Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight

EO1Hexers

Shrouded in mystery, only their bells reveal their true power.

The Hexer (カースメーカー Curse Maker in the Japanese version, Hexcaster in the European versions) are masters of potent curses and hexes designed to debilitate their enemies until they waste away to nothing. The source of their mysterious prowess comes from the bell attached to their person. Unlike their brethren the Dark Hunter and the Troubadour, they're ill-suited for the front lines and are best kept in the back in almost any circumstance.

ProfileEdit

Description Like their melee counterpart, the Dark Hunter, the Hexer is capable of debilitating enemies with status ailments. Unlike their brethren, however, the Hexer is capable of far more potent debilitation via curses, ranging from strength and defense weakening to powerful curses to make enemies kill each other or even simply lay down and die.
Strengths Powerful disabling hexes that deteriorate enemies' health, strength, defenses, and more to nothing.
Weaknesses Low defenses barring them from the front row, tagged along by mediocre melee capabilities.

Description Similar to their capabilities in Etrian Odyssey, the Hexer remains a powerful ally. With their new arsenal of skills, they gain the ability to take the lives of their enemies in brand new ways, either by protecting their allies by lowering the enemy's accuracy, or by petrifying the enemy, killing it instantly. Although their potency has increased, they're still ill-suited for the front lines, making them ideal to be placed in the back row, unless grimoire stones are used to rectify their meager melee capabilities.
Strengths Powerful debilitation capabilities, including the ability to instantly eradicate enemies unlucky enough to fall victim to the Hexer's curses.
Weaknesses Low defenses, low health, and mediocre melee capabilities that can only be improved through the use of grimoire stones.

Description Stronger than ever before, the Hexers return with a wider arsenal of debilitating curses to hex their enemies with. With their new debilitating prowess, the Hexer can condemn their enemies to being poisoned, paralyzed, blinded, and more. With this new power comes the capability to control enemies - demanding they take the lives of their comrades, or even themselves. As with Etrian Odyssey, they're ill-suited for the front lines due to their meager melee capabilities.
Strengths With heightened mastery of debilitation, their hexes are even more potent than before. Coupled with their high TP cost, they're easily one of the strongest party-mates to keep on-hand.
Weaknesses Low defenses, low health, and mediocre melee capabilities confine the Hexer to the back row, lest have them die frequently.
Force Caprice: When the hexer cannot decide which of its many curses to cast, Caprice will doom the enemy party to a cornucopia of random status ailments.

Description Returning with even further mastery of debilitating curses, the Hexer gains new powers to compliment their old talents from Etrian Odyssey. Gaining the ability to trade the lives of the enemy for their allies' and even restore the lives of fallen comrades, the Hexer gains new grounds into the world of dark magic, allowing them to be far more useful than ever before. With the ability to sacrifice use of their own limbs for the sake of heightened cursing prowess, the Hexer is an ally to fear, as long as they stay standing. However, even with their highly destructive curses, the Hexer is ill-suited for the front lines due to their meager melee capabilities, unless rectified through grimoire stones.
Strengths Potent debilitation capabilities, including the ability to instantly eradicate enemies unlucky enough to fall victim to the Hexer's curses. Incredible Luck growth raises the ease with which the Hexer lands ailments and binds.
Weaknesses Low defenses, low health, and mediocre melee and offensive magic capabilities that can only be improved through the use of grimoire stones.
Force Boost Creeping Curse: For 3 turns, bind/ailment success rate is increased, and enemy debuff counter will not decrease.
Force Break Black Mist: Extends duration of all binds and ailments on enemies. Unusable if the Hexer's head has been bound.

Grimoire Stones Edit

EOUEdit

Skills to generate and pass:

  • Sapping/Frailty/Leaden/Deceit/Relapse Curse: Can be used by any party member and is handy in a boss fight.
  • Curse Mastery: Actually capable of increasing the success rates of all skills that inflict ailments or binds, contrary to the skill description.

Skills best used on a Hexer:

  • Triple Charge (Landsknecht): Raise ailment/bind chance to shut down a resistant boss or enemy.
  • Formulas (Alchemist): Make use of the Hexer's good TEC stat to do damage.

EO2UEdit

Skills to generate and pass:

  • Sapping & Frailty Curses: Due to not requiring any stats, the debuffs can be utilized by anyone and will be handy in a boss fight.
  • All Ailment Curses: To be given to high-luck characters like Survivalists to facilitate hunting of conditional drops.

Skills best used on a Hexer:

  • Perseverance (Dark Hunter): As if the Hexer's ailment accuracy is not good enough, Perseverance will raise the odds of hitting enemies with ailments they resist on repeat attempts.
  • Displace (War Magus): To be used with the Chained Benefit skill, allowing the Hexer to simultaneously bind a target's arms and legs. Note that the binds from Chained Benefit also result in lower turn speed for this combo to work.
  • All Formulas (Alchemist): When the Hexer doesn't need to use ailments or debuffs, an attacking option always helps.
  • Petrifying Gaze (Enemy: Cockatrice): The best means for a Hexer to petrify enemies and eliminate priority targets.
  • Stigmata (Highlander) : This works similarly to Displace, excepts that it first binds your character entirely. That mean that the Hexer will attempt to completely bind itself, and every bind will be given to the target. This stacks with Chained Benefit, and does not use a body part. Excellent against bosses, especially when coupled with a whip Dark Hunter for Ecstasy.

TriviaEdit

  • Even though their arms are already bound with chains, they can still be arm bound by enemies.
    • Funnily enough, in Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold, they gain an ability that inflicts Arm and Leg bind to themselves in order to boost their ailment and bind infliction rate.
