Cestus all

The Pugilist (Japanese name Cestus) 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.

Legendary NamesEdit

Barrage BrawlerEdit

The Barrage Brawler 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.

  • Strengths: Best source of a wide variety of binds for shutting down single enemies. Incredible damage output to a fully bound enemy.
  • Weaknesses: Poor crowd control capability. Focus on the entire binding skill tree is skill point intensive.
