FFXIV - Disciples of War - Gladiator
Gladiators specialize in the handling of all manner of one–handed blades, from daggers to longswords, be they single– or double–edged, straight or curved. A defining characteristic of the guild is its emphasis on diverse combat tactics, training its members to bring their martial skills to bear in any situation.
As such, there are practitioners who marry sword with shield, seeking to defend their fellow companions. Others opt for an empty off hand, choosing instead to focus entirely on their sword arm. The gladiator's proficiency with blades also extends to those hurled at range, such as throwing knives.
Below is a list of current actions and traits for the Gladiator class.





By completting quests the Gladiator can become a Paladin.

As a Gladiator you should be focusing on VIT as this increases HP. STR should also be considered if you are playing as an off tank.


Abilities


Abilities are actions that the Gladiator can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Gladiator actions are exclusive to that job.
