FFXIV - Disciples of War - Marauder




The marauder is a combat specialist whose weapon of choice is the greataxe—a fearsome arm emblematic of Eorzea's pirates. Their approach to battle is one of brute force, relying on strength and steel to crush enemies and sunder weapons.

They are highly sought after for their ferocity and intimidating presence, and are often employed to hunt down monsters plaguing the land, or to turn the tide of battle between warring nations. Throwing axes such as the francisca supplement the marauders' arsenal, making them fearsome adversaries even at range.

Below is a list of current actions and traits for the Marauder class.

By completting quests the Marauder can become a Warrior.

As a Marauder you should be focusing on VIT as this increases HP. However STR will be beneficial when off tanking.


Abilities


Abilities are actions that the Marauder 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 Marauder actions are exclusive to that job.

On the ps3, Bring up the Actions & Traits screen. Go to the 'Additional' option. You can then select the cross trait you want. Once you've selected them, you can add them to your hot bar.

Bloodbath has changed since this was put up. It now converts 25% of physical damage dealt into HP for the duration of the ability, and not just for the next attack.
