FFXIV - Disciples of War - Pugilist





The path of the pugilist is one of incessant training aimed at mastering the traditional techniques of hand–to–hand combat. Though they command formidable power when unarmed, they are wont to use metal, leather, and bone weaponry to maximize their destructive potential.

Their preference for fighting at close–quarters makes negotiating distances an absolute necessity. Many among them accomplish this by using throwing weapons such as the chakram to momentarily daze their enemies while they move in for the kill.

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

By completting quests the Pugilist can become a Monk.

As a Pugilist you should be focusing on STR as this increases melee attack power.


Actions


Actions are skills that the Pugilist 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 Pugilist actions are exclusive to that job.

Role Actions


Since the A Realm Reborn expansion for FFXIV, cross class actions were removed and replaced with the concept of "role" actions. Role actions are more generic as they don't belong to specific classes, but instead to roles such as melee DPS, magic DPS, healer or tank. The Pugilist can equip up to 10 of these.

I'm a little confused by the supposed dodging aspect of this class and Monk. So Featherfoot adds 25% to dodge, but I've tried searching in-game game last beta and there was no dodge/eva stat. There's also nothing on the attributes page here. At first I thought DEX added to it, but no. So how do you know how much dodge you have, exactly? At level 11 after activating Featherfoot I only dodged once each time, most of the time none at all, and 15% is already pretty big from a possibility of 0. But really, I'm just interested in knowing how this is possible counted as giving us a percentage increase but no base number is irritating.

Fists Of Fire is a Monk skill which is why it may sound confusing. Monk comes from Pugilist.

It says that you can't use the Fists skills with Fist of Fire, but that skill isn't listed? Or am I just missing it?
