Notable Champions[]


  • The specialization is useful for granting extra buffs to the party. War Cry is useful for reducing incoming damage, causing enemies who fail its check to take penalties to hit. After learning Superiority the attack penalty is augmented by a knockdown, which is useful for crowd control. At the same time the bonus defense from Rally grants extra damage resistance to allies. When Motivate is learned an attack bonus is added to Rally. When used to its full potential the Champion is a great asset to any party.
