Fighters combine discipline with martial skills to become the best pure warriors on the planet. Fighters can be stalwart defenders of those in need, cruel marauders, or brave adventurers. They can be noble champions, or cold-hearted killers, amongst other things.

PLAYING A FIGHTER Edit

Fighters are primarily tanks. They prefer to be at the front in combat; taking the heavy brunt for their comrades and providing cover for them when needed. They rely heavily on melee combat rather than ranged combat, and they are one of the few classes that are proficient in heavy armour, which provides the best boost to Reflex Defence than any other armour type.

EXAMPLES OF FIGHTERS IN FINAL FANTASY VII Edit

GAME RULE INFORMATION Edit

Fighters have the following game statistics.

ABILITIES Edit

Since a fighter specialises in close-combat brawling, their most important ability score is Strength, followed closely by Constitution. Don’t underestimate the importance of Intelligence, however, since many of a fighter’s useful skills are based on this ability.

HIT POINTS Edit

Fighters begin play at 1st level with a number of hit points equal to 12 + their Constitution score. At each level after 1st, fighters gain 1d12 hit points + their Constitution modifier.

MAGIC POINTS Edit

Fighters begin play at 1st level with a number of magic points equal to their Intelligence score. At each level after 1st, fighters gain 1d3 magic points + their Intelligence modifier.

CLASS SKILLS Edit

The Fighter’s list of class skills, along with their associated abilities, are as follows:

Acrobatics (Dex), Athletics (Str), Knowledge* (Int), Melee Strike (Str), Stealth (Dex), Treat Injury (Wis)

*This skill actually encompasses a number of unrelated skills. Each time this skill is learned, a specific category must also be chosen. Examples include Knowledge (bureaucracy) and Knowledge (world lore).

Skill Points at 1st level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4.

Skill Points at each additional level: 4 + Int modifier.

CLASS FEATURES Edit

All of the following are features of the fighter class.

ARMOUR PROFICIENCY Edit

As a fighter, you gain proficiency with the following types of armour: Armlets, Light, and Heavy.

DEFENCE BONUSES Edit

At 11th level, the class bonus to Defences increase to +2 to Reflex and Fortitude, and +4 to Magic.

FIGHTER SPECIALISATION Edit

At 1st level, you select one of the following specialist abilities and, once selected, cannot be changed.

DUAL WEAPON SPECIALIST Edit

You have picked up skills associated with two-weapon fighting and can utilise them effectively.

Effect: When making a Melee Strike check to attack with your main weapon, you can follow up with your secondary weapon as a swift action. You receive a -5 penalty to Melee Strike checks when attacking with your secondary weapon, instead of the normal -10 penalty.

Penalty: When attacking with your secondary weapon, if your Melee Strike check misses the target’s Reflex Defence, the target only receives half damage of your main weapon (rounded down).

Special: 11th level: Penalty to secondary weapon’s attack is reduced to -3.

21st level: Penalty to secondary weapon’s attack is reduced to -1.

31st level: Penalty to secondary weapon’s attack becomes a +1 bonus.

41st level: Penalty to secondary weapon’s attack becomes a +3 bonus.

GREATER WEAPON SPECIALIST Edit

You are gifted at wielding weapons that many would have a struggle carrying.

Effect: When using one hand to wield a large-size melee weapon or bigger, you do not suffer the normal encumbrance penalty to Melee Strike checks. In addition, you gain a +3 class bonus to damage rolls with said weapon.

Penalty: If you fail your Melee Strike check by 5 or more, you provoke an attack of opportunity from your intended target.

Special: 11th level: Class bonus to damage rolls increase to +6.

21st level: Class bonus to damage rolls increase to +9.

31st level: Class bonus to damage rolls increase to +12.

41st level: Class bonus to damage rolls increase to +15.

FIGHTER’S MARK Edit

Once per encounter, starting at 1st level, you can designate one enemy target as your mark. You can only mark one target at a time. While a target is marked, he/she is granted combat advantage against you. If a marked target attacks an ally other than you, he/she gets a -5 penalty to the attack. When a marked target chooses to attack you or cast a spell against you, you gain a +2 bonus to your Reflex Defence and Magic Defence respectively.

At 3rd level, and every eight levels thereafter (11th, 19th, 27th, 35th, and 43rd), you can use Fighter’s Mark one additional time per encounter. Doing so, however, removes the mark on the previous target as you cannot have two or more targets marked at the same time. The mark lasts until either the end of the encounter, or when the marked target becomes unconscious or dies.

WEAPON PROFICIENCY Edit

At 1st level, you gain proficiency with swords, and you gain a +2 class bonus when making attacks with weapons belonging to that weapon group. The class bonus increases to +5 at 15th level, +7 at 30th level, and +10 at 45th level.

At 1st level, you gain a bonus feat. You gain one additional feat at 2nd level, and every four levels thereafter (6th, 10th, 14th, 18th, etc.), and you must meet the prerequisites of the selected feat (if any).

ABILITY SCORE INCREASE Edit

Starting at 4th level, you can choose to either permanently increase one ability score of your choice by 2 points or permanently increase two ability scores of your choice by 1 each.

You can increase your ability scores again at 8th level, then at every four levels thereafter (12th, 16th, 20th, etc.).

FIGHTER TECHNIQUE Edit

At 3rd level, and every four levels thereafter (7th, 11th, 15th, 19th, etc.), you gain a fighter technique. The technique must be selected from those presented below and, once chosen, cannot be changed.
