    Marauder

    Mod Edit: Updated 8/30/10, credit for the 30+ abilities goes to Gulkeeva.

    Lust for Destruction

    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.

    This is the most complete skill listing I have from phases 2 + 3.

    They are all incomplete in some way, so if you see anything wrong or have info I don't, let me know and I'll correct them.

    Skills & Traits you buy with Marks:

    Spoiler: show


    A note on the skills/traits:
    The skills that increase an Attribute temporarily on the gathering classes cannot be used on the combat classes.
    So far, each combat class has 2 skills, a level 20 one and a level 40 one. The skills cost zero TP, zero MP and cost no Action Points to equip.
    The skills that say "Increase TP generation" do less damage than a normal attack but give 150-200% more TP.
    The traits that grant class affinity are designed to increase the effectiveness of your cross class skills. Equipping the CON affinity trait on another class will boost the effectiveness of the Cure spells for example.
    The Attribute swap traits can be used to reduce the diminishing returns penalty when buying your stats.

    For example:

    You buy the +10 STR to +10 INT trait.

    Your STR is 40, your INT is 15.

    If you put 10 allocation points into STR your STR will now be 45 (it costs two points to raise a STAT beyond 40).

    However, if you put 10 points into INT, and equipped the trait, your STR will be 50, and your INT still 15.

    You get 5 more points of STR for the same allocation point cost, and have the advantage of already having some INT should you swap to a mage class.

    With weapon skills like Iron Tempest that have an mp cost component, has anyone noticed if the damage is modified by INT as well as STR?

    I'd never get my hopes up with elemental weapon skills, while there is a decent chance that it would have a typically mage stat modifier, based on XI's elemental WS history and the how Red Lotus has looked so far in beta, it probably is going to still suck.

    I pray they will finally implement elemental alignments properly and effectively enough to make elemental-anything useful in a situation that matters. The only thing they got right before was Puks and Prime Avatars.

    Skull sunder OP imo, does about 20~30 less dmg, but 1/2 the stam and tp cost of the 1k TP moves. Plus the Dot, and possible AoE if in steadfast sooooo.........

    Well unless I wooshed yesterday myself, I could have sworn the only TP information I saw for Skull Sunder yesterday was in Loaar's post, which says that it's 1000 TP. I'm looking at the original post now and seeing the TP information, so maybe I wooshed.

    Can anyone share some insight with the pros and cons of Marauder? What are they good at and vice versa?

    In open beta, I've taken Marauder to Rank 10 and Lancer to Rank 13 thus far.

    Marauders have a very strong selection of AoE abilities for both damage and enmity. What largely sets their AoE weaponskills apart from others' is the fact that many of them are non-directional, which removes some guesswork and margin of error from targeting. They can also indirectly increase accuracy by lowering a target's evasion, which benefits the entire party. Skull Sunder is a great 500 TP weaponskill.

    At a brief glance, their single-target DPS may not pan out so well, depending on how well Storm's Path and Maim stack up against other melee disciplines' weaponskills.

    My friend keeps getting himself killed with all their AOE abilities, but in the job's defense he's usually high so he probably isn't paying close attention to his surroundings. I had a lot of fun on Marauder personally, felt like a strong solid job. Bloodbath wasn't terribly impressive, especially when your next ability misses...

    Accuracy has been terrible for me even with a reasonable investment in DEX; I don't know if it's a property of the job or the current version of the combat system.

    The AoE attacks have helped immensely in guildleves though, especially the ones that spawn multiple mobs of the same type together in a party (like the Bloodshore one with groups of 1 Roseling + 5 beetles/ladybugs). You can usually avoid aggroing other things with your AoE attacks once you get a sense of how far they hit, it's mostly annoying right now due to the AI they have on passive mobs, which sometimes follow you (without attacking you) for no apparent reason.

    The damage on single target attacks has been pretty good too. The only mobs I've had a problem with so far are strong, high defense ones, like wights and humanoid enemies (thieves, assassins, etc).

    Dunno, so far after playing marauder, lancer, pugilist and gladiator to level 8-13, I feel most comfortable with marauder (12 now). Also they are on 2 separate characters so I haven't got to use all the "sub" skills from other jobs, mara's being paired with gladiator job on my highland hyur character. I don't know why, but for example when soloing dodos at the 10+ levels, I felt that it was MUCH easier on marauder than on pugilist for example. Because of the damage output the birds go down much faster. Also skull sunder seems to be quite an amazing skill for it's level, I mean 500tp cost and 5sec cooldown and it does usually more damage than trunksplitter for example and apparently has some sort of damage over time debuff aswell? That's just great.

    To add to that this job has many AoE skills that are great against levemob parties for example, one of the moves you can just spam like light strike, that being broad swing. Bloodbath is also great move for curing yourself when you pair it up with some heavy damage move, I usually do that with skull sunder, trunksplitter works well for the purpose as well. All in all this has been a great and fun job for me to play so far, aside from the random whiffstreaks every now and then, but it doesn't seem to be as big problem as some people seem to think. I've been rising STR and DEX quite equally, VIT not being very far from those two.
