Masurao All

The Masurao is one of the new classes in Etrian Odyssey V. They focus on speed and power while sacrificing defense (much like the Ronin, Shogun, and Bushi classes of previous iterations).

Legendary TitlesEdit

Blade DancerEdit

The Blade Dancer has the ability to wield up to four katanas at once, with skills that hit more times depending on how many katanas they choose to wield. Naturally, they forsake even more of their defenses as they devote their equipment slots to weaponry, and gain a stronger Strength and Agility growth.

  • Strengths: Unparalleled physical damage. Building wisely around Hell Slash results in a combo that can devastate bosses and FOEs.
  • Weaknesses: The most fragile class in the game, even if supplemented with Vitality/Wisdom boosting katanas. Upgrading weaponry is also far more costly than upgrading armor.

Blade MasterEdit

The Blade Master specializes in fighting with one katana. Many of their sword skills mainly involve being skilled at fighting one-on-one, to the point where they can deliver deadly critical hits even with their katana skills, and enjoy a more well-rounded stat growth.

  • Strengths: Access to armor leads to reasonable durability for general game progress without sacrificing too much on damage output. Incredible damage numbers with a critical hit.
  • Weaknesses: Underwhelming crowd control capability. Skills can be TP-intensive despite access to TP Up.
