The Samurai wears a full red suit of samurai armor, topped with three golden horns on his helmet. The job is unlocked at the beginning of the game, but must be changed over to inside a Temple.
The Samurai bears a striking resemblance to the Fighter and Brave jobs, focusing on a much more physical-oriented play style.
What distinguishes it between the others is the trend of VIT and defensive abilities over POW or INT. Even MEN is catered for, providing some counter for magical enemies that would go unnoticed by the others.
Weapon bonuses, along with the high defensive bonuses, allow the Spear to see some use. Rather than avoid damage, a spear user can consistently attack and absorb reduced damage from enemies, allowing for consistent and high damage per second.
