- Gladiators start their adventures in Ul'dah.
Gladiators specialize in the handling of all manner of one-handed blades, from daggers to longswords, be they single- or double-edged, straight or curved. A defining characteristic of the art is emphasis on diverse combat tactics, training its members to bring their martial skills to bear in any situation.
Tracing their roots to the Coliseum, where the roar of the crowd reigns supreme, these melee combatants have learned to seamlessly flow between attack and defense in a dance that delights the eye.
Making use of their skill with the shield, gladiators can also draw the attention and attacks of an enemy upon themselves, thereby protecting their comrades from harm. Others opt for an empty off hand, choosing instead to focus entirely on their sword arm.
In all instances, the ages-old art of the sword makes the gladiator a formidable adversary in any encounter.
