DQIX - Armamentalist

Armamentalist is a vocation in IX, and is an advanced vocation similar to Mage, but it is actually more like the warrior class. An armamentalist is a powerful proponents of the formidable Fource, they can can wield Staff wands, DQ9BowIcon bows, Sword swords and shields, while also weakening enemies with a variety of status effects. However, their spells do not deal damage to foes, and they aren't very good at directly damaging enemies along with having subpar defenses. They have more MP than both the Warrior and Gladiator combined. With the proper skill sets learned from other jobs they become great all rounders. They are also faster than Warriors and Gladiators. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Voice of Experience," which increases the EXP payout after battle by a random rate (1.1%-1.9%).

The Armamentalist's class-unique skill is Fource. The Fource skill tree provides many bonuses to health, defense, strength, and attack. You will also unlock different Fources, (e.g., Fire Fource) that the Armamentalist can imbue themselves or other party members with elemental attributes, raising their attack and defense as well as allowing them to deal damage based on the corresponding element of the used Fource. Multiple can be used on a character at a time, unless the level 40 Quest for the Armamentalist is completed, which grants an item that allows all party members to gain the effects of a selected Fource.

Unlockable by completing the following quest:
