Combat Talent Strategy[edit | edit source]

Unstoppable Force[edit | edit source]

An incredible defensive buff. This pairs very nicely with a Swordsman job that uses Sharp Counter and other buffing moves to create a front-line tank capable of taking hits and resisting debuffs. Armor with strong damage soak will be magnified more than armor that focuses on dodging.

Bloodletting Blow[edit | edit source]

One of the more powerful Damage over Time attacks in the game. It works well on enemy Swordsmen in position 2 that you can knock out of attack range, potentially wasting their next action as they reposition while letting the bleeding finish them off. Be wary, however, as enemy Swordsmen can use their Blade Skill to help parry this melee attack.

Fervor[edit | edit source]

Fervor lends itself to an interesting strategy where you rely on your Zealot to remove debuffs instead of a healer job such as the Combat Medic. Being able to clear debuffs and give a small buff to three of your combat crew at the same time shouldn't be underestimated.

Infliction Rage[edit | edit source]

This on-init talent will continually refill the Zealot's morale while granting a universally useful buff. The bonus armor stacks with Unstoppable Force making a Zealot using both a very hard target to harm without high penetration weapons. If you are using both, you should strongly consider using high damage soak armor instead of high evasion armor.
