|Weapons||Blade, Chaos Magic|
The Martial Artist is an elusive tanking master. She uses both Chaos Magic and Blades to Evade her enemies, and clever attacks so that they focus their Hate on her instead of her teammates. The Martial Artist has excellent defenses, and the effort needed to take her down is immense.
The Deck is made for tanking. It has very little damage output on its own, and is therefore best suited in a group. The Martial Artist uses Evades to avoid being hit, and with several such strong defenses to choose from the Deck is very good at tanking strong dungeon bosses.
