Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria[]


Light Warriors of Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria are quick and accurate in their attacks, and can string together high combos (up to twelve hits). One of their main jobs is to rack up combos. With high AGL, and above average for the other stats, the Light Warrior is an integral part of any team. While the damage they deal is lesser than that of a Heavy Warrior or Archer, they have access to weapons with innate Critical Skills and a large array of elemental weaponry. They also have access to a good range of armors, can launch enemies and can cast Menu Magic, most of which is healing or defense orientated. This class is female-exclusive.
