The Destroyer is an axe-wielding melee class that specializes in powerful crowd controls, decent party support, and solid, consistent damage. Relentless and brutal, Destroyers are well known for their mobility and large variety of stuns, dazes, knockdowns, as well as their infamous ability to grapple and lift their opponents. As such, they are considered one of the primary frontline classes, always in the face of the enemy and ready to change the flow of battle. To say that the Destroyer's attack patterns lack elegance and complexity would be a complete misnomer; they hardly have a pattern to begin with. Instead, Destroyers favor a completely straightforward rule of combat: Constantly chop away at the enemy's health and look for opportunities to crowd control them. For this reason, one may find themselves interested in picking a Destroyer if they enjoy domination above all else. The Destroyer is limited to the Gon race only.

Although Destroyers are quick and easy to pick up, they require a great deal of dedication and patience (or money) in order to realize their full damage potential, due to some end-game, high-expense skill books. Early on, Destroyers enjoy the benefits of a simple "spin-to-win" ability that boosts their maneuverability and defense. Furthermore, if they feel like it, Destroyers may use a limited variety of defense, movement speed, and recovery buffs for their party and even literally carry a dying ally to safety. Therefore, Destroyers may choose to fulfill a support-DPS, off-tank, or full DPS role as they like.

Ressource Mechanic[edit | edit source]

The Destroyer uses an altered version of the Focus ressource, while it does work like the classic Focus, it has a limit of 100 and grow when the Destroyer is hit.
