After years at sea, the Viking has learned to endure the greatest assaults. With a swing of his mighty axe, he can hit up to 3 enemies in a row, and his Ice Ridge Axe is even more potent than Freezing Axe.
You can have up to 1 of this mercenary.
A Northern Viking is a pretty good merc at low levels (e.g. < level 120), especially when you consider that he has already completed all standard upgrades up to level 100, so the first upgrade he will need is at 120 (by when you will probably have a better merc in your formation to replace him).
Most importantly, a Northern Viking has much better Magic Defense than a regular Viking, whose Magic Defense is awful, but it's still not very high. The Northern Viking can also use Ice Ridge Axe in addition (or instead of) Freezing Axe; Ice Ridge Axe is essentially and upgraded version of Freezing Axe.
(At level 100)
Basic Attack Edit
- Melee Target and Neighbors
- Action Power: 50-65
- Action Power raised by Vacancy: 10% (up to 3 vacancies)
- The Viking can be recruited as a Northern Viking (upgraded Viking) via a Northern Viking Summon Marble (No Trade) that is received at the end of the Nest of Insects quest line. It requires Main Character level 32 to use. By using this orb, you will not need to do the Northern Viking upgrade quest line after the Viking hits level 100, saving you some gold and time (although I always found that quest line to be pretty fun).

A strike of desperation while on the verge of death. The attack puts a strain on your Action Power, delaying your next turn.
Freeze an enemy for some time with a blast of ice from your axe.
This magic allows to lock up your enemies in an ice ridge by drawing freezing power from the core of the earth.
