Viking portrait

Viking mercenary

The Viking (Bluetooth) is a grade D Axe Mercenary.

A Northern Viking is an upgraded (to class C) Viking (class D) mercenary.

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 Freezing Axe magic will freeze them in place.

You can have as many of this mercenary as you like.

Assessment Edit

The Viking is an excellent low level mercenary. He is the first merc you can get as a newly started Main Character that can disable a full row of enemy targets. He is also inexpensive to upgrade and skill.

The Viking lacks high enough Magic Defense to be an effective tank at higher levels (say >120). You can upgrade him to a Northern Viking and increase his Magic Defense a little, but it's still not very high. At that point, you will have many other merc choices to replace him as a front row tank. The most typical replacement for the Viking is a Druid.

His Freezing Axe, even though it will not work on bosses above the Bran Castle dungeon is still very useful. If outnumbered, freezing 3 enemies for about 2 turns can be a tide turner. However, his weakness is his very low Action Power gain. Using his Freezing Axe can quite easily prevent him from making another move for a few turns.
