Viper’s Stat priority & weapon usage
The Viper Job is a job class that is a fast-paced melee DPS that uses two swords that can transform, similar to the weapons in Bloodborne. The weapons transform into a single two-handed weapon.
In order to play this class, you’ll need to focus on Dexterity as a stat for Viper. They can deliver fast-light attacks and a barrage of slashes to the enemy. However, once their weapon is transformed, the attacks are heftier and can do some significant damage to an enemy.
They can also boost their damage temporarily by giving themselves a buff which is indicated by a blue aura.
This Job won’t have any extra requirements to unlock them other than owning Dawntrail and having one other character at level 80.
Viper’s Limit Breaks
Viper has the same Limit Breaks available to other melee classes, so you won’t have to get used to anything different, except the level three Limit Break which has yet to be announced.
Delivers an attack to a single target
Delivers an attack to a single target, dealing 2.2x the damage of Braver
Delivers an attack to a single target, dealing 3.5x the damage of Braver
That’s everything we know so far about the Viper Job in FFXIV.
