Spellcasters who annihilate enemies with their powerful abilities. Ether Blast II is great against mobs and bosses alike. Venom doesn't deal much damage but the Poison effect can be useful against enemies who are resistant to normal attacks and most abilities. Focus is an essential ability that gives Hermits a massive boost in their damage output. Focus can be stacked up to 10 times, but the damage caps would likely be reached after 4 to 6 times. Bounce is a variation of Sidewinder's Killstreak and is not a bad ability to pick for the EX slot. Chalk is not as good as it sounds, mostly because a large portion of the game is fighting single bosses. Hermits can be rather slow at building up the Ougi Gauge, so set up the party accordingly. Overall, Hermit is a very solid job that takes some time to get ready but rewards its users with some very impressive damage.
