Dissidia Final Fantasy NT: What Each Character Class Means and What They Do

What Each Character Class Means in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT switches up an integral piece of the series’ systems, this time categorizing all of its characters into four different classes. Each class has a specific function in battle that it focuses on, and comes with its own strengths and weaknesses. The classes are Vanguard, Assassin, Marksman, and Specialist. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s combat actually functions on a rock-paper-scissors system, where each class is weak to another except for Specialist, who isn’t weak against anything but is proficient against all classes if not exceptional. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s triangle works with Assassins being strong against Marksman, Marksman strong over Vanguard, and Vanguard being strong against Assassins.

Assassins are focused on high mobility and attack speed, Marksmen have the ability to attack from long-rang, Vanguards are focused on deliberate and powerful attacks, and Specialists each come equipped with unique battle traits.

Because of these weaknesses it’s important to try and have a well-balanced team that’s not weak to one type of class, although this can be difficult if playing random matches. Keep in mind, however, that you can still win with a class that’s weak to another, you’ll just be at a bit of a disadvantage. Here’s a list of how the characters breakdown in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT in terms of classes, so make sure to be familiar with where each one falls.
