Swordsman job classes are disciples and masters of the sword, which is their namesake. They are known to be able to take large amounts of damage without being defeated too easily.
While it's easy to learn the skills of a Swordsman, it's very difficult to master the Way of the Sword.
Swordsmen (and swordswomen) learn swordsmanship at a young age, growing their minds and bodies as the start being dedicated to the sword. This is where a true warrior is born.
Swordsmen are the masters of the sword as they are strong both offensively and defensively, conquering battlefields and providing protection for teammates. Swordsmen do not demonstrate physical strength unwillingly to their enemies, for that is not the way of a Swordsman.
Swordsmen and swordswomen have been around for ages, dating back to the former part of the Age of Gods. They have mainly been employed by lords and kings for protection, although a swordsman that operates alone is not unheard of.
Swordsmen (and Swordswomen) can choose to become either a Warrior or a Knight.
Swordsman classes have exclusive mounts designated for them. Unlike other classes, Swordsman classes can attack from their mounts. The main mount is the Peco Peco, although Swordsmen can later gain access to the Ferus or the Gryphon depending on what job path they take.
