Samurai (FF14)

This page remains incomplete.


Samurai can be unlocked after reaching level 50 in another job, and it requires the Stormblood expansion. It starts at level 50.

Samurai has two separate job gauges, the Sen gauge and the Kenki gauge. Sen gauge takes the form of three symbols, the Setsu (雪 meaning 'snow'), Getsu (月 meaning 'moon') and Ka (花 meaning 'flower') symbols. Depending on how many of these are lit up, different weaponskills are executed when the ability Iaijutsu is used. Note that on lower levels, not all of the available weaponskills for Iaijutsu have been learnt yet.
The Kenki (剣気 meaning 'sword energy') gauge takes the form of a sword that fills with red when Kenki accumulates. This can then be used to execute various Hissatsu (必殺剣 [hissatsuken], also translated as Bushido in previous titles) skills.
