The Trickster Class provides an excellent combination of combat and utility.

Tricksters are powerful and clever swordsman, who can use either their magic or sword fighting abilities to help their team.

Tricksters are somewhat like Thieves, as their high Skill serves as their main strong point.

Being able to use Staves, Tricksters have acquired high Resistance and Magic as well.
