Mercenary is one of the three careers from which Markus Kruber can choose.

This career is the first one available, while Huntsman and Foot Knight are available through leveling up.

Description[edit | edit source]

When Saltzpyre recruited Kruber for his retinue, it was the former State Trooper’s first venture as a Mercenary. The new profession lit a fire within him, and a desire awoke to one day lead a company of his own as a Mercenary Captain. Perhaps the events in Helmgart will lead him down this path.

In battle, the Mercenary is a versatile fighter with armour balanced to provide ample protection while not severely restricting mobility. He is capable of both close quarters mayhem and shredding the enemy with ranged fire.
