    Profession Overview​

    Brawler is a Core Starter Profession, or Basic Profession, in Restoration III alongside Sharpshooter, Medic, Scout, Entertainer, and Artisan. Brawler is a pure melee combat class that directly stems from the Advanced Professions of Lancer, Berserker, Teras Kasi Artist (TKA), and Fencer. The class has certain Skill Blocks that serve as pre-requisite to Smuggler and Commando. A Brawler fights with their hands and unarmed weapons like knucklers, one-handed melee weapons like swords, two-handed melee weapons like axes, and dual-sided weapons like polearms. A Master Brawler is proficient in all forms of melee weapons.

    This profession requires 72 skill points to master. When creating your character you automatically start out with Novice Brawler unlocked, which takes up 15 skill points like the other Basic Professions.

    XP Requirements to Master Brawler:
    • 91,000 Unarmed XP (granted by defeating enemies in unarmed combat)*
    • 91,000 One-Handed XP (granted by defeating enemies with one-handed weapons)*
    • 91,000 Two-Handed XP (granted by defeating enemies with two-handed weapons)*
    • 91,000 Polearm XP (granted by defeating enemies with polearm weapons)*
    • 35,000 Combat XP (granted along with any weapon XP as 10% of the weapon XP gained)*
    *Note - Completing quests while holding the weapon of your choice will grant XP for that weapon type*



    Base Skills Overview​

    Each branch in Brawler teaches players how to use one of the different melee weapons categories: unarmed, one-handed, two-handed, and polearms. While each branch contains the same basic melee combat specials, you do learn skill mods specific for each weapon category as you move up each branch.
