A Tribal Grappler.

"Tribal Grapplers use their own fists as weapons. They have high agility similar to Twin Blades and possess high HP. However, their low defense value makes it crucial to pay attention in battle."
The World R:2 Official Site. —

Tribal Grappler (拳術士, Kenjutsu-shi) is a class in The World R:2. They are similar to the Knuckle Masters from R:1. Tribal Grapplers wield Gauntlets in battle. These can range from lightweight gloves, to oversized, paw-like gauntlets.


This class has the advantage of a very high attack speed, allowing it to achieve normal Rengeki extremely fast, in addition to very high HP. Their defense, however, is very low. They also have a very limited repertoire of arts, having only 2 skills available as of Rebirth.


See Gauntlets.
