Barrage Brawler specializes in binds. This class has various skills to inflict binds and perform damage based on how many parts of the enemy are or are not bound. Double Punch gives a dice roll for a free second binding use of Concussion, Arm Crusher, Leg Bind, Corkscrew, or Cross Counter if the first hit fails to bind the enemy. Corkscrew may inflict paralysis, Lash Out deals multiple hit damage based on how many hits the user managed to land last turn, Cross Counter performs a counterattack and tries to bind body part used by the attacker, Breather removes all binds and ailments and increases next-turn’s damage, Fault Blocker increases bind and ailment resistance for the user’s row, and Clinch attempts to inflict Head/Arm/Leg binds to one enemy and the user in a single move.

Wilting Miasma reduces enemies' resistance toward binds/ailments so both of Harbinger’s Mastery classes are great additions to the team, not to mention that Harbingers can inflict ailments to empower Leading Blow. Similarly, Graced Poisoner's vast array of ailment-inflicting Smoke skills aid the Barrage Brawler by empowering Leading Blow. A Harbinger and/or Graced Poisoner combined with a Barrage Brawler are very well equipped to fully “lockdown” a FOE/Boss with various debilitating ailments and multiple bound party parts making them almost helpless for what can be the majority of or the entire duration of a battle.

With the assumption of rested character with around 30 skill points, spend 1 point for each Concussion, Arm Crusher, Leg Bind, Corkscrew, Double Punch, Status ATK Up, then maximize Overexertion and Cross Counter. The other combo will be (Overexertion) - Clinch - Breather - Leading Blow, but it requires many skill points to learn. Upgrade any or most of the former skills before trying to perform the combo.

Contributed by Enfinete:

There are 2 paths available:

  • Damage-focused: should go for Leading Blow path. One-Two Punch can still help to get bind in, or we can even have another unit doing the binding for Barrage Pug.
    • 30 SP: going for Leading Blow right away doesn’t actually make sense SP-wise. Leading Blow is too much of SP hog for this to happen this early; we can still build towards it but not sure if it’s within the given scope of 30 SP.
  • Bind-focused: Clinch (3 part) or single part (Double Punch + individual punches).
    • Support-oriented: Clinch 10, Status ATK Up 1, Blood Wrath 1, Overexertion 10, Black Mist 1, Cardio 1 = 30 SP for binding 3 parts via Clinch and physical attack buff via Overexertion.

Build notes:

  • I believe that the Black Mist Union skill is a must have, someone in your party should have this skill if the Binding Pug does not. Chain Blast Union skill is also a good back-up skill, I sometimes use Chain Blast on the 2nd turn if Black Mist and the Binding Pug had subpar results on the 1st turn.
  • I’ve seen someone post that equipping the Arm Bind Resist accessory (Ominous Gloves) will prevent the Pugilist from Binding their own arms when using Clinch, allowing you to immediately start on attacking without a turn spent on the Breather. Players may weigh equipping this accessory against the LUCK+TP accessories.
  • For all builds Corkscrew has the lowest Priority of the single target punches because: 1) It isn't triggered by One-Two Punch, 2) Hopefully you have another character to use ailment skills with. Don't ignore completely Corkscrew though, it contributes to Leading Blow damage.

My build advice is just taking it further from where Enfinete left off:

Support Pug
Start [Breather (3) > Fault Blocker (3) > Clinch (10) > Blood Wrath (1) > Overexertion (10) > Status ATK Up (1) > Black Mist Union Skill(1) > Cardio Racial Skill (1)]

Then Status ATK Up (10) or work towards Leading Blow.

  • This is a FOE/Boss focused build, simply for throwing Overexertion on your biggest damage character before or after doing Black Mist + Wilting Miasma (if there is a Harbinger) + Clinch on the enemy. Keep in mind that you cannot use Overexertion if you are inflicted by Head Bind.

Middle Ground

Start [ Blood Wrath (1) > Overexertion (10) > Status ATK Up (1) > Concussion (3) > Arm Crusher (3) > Low Blow(3) > One-Two Punch (5) > Corkscrew (2) > Leading Blow (1) > Black Mist Union Skill (1)] Cardio Racial Skill (1) and Double Punch (1) should be leveled ASAP, you may also consider delaying Leading blow for them.

Then Keep your Single Punch skills between 4,5 or 9, One-Two Punch at 5 or 9, and Leading Blow at 4 until have the TP pool to spam skills increase them. Status ATK Up leveled as you wish. Even working towards Clinch is an option.

  • This is basically the reverse of the build above. You'll do more damage than the Support build, have the option of using of Overexertion on yourself, and have an much easier time handling random battles. The obvious downside is you'll be less reliable in quickly getting full binds (complete shutdown) and setting up 5 Leading Blows on FOES/Bosses.

Stand Alone Pug

Start [Status ATK Up (1) > Concussion (3) >Arm Crusher (3) > Low Blow (3) > One-Two Punch (9) > Corkscrew (2) > Leading Blow (4) > Black Mist Union Skill (1) > Cardio Racial Skill (1) > Double Punch (1)]

Optional Breather(1)

Then your choice in further leveling the skills in the Leading Blow tree as your TP pool expands while grabbing useful Union/Gathering/Racial Skills (STR, LUCK), grabbing Overexertion, dabbling in Lash out, or taking the long road to Clinch.

  • This is a Binding Pug build I used in a shutdown party where Pugilist, Shaman, and Blade Dancer were the only sources of damage. The Pugilist had to be able to land binds to keep the Blade Dancer alive, be a powerful source of damage if something was interfering with the Blade Dancer, and use One-Two Punch or Leading Blow to feed Hell Slashes.
