Soldier is primarily a physical attack job, though a couple skills are magic-based. Soldiers use the momentum from the damage that they recieve to surpass their physical limitations and deal more powerful attacks; most Soldier abilities increase in power when the user has low HP. Soldier abilities require a sword, knightsword, katana or materiablade to use. They are most effective with a materiablade.
Two of soldier's attacks, Blade Beam and Cherry Blossom, deal strength-based magical damage. Damage for these skills is calculated using strength, not wisdom, but is also improved by equipment and buffs that improve your magic attack power. Your enemy's magical defense, not physical defense, is used to determine how much damage you do with these skills.
In years past, Shinra's organization of genetically enhanced supersoldiers, known as SOLDIER, was made up of powerful warriors who were exposed to mako energy, and injected with cells from the alien being called Jenova. One of the greatest SOLDIERs of Shinra passed down his blade to Cloud Strife on the outskirts of the city of Midgar, which today lies in ruins. Now, Shinra seeks to uncover the secret laboratories of its own scientists in order to start this process again and create new members of SOLDIER, but Cloud is watching...
Players who have completed "Don't Step on the Flowers!" and "Yeowza!" can seek out Cloud Strife in Midgar, Sector 6, after reaching level 50 and undertake the mission to earn access to become a SOLDIER.
