Bandits are quick and accurate Light Class units that are great for speedily closing in on Arcane Class and Support Class units. A key piece of equipment for them is the Revenge Armband, which gives them two counter attacks every time they are damaged. Their Incapacitate Heavy and Strong Incapacitate are especially helpful against Heavy Class gladiators.
Bandits work best on the move with flank and back attacks. Choose skills from the Move category and innate abilities, like Backstabber, before Combos. Defense is very important for Bandits so make Heightened Evasion and Awareness high priorities. Consider using Bandits in groups of two or three to maximize their Group Courage skill.
