About Jin’s Third Job: Asura
Having been defeated by the Ascendant God, Asura prepared to meet his end. He announced his final holy edict and commanded that once a great warrior was found he should inherit the title of “Asura.” Jin, having heeded the late Asura’s call, took on the rigorous test of improving his mind and his fighting skills. Upon receiving the Asura’s weapon, the Chamma, and the divine teachings, Jin became the Asura: the divine warrior.
With its light weight and long reach the Chamma is a highly efficient weapon that allows for speedy combos and thrusts, allowing one to attack enemies from a safe distance. Currently, Jin compensates for his close range fighting, a rather weak point, with his quick moves and dodges. However, Asura not only possesses speed and long range fighting abilities, he also has a variety of attacks and evasive moves all stemming from his combo attacks.
The combination of the Burning Skill and the Chamma gives Asura a special quality that allows for enhanced destructive power combined with restraint. The Chamma can be unequipped and foes small and large can be fought with fists. However, fighting with one’s bare hands is less powerful than fighting with the Chamma, therefore fighting an enemy with high defense or high attack with the Chamma is much more effective.
By using his basic skills, Asura’s 1st grade attack swings the Chamma twice to gain power for an upward strike that sends enemies into the air, the 2nd grade attack sends the Asura into a flip, slamming his Chamma down with each rotation, ending in a final heavy strike and finally the 3rd grade attack is a windmill attack that strikes multiple times before the Asura plants his Chamma, flies into the air and comes charging back down to earth with destructive force.
