Overview & Review- Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker Job

yakuza like a dragon breaker

In Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker is one of the more thematically inventive jobs. Its costume is cool, its animations are cool, and it’s a decently powerful job in its own right, which gets several attacks with occasionally useful secondary effects.

In terms of classic RPG archetypes, Breaker is most similar to a Monk.

The Breaker job is capable of raising its own stats as it attacks, but in practice the only one of these skills that’s at all useful is the one that raises your Attack, and even then, it loses its utility towards the end of the game as just spamming stronger physical attacks is much more effective.

However, by the time the Breaker’s interesting stat boost attacks start to fall off, it learns a powerful target-all Essence-level attack that not only ends fights quickly, but restores your party’s HP by a small but noticeable amount.

Breaker is a pretty reliable job overall and it’s a great job to switch your physical damage dealers to after they’ve mastered their first job, thanks to its large amount of Attack and Agility bonuses. It also makes a great main job for any character whose unique job is somewhat lacking, like Joon-gi Han and Adachi.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker Best Weapon

The best weapon for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker job is called the Soul Anklet EX EX. Like all the best weapons, it’s obtained by upgrading a low level base weapon at the Romance Workshop in the Commercial District in Ijincho.

The base weapon you need is the Red Anklet, which you can buy at the Batting Cages in Northwest Ijincho for 500 points.

To finish upgrading the weapon, you need a Beat Anklet, which you can repeatedly win from the 22nd Floor of the Sotenbori Battle Arena.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker Accessory

The Job Experience accessory for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker Job is pretty easy to obtain. It’s called the Def Boom Box. You can get one from Substory 30. Unfortunately, there’s only one Def Boom Box available in the game, so the Breaker job can only boost its Job Experience up 1.5x.

Character Skills – Yakuza Like a Dragon Breaker Job

Every job in Yakuza Like a Dragon has two specific Character Skills, which, once learned, can be used by that character no matter which job class they’ve been assigned.

For the Breaker job, the character skills are:

Atlas Hold: Deal unblockable damage to an enemy with repeated kicks from a handstand. May boost your own Defense.

Double Hatchet: Damage an enemy with repeated flipkicks. May boost your own Magic.

The concept of the Breaker skills is good, but unfortunately the two skills you learn as Character Skills aren’t the ones you’d want to learn. Of them, Atlas Hold is probably the better of the two, even though it’s weaker.

If you’re a mage, you don’t want to waste multiple turns performing a weak physical attack that may (key word) boost your Magic attack. Even if you get it on the first try, the Magic bonus is so modest it would take probably 5-10 turns to make up the difference.

For a physical character, there may be some utility in decreasing your damage slightly for a few turns in order to boost your defense, but having played this game for well over a hundred hours, I’ve seen no evidence of any kind of situation where that would be useful or required.
