Overview & Review- Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician Job

The Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician job has several valuable support abilities and a unique “voltage” mechanic which differentiates it from other classes.

In terms of classic RPG archetypes, Musician is most similar to a Bard.

To start off with, Musician has one of the most useful Character Skills in the game, “Endless Desire”, which you can, and absolutely should, pick up by leveling at least one character to Musician job level 4. “Endless Desire” casts Regeneration on your entire party, and it comes in handy throughout the game.

Aside from that, Musician provides a lot of interesting utility throughout most of the game. It doesn’t really hold up as an endgame class, but it’s not terrible either thanks to its final target-all Essence skill, and throughout the rest of the game its buffs generally come in handy.

It can debuff Attack and Defense for all enemies, as well as raise the entire party’s Defense. It can cast Regeneration on the whole party. With the Musician’s ultimate weapon equipped, its effects last a very long time.

Musician’s offensive skills don’t do an incredible amount of damage, but they help out, and it gets both magical and physical damage to help it cut through resistances.

Its stat bonuses, MP and Dexterity, are two of the least desirable stat bonuses, which is a pretty big deal when it comes to tackling the True Final Millennium Tower.

Ultimately Musician is kind of middle of the road and what I’d recommend is picking up “Endless Desire” and then turning your character into one of the better classes, but it’s a fun class that provides some unique utility and you might want to include it in your party for that reason.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician Best Weapon

The best weapon for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician job is called the The Symphonic 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 Vintage Guitar, which you can get from the Can Quest Prize Shop for 3,000 points, find randomly in silver safes in the Yokohama Underground, or earn as a reward from the Part-time Hero quest “Takedown: Assassin”.

To finish upgrading the weapon, you need a Violence Guitar, which can win repeatedly from the 20th Floor of the Sotenbori Battle Arena.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician Accessory

The Job Experience accessory for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician Job is pretty easy to obtain. It’s called the Weathered Music Score. You can buy as many as you like from the Casino in Ijincho’s Chinatown District for 1,500 points each.

Since you can obtain multiple Weathered Music Scores, Musician is able to equip two at once to boost its job experience by 2x.

Character Skills – Yakuza Like a Dragon Musician 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 Musician job, the character skills are:

“Endless Desire”: Play a song that speaks of how precious–and perhaps, absurd–it is to live and love. Gradually recovers all allies’ HP and may raise your voltage.

“Be My Shelter”: Absorb an enemy’s MP with a song that makes them want to support you. May raise your voltage.

“Be My Shelter” isn’t particularly useful, but “Endless Desire” is one of the best Character Skills in the game. It’s incredibly easy to acquire, since it’s available at job level 4, and its effect is powerful throughout the game. It grants Regeneration to all party members, which lasts a long time and costs very little mana.

“Endless Desire” is one of the only healing skills available to male party members, and is probably the best one overall outside of Kasuga’s unique Hero-specific healing skills. Highly recommended you dip into Musician on at least one character to pick it up.
