Overview & Review- Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid Job

yakuza like a dragon barmaid

Saeko’s Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid job is not particularly good. It’s generally advised that you change her to another job fairly quickly once you unlock the ability to do so.

In terms of classic RPG archetypes, Barmaid is most similar to a Fighter/Mage.

Barmaid’s skillset is pretty confusing. It’s all over the place, and none of what it offers is particularly compelling. Barmaid gains a ton of passive Magic stat bonuses, but it only has one magical spell available to it, which is only a mid-level single-target Fire spell.

Other than that, Barmaid is full of weak self-target only stat buffs and extremely mediocre physical attacks that affect single enemies or small areas. It’s just not good.

None of her class bonuses actually help her class. Like, Barmaid’s best weapon gives a bonus to healing skills. What? Barmaid only learns one garbage-tier self-only healing spell.

The best thing about Barmaid would probably be all the Magic stat bonuses it grants, but unfortunately females in Like a Dragon make terrible mages. They have no access to the Electric element, which is arguably the best element of the three, and all of their classes are focused on physical damage except Hostess, whose spell selection is very limited and only has single-target abilities.

Since Barmaid’s character skills are not worthwhile either, your best bet with Saeko is really to move her to a different job ASAP.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid Best Weapon

The best weapon for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid job is called the Jeweled Bag 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 Casual Bag, which you can buy at Hustle Boutique west of Survive Bar for 2,500 yen.

To finish upgrading the weapon, you need a Leaden Bag, which can be won from Floor 15 of the Sotenbori Battle Arena or bought in Le Marche in Kamurocho for 10 million yen.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid Accessory

The Yakuza Like a Dragon Barmaid unique Job Experience accessory is the Mysterious Blush, which is the reward for Substory 19. Unfortunately, Barmaid is one of the Yakuza Like a Dragon jobs that can’t boost its experience growth to 2x, since there’s only one Mysterious Blush available in the game.

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

Beautician’s Favor: Saeko fixes her makeup, raising her Defense and renewing her image.

Yoga Meditation: Enter a state of relaxation to recover HP and also heal burn and bleeding.

Neither of the Barmaid Character Skills are any good. Spending a turn raising defense is almost never a good use of a turn, especially when other jobs, like Breaker, are capable of attacking and buffing defense at the same time. Yoga Meditation is a mediocre self-heal, which pales in comparison to the single-target heal Character Skill you learn from Idol at job level 4.
