Xenoblade Chronicles X Blast Fencer and Galactic Knight Class Guide

Want to be like a Jedi in Xenoblade Chronicles X? Then, check out this guide on the Galactic Knight class tree!

The Blast Fencer and Galactic Knight classes in Xenoblade Chronicles X are all about Beam damage and lowering enemy resistances to it. They use Photon Sabers as their melee weapon, which are pretty much the same thing as lightsabers.

This class lets you live out your dreams of being a Jedi or Sith in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is focused more on offense than the other Enforcer class, Mastermind. I'll help you master this class by explaining everything about it and giving some tips. Check out my Base Class Guide if you want a general idea on all the classes in the game.

Galactic Knight Tips

This class leans more towards melee damage based on the Arts and Skill, even though it increases both melee and ranged attack.

If you want to take advantage of the stat bonuses and use both melee and ranged, I'd max out another class that has more ranged skills. Dual guns is a good one because you can switch back and forth quickly between melee and ranged.

I'd focus on gear and abilities that increase Beam damage and reduce resistances to Beam damage. Picking skills that focus on this and melee damage is a good idea as well.

This is the only class that has skills that focus solely on Skells, so pick this if you want to use Skells a lot.

That's it for my Blast Fencer and Galactic Knight Class Guide for Xenoblade Chronicles X. Check out my Base Class Guide for tips on any of the other classes.
