Waker is a class in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, and can be considered a reimagined version of the Summoner class from Phantasy Star Online 2.

Class Weapon Overview

Wakers has access to one unique weapon: Harmonizer (NGS) Harmonizers.

Class Overview

Contrast to Phantasy Star Online 2's Summoner class, Waker does not utilize Pets, but rather creatures called Familiars. Familiars do not need to be raised unlike Pets. Pets from Phantasy Star Online 2 cannot be used as Familiars.

There are three types of Familiar, each with their own combat styles which excel in close-range distances or long-range distances, depending on the Familiar used. The power of Familiars will scale to the player's equipment and level.

Waker is a class that fights alongside Familiars by summoning them. Summoning the right Familiar depending on the situation is the key to the class's full potential.

Fredran and Wulfen are Familiars that can be summoned mainly by PA. Fredran is a wyvern-type Familiar that specializes in long-ranged breath attacks. Wulfen is a beastman-type Familiar that specializes in short-ranged heavy attacks. Marmelo is a cute looking Familiar that can be summoned mainly by Weapon Actions. It specializes in defending enemy attacks and can release a powerful counterattack as well.

Harmonizer

Harmonizer is a Technique Weapon that can be used both as a close-ranged and long-ranged weapon. It cannot use any Techniques like Force and Techter but it can adapt to all kinds of situations by using Familiars.

Focus Gauge will appear on the upper part of the Main Palette, once you have acquired the class skill "Harmonizer Focus". There are different Focus Gauges for each Familiar, and the mechanism of Fredran and Wulfen's Focus Gauges will differ from Marmelo's.

Fredran and Wulfen's Focus Gauges will accumulate as you land your attacks with them, and you will earn 1 stock (maximum of 2) once the gauge is full. You will be able to release a powerful attack by consuming each of Fredran and Wulfen's stocks, once you have acquired the class skill "Familiar Harmony".

Marmelo's Focus Gauge will fill up when successfully guarding enemy attacks with Weapon Action, once you have acquired the class skill "Marmelo Strike". Focus Gauge will accumulate up to 2 levels. You will hold up Marmelo in front of you when pressing down the Weapon Action button, and will attack by throwing Marmelo once you let go the button, by consuming all of your Focus Gauge. The higher the Focus Gauge level, the bigger the damage.
