Reaper Job Actions in Dawntrail

Listed below is all known information about the changes to the Reaper job in Dawntrail. Please note that Square Enix has significantly overhauled jobs between showing them in the Producer Live Letter, Mediatour, and action trailer. All of the listed information is thus subject to change.

Skill Name Category Changes
Harpe Icon Harpe Ability Using Harpe while under the effect "Enhanced Harpe" now reduces the recast time of Hell's Egress Icon Hell's Egress and Hell's Ingress Icon Hell's Ingress by 5 seconds.
Harpe additionally grants 10 Soul Gauge upon use.
Harvest Moon Icon Harvest Moon Ability Harvest Moon now grants 10 Soul Gauge upon use.
Sacrificium Ability (NEW!) Enshroud Icon Enshroud will grant a buff called Oblatio at level 92. Oblatio will allow you to use this new 500 potency AoE ability once during Enshroud.
Melee Mastery III Passive (NEW!) Increases the potency on a large number of our abilities and weaponskills at level 94.
Enhanced Gluttony Passive (NEW!) Modifies Gluttony Icon Gluttony to grant the caster stacks of Executioner instead of stacks of Reavers. These can then be used to cast either Executioner's Gibbet, Executioner's Gallows, or Executioner's Guillotine.
Second Wind Icon Second Wind Ability Has its curing potency increased.
Feint Icon Feint Ability Has its duration increased.
Perfectio Weaponskill (NEW!) Using Plentiful Harvest Icon Plentiful Harvest at level 100 will now grant you the buff "Perfectio Occulta" which turns into "Perfectio Parata" upon casting Communio. You can cash in "Perfect Parata" to use this new 1200 potency AoE ranged weaponskill.

With new abilities and buffed actions Reaper sees some slight changes to their Endwalker gameplay come Dawntrail. Below are some key takeaways to note before seeing the theorized opener and burst sequence.

  • With the addition of Perfectio Reaper suffers even more resource negativity.
  • Harpe Icon Harpe and Harvest Moon Icon Harvest Moon granting 10 Soul means we start a fight with 10 extra Soul and can disengage without losing resources.
  • Perfectio shifts our combo GCD fillers inbetween bursts to a number divisible by 3. This means we will always start burst on the same Combo. With the right opener we can enter burst after Infernal Slice Icon Infernal Slice. Unfortunately using any of our ranged attacks as fillers will potentially shift this with combo dropping after our burst being a potential risk.
  • Due to our new weaponskill and buff structure, we will most likely be dropping Death's Design for its re-application every 2 minutes. This is small potency loss for big gains in the burst window.
  • Reapings and Slices getting a buff means that we still prefer to capture most of the two Enshroud Icon Enshrouds in our burst window. This unfortunately means that either Perfectio or Gluttony Icon Gluttony falls out of the burst window.
  • Using Gluttony Icon Gluttony and the first Executioner weaponskill is more potency than Perfectio.
  • Our burst window falls apart at the 10 minute mark, with very little room for optimization without raid buff delay or a scuffed burst window.
  • Optimizing Reaper will be very interesting in odd timed fights! Look forward to it!
  • Sadly, Bloodsown from Arcane Circle Icon Arcane Circle remains as our biggest pitfall when it comes to creating optimized burst windows.

Reaper Opener in Dawntrail

  • While it may be tempting to delay, Arcane Circle Icon Arcane Circle must be used right away after the second Shadow of Death Icon Shadow of Death or else you will have issues during your typical 2 minute burst.
  • This opener is still subject to change as we learn about where other jobs will be placing their buffs, but with the knowledge we have this is the best variant.

Listed below is a showcase from the Job Actions Trailer featuring a collection of battle actions for Reaper.
