While Viper will be considered a Melee DPS, it will share gear with Ninja, which uses Dexterity based gear rather than Strength. To add on to this, the only things required of players to unlock this new Melee Job is to have purchased the Dawntrail expansion and have one other Job at level 80 or higher. Viper's unlock and class quests will begin in Ul'dah, making it accessible regardless of MSQ progression.
