Shamanic Adept is a class that originally hailed from YGGDRASIL.


This was a monk-type class that borrowed the strength of animal spirits and enhanced one’s physical abilities. The tattoos on the user are connected to the animal whose abilities the user wishes to borrow.[1][2]

Abilities and Powers

There was a limit to how often one could use this skill a day, but it raised the user’s abilities to that of a beast. For a physically superior animal to use a human being’s martial arts, it was a truly fearsome combination.


  • Single Strike Kill: Simultaneously channeling every single one of the animal spirits empowering the user's shamanic tattoos (Panther, Falcon, Rhinoceros, Buffalo, Lion), this lets the shaman executes a tremendously powerful punch that, given the name, is likely capable of killing most New World inhabitants in a single hit if it connects.


  • In the Web Novel, the tattoos that grant the user the abilities of the animals are said to be a result from this class and a Spell Tattoo[3]
