In Phantasy Star Online, HUcast are powerful melee classes that boast the strongest attack power in comparison to any other class in the game. With their high ATP, they are able to use partisans much earlier in the game. Although unable to cast techniques, HUcast can circumvent this by hunting Sinow Red to obtain the S-Red's Blade, which buffs the user with a level 3 Shifta/Deband. This is ideal for solo play, whereas in a party, the HUcast can potentially obtain the buffs from organic party mates.

HUcast also have built-in HP recovery and an immunity to poison and paralysis. Additionally, they can detect hidden traps and set their own to assist them in combat.

HUcast are able to wield a variety of weapons that each have their own uses depending on the situation in combat. These generally include: Sabers, Swords, Daggers, Partisans, Slicers, Double Sabers, Katanas, Claws, Twin Swords, Fists, Mechguns and Handguns. It is important to note that certain special weapons can only be wielded by specific gender and class combinations.

Traps

HUcast are armed with an arsenal of traps that can add some utility during battle. They can be set off either by a mob or by triggering them manually with a gun. For every 7 levels, HUcast will gain 1 additional trap for freeze and confusion, while damage traps add an additional 1 for every 11 levels grown. Slow traps are only accessible in PVP battle mode.

The starting number of traps a HUcast will have is the following:

  • Damage: 2
  • Freeze: 2
  • Confuse: 2
  • Slow: 2 (battle mode only)
