Here are the best jobs for Ichiban and Kiryu's teams in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

One of the best parts of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is its job system, which lets party members switch up their stats, skills, and weapons to serve a different niche in battle. Much like other JRPGs, changing a character’s job in Infinite Wealth can make all the difference, and turn a character from an underperforming liability into an absolute powerhouse.

Each party member comes with a starting job, and while most of these are serviceable for the early- and mid-game, many of them start to fall off as you reach the back half of the story. Thankfully, there are plenty of jobs for every character to choose from, and this guide will tell you which jobs are best for each party member, on both Kasuga and Kiryu’s teams.

Be sure to check out our tips and tricks for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

Best job for Kasuga: Sujimancer/Hero

Kasuga as Sujimancer in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Kasuga has the most options available to him in terms of jobs, with three jobs unique to him: Freelancer, Hero, and Sujimancer. He’ll start on Freelancer, then quickly switch over to Hero, one of the best classes in the game. Hero’s skills get stronger with every increase to Kasuga’s social skills, making it a powerful late-game job, but it does lack somewhat in the early and mid-game. Thankfully, there’s a solution: Sujimon.

The Sujimancer job is fairly easy to unlock, requiring you to defeat just one Discreet Four member in the Sujimon League, and it’s one of the most powerful jobs in the entire game. Sujimancer’s stats and abilities get stronger depending on the Sujimon equipped, and given Sujimon is very quick and easy to grind out, it’s easy to get late-game stats well before the midway point of the story. In the very late-game, switching back to Hero is definitely the way to go, but Sujimancer will serve you very well for the majority of the game, provided you’re willing to put a bit of time into raising your Sujimon.

Best job for Chitose: Housekeeper

Chitose is a bit of a strange character, excelling at nothing really in particular, but her base stats do have a focus on agility. We’ve gone with Housekeeper here as it’s one of the more powerful magic jobs in the game, with a heavy focus on magic attacks and the option to remove all buffs from enemies. With Chitose’s naturally high speed, it’s very easy to buff up her magic stat with Geodancer’s Harmonious Hula and then sweep even the toughest battles.

Best job for Tomizawa: Cabbie

Tomizawa as cabbie in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Tomizawa starts with the Cabbie job, and honestly, while there are other jobs that specialize in one area or another, it’s best to keep Tomizawa with his default job. The Cabbie job is a jack of all trades job, with access to just about every type of elemental and physical damage through the learned skills. It scales reasonably well into the late-game, and while Tomizawa won’t be setting any records for damage output, he’ll always be useful in battle, and sometimes that’s even more important than pulling big numbers. You can also pick up a few early inheritance skills from other jobs to give access to healing and buffing skills — there’s really nothing Tomi can’t do as a Cabbie.

Best job for Adachi: Samurai

Adachi is a hard hitter, and the Samurai job fills this role perfectly. The Samurai role has some great combo potential, with skills that inflict bleeding and other skills that deal more damage if an opponent is bleeding. Honestly, that’s the main point of the Samurai: hit hard and deal damage over time with bleed. There are also a few skills for buffing attack and critical hit chance, and anything that’s missing from the role can be picked up with early inheritance skills from other classes. The best part is that Samurai scales exceptionally well into the late-game, so if you invest in the job early, Adachi quickly becomes an invaluable asset in your party.

Best job for Joongi: Desperado

Joongi as desperado in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Desperado is one of the most busted jobs in the game, with a huge range of status afflictions available even 10 ranks into the skill. The Desperado job lets Joongi deal a lot of damage, while also silencing enemies, putting them to sleep, paralyzing them, and poisoning them. Later, there are skills that inflict the cold status, skills that burn enemies, outright KO them, and to top it all off, there’s a skill that heals Joongi’s HP and status ailments. It’s frankly absurd, and if there’s another man on your team who’s not pulling their weight, Desperado could be a good choice for them too.

Best job for Kiryu: Dragon of Dojima

Kiryu as dragon of Dojima in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Let’s be very clear: there is absolutely no reason to ever change Kiryu’s job from Dragon of Dojima. Honestly, if every other character could use it, we’d recommend it for them, too. Alas, Kiryu is the only one who can, but let’s talk about why there’s no reason to switch.

Dragon of Dojima is all about basic attacks, with Kiryu having access to three different combat styles for his basic attacks — one for regular attacks, one that’s slightly weaker but allows multiple attacks, and one that’s much stronger and has the grapple effect. That last one is a game changer, as it’s more or less the only way to break guard without expending MP. Dragon of Dojima scales very well throughout the game, and gets even stronger with Kiryu’s awakening level in the back half of the game. It’s incredible.

Best job for Nanba: Host

Nanba as a host in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Nanba starts with the Homeless Guy job, which is a fairly decent spellcaster job that unfortunately is far too limited to be worth it throughout the whole game. There is another spellcaster job, though, that’s perfect for Nanba, and that’s Host. Host has a very high magic stat, meaning you can grab a few of the better inheritance skills from Nanba’s default job and deal big damage with them, but comes with a host of great skills in its own right. These include a lot of buffing and debuffing skills, the ability to steal items and money from enemies, and multiple abilities that deal more both charm and burning status afflictions.

Best job for Seonhee: Night Queen/Kunoichi

Seonhee as a Kunoichi in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

We were a bit torn for Seonhee, who’s a bit like Tomizawa in that she’s a bit of an all-rounder. Night Queen exploits her natural strength, with a big focus on dealing big hits and dealing status afflictions that prevent enemies from attacking, but we think Kunoichi is a great choice too. Kunoichi mixes absurdly high agility with decent physical and magic damage, with a focus on stacking agility buffs and then dealing damage with moves that are buffed by agility. Kunoichi also has an ability that prevents Seonhee from taking damage – which is good given the low HP stat – and end-game skills that poison, paralyze, and charm enemies. We’d lean towards Kunoichi, but Seonhee really does excel in either role.

Best job for Saeko: Idol

Saeko as an idol in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Idol was more or less the best job for Saeko in Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and not much has changed here. It’s got a big focus on healing and charming, has a proper revive skill which is a bit of a rarity outside of Kasuga’s Hero job, and of course, has access to charm skills, which effectively immobilizes most enemies in the game. It does have a few attacking skills too, most of which are pretty decent, but Idol is all about keeping your allies healthy and preventing damage through charm, which is very important in late-game fights.

Best job for Zhao: Action Star

Zhao as an action star in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth

Action Star is a very strong job that’s focused almost entirely on dealing damage. It’s got a maxed out HP stat, very high physical attack, but basically no magic power behind it. That’s fine, though, because with the skills Action Star has access to, you’ll never need to think about magic. Action Star gets a grapple very early on, which is always nice, and most of its skills deal huge amounts of damage for relatively little MP. The main draw of this job though is Relentless Dragon’s Dance, which doubles the damage of the next physical skill used, and Essence of Improvisation, which deals heavy damage and heals back a percentage of the damage dealt. This one-two combo is ridiculous in late-game fights, and with basic attacks being so strong in this job, burning through huge amounts of MP to cast it isn’t a huge drawback.
