With their massive strength and powerful physique, Dawn Warriors (or Soul Masters) vanquish the enemy in close proximity. They are accompanied by Sol, the spirit of light, especially in combat. Only those equipped with a burning heart, sharp eyes, an even sharper blade, and undying loyalty to the empress are qualified to become a Dawn Warrior.
Dawn Warriors have two stances: Falling Moon (unlocked in 2nd job) and Rising Sun (unlocked in 3rd job), which change your attack skills aesthetically and functionally, as well as give you different damage boosts; Falling Moon will reduce your damage while doubling your attack count, as well as increase your critical rate; Rising Sun will increase your damage and attack speed. In 4th job, you will receive the skill Equinox Cycle, which will allow you to use both Falling Moon and Rising Sun skills interchangeably, as well as receive the boosts from both stances at once. These boosts are further enhanced by Master of the Sword.
At level 10, a Noblesse have the opportunity to become a Dawn Warrior by speaking to the tactician Neinheart in Ereve. They will then have to look for job instructor Mihile in the exact same map for them to be advanced as a Dawn Warrior.
At level 30, Neinheart will contact the Dawn Warrior via a light bulb and ask them to talk to their job instructor at Ereve. The instructor Mihile then tells the player to go to the Second Drill Hall and kill 30 Tigurus of Exam. Afterwards, the player will have to head back to Mihile to receive the 2nd job advancement.
At level 60, Neinheart will also contact the Dawn Warrior via a light bulb where a quest directs the player to Helios Tower Library for them to talk to Wiz the Librarian. He will tell the player to enter a door at the top right of the library. Upon clicking on the Old Book inside the room, 10 Black Wing Disciples will spawn. Chief Knight Hawkeye will appear after eliminating them, where he expresses how impressed he is, and will tell the player to head back to Ereve and talk to Neinheart.
At level 100, Neinheart will once again contact the Dawn Warrior via a light bulb. He will tell the player about a Black Wings' member hanging around The Grave of a Wrecked Ship. When the player head there and talk to Wightmare, the new Black Wings General, he will send the player to a dream map. Then, the player will be sent back to The Grave of a Wrecked Ship to talk to Hawkeye there, who tells the player to report to Neinheart. Neinheart will then tell the player to report to Cygnus, who is sound asleep.
Afterwards, the player will be sent to Cygnus's dream, where Cygnus is staring into a mirror of the future and seeing her corrupted future. She freaks out, and faints as her corrupted future breaks out of the mirror and into Cygnus's dream world. The player must then defeat her future self in order to be transported back to the real world. Then, talking to Cygnus will reveal that the "report" Neinheart requested the player to bring to her was actually a letter of recommendation for the player, and will advance the player to 4th job.
