*note*
This skill build can be linked to the Fighter skill build by removing Air Combo Launch LvL 2 - 4 and saving the SP for later use and reset at level 23
when the primary killing skill of Incoming Bro! and I'm Gone Bro! are unlocked.

My skill build attempts to maximise the Passive skills for Gladiators and at the same time get the killing skills out early.
If we had reset at level 20, there is no problem with skill points allocation for the start. However, resetting at level 20 would result in
difficulty leveling from 20-23 (until Gladiator's Incoming Bro! and I'm Gone Bro! are unlocked). The skills maxed in this skill build results in
only 3 skills used from 1st job, focusing them on Gladiator skills instead, therefore there would be insufficient SP to do a hybrid.

Level 32 onwards had a shortage of SP to distribute between the skills available. I went for Incoming Bro! and I'm Gone Bro!
based on my experience in the Preview. I was using these skills more often than Wrath of Earth, hence I didn't mind that Wrath of Earth came in later.
Moreover, I'm Gone Bro! is the skill to use on the bosses in Mission Maps. Lastly, Annihilation at level 4 had an output of 25% which I felt was good enough.
Therefore, I chose to max it only as the last skill at level 40, just before fighting Lavalon.

With the current skill build, I expect the fight with Lavalon to be something as follows:
Using Hammer Crush, Incoming Bro!, I'm Gone Bro! Wrath of Earth to mass kill the minions for the Mana Bullet.
After firing the cannon and knocking Lavalon down, it would be spamming Annihilation, I'm Gone Bro!, Annihilation, Wrath of Earth, Incoming Bro! (repeat)
