Learnables

Abilities

This section lists the abilities and spells you can learn as an arcanist. Arcanist is a summoner class, so the entities it is capable of summoning have been marked in (parenthesis) after the appropriate summoning spell.
Note that under the current 2.0+ localization system, the traditional FF spell system of -ra and -ga (etc) magic has been changed to a I, II (etc) system. The current system's numbers are not equivalent to the numbering system of older versions and other FF games. To preserve continuity with other FF games, the name of the affected spells used in other languages than English has been noted in (parenthesis) after its name in the current localization system, when applicable.
