Job summaries

Alchemist is an advanced Nu Mou job that needs five Black Mage abilities and three White Mage abilities to unlock. They can equip maces and the usual mage armor. They concentrate on area-of-effect spells, and can use Meteor and Flare among other things. Their greatest strength lies in their innate ability to use items.

Archer is a basic job for Humans and Viera. Quite expectedly, they use bows as weapons, and can equip most light armor. Their special abilities concentrate on somehow disabling their enemies.

Animist is a basic job for Moogles. They use instruments for weapons and can equip light armor. Their special abilities use the powers of nature against their opponents - like Chocobo Rush that calls forth a rampaging herd of Chocobo or Frogsong that turns an enemy into a frog.

Assassin is an advanced job for Viera. It requires two Elementalist abilities and one Sniper ability to unlock. Assassins can equip greatbows and katana, and wear light armor. Most of their abilities concentrate on disabling their enemies, but also include Ultima Masher that does triple the damage of normal attacks. Assassin is one of the most powerful jobs in the game.

Beastmaster is a basic Nu Mou job. They can equip instruments and light armor. Their usefulness lies in their ability to control monsters, and as such are an invaluable companion to a Blue Mage for learning their attacks. They can also be a great help when fighting numerous monsters, as they can make the monsters fight each other instead of you having to fight each one yourself.

Bishop is an advanced Bangaa job, requiring two White Monk abilities to unlock. They can equip staves and regular mage clothing. Their abilities mainly use holy powers to heal and to hurt (indeed, they can use Holy), but also include Water and Aero.

Black Mage is a basic job for Humans, Moogles and Nu Mou. They can equip rods and mage clothing, and their abilities include the full lines of the three main elemental spells.

Blue Mage is an advanced Human job that requires one Black Mage and one White Mage ability to unlock. They can use sabers and equip mage clothing. Blue Mages learn abilities unlike the other jobs, not from items but from enemies. To learn a Blue Magic spell, it must be cast on a Blue Mage. They can use both healing spells such as White Wind and attacking spells such as Twister.

Defender is an advanced job for Bangaa, and requires two Warrior abilities to unlock. They can equip several kinds of swords and some armor in addition to robes. Their abilities mostly concentrate on defense, with some powerful offense abilities, such as Meltdown.

Dragoon is an advanced Bangaa job that requires two Warrior abilities to unlock. In addition to spears and regular armor, they can equip swords. In addition to the traditional Jump and Lancet abilities, they can use several different breath-based attacks.
