Final Fantasy is jam packed with different characters, all having their own unique fighting styles. In some titles such as Tactics and FFV, Squaresoft featured the ability to even assign your character a job class. Each unique and fun. So whether it's Sabin's Blitz, Tactic's Calculator, 1's Black Mage, 13's Commando, or what seems like hundreds of others; the question remains. What is your top 5 favorite Job Classes of Final Fantasy?
Here's my list:
(IV/Tactics/IX): I remember the first time I seen a dragoon in Final Fantasy. Kaine. He was awesome because while in air, he wasn't touched, then he'd rain down pain upon the enemy. Tactics had them as well which was awesome. Usually yielding a deadly spear and the ability to rain down pain, Dragoons remained to be one of my favorite unique classes of all time.
(All): Who doesn't like summoning some amazing beast to destroy everything in site. Final Fantasy has always kept to these iconic beasts and the character that wielded them has always changed. From Rydia, to Dagger, to Yuna, to just about everyone in 13. You just can't beat them.
(All): How would we get through some of those painful bosses without a little tender love and care. White mages have been saving our butts since the very first Final Fantasy. While some fight to play without them, others embrace these gentle beings with open arms. Here's to the healer!
(VI): There's just something about good ol Sabin that rings with me. Since the moment he jumps on the scene to thrash his rival, Sabin has kicked royal butt with his abilities known as Blitz. They arn't the simplest of things to pull off, generally a slip of the finger means a wasted turn. But to those wanting the game to be something besides mashing X, Sabin to the rescue. It's all for benefit as well, since mastering these combinations of buttons can often mean massive damage every turn from this well trained martial artist.
(VI/Tactics): Taking tree hugging to an ultimate, geomancers have an amazing ability to use the nature of their target's location against them. Bringing forth Lava, Roots, Rocks, and more to destroy their enemy. While I thought I originally met the geomancer in Tactics, I recently realized that I met it first with Mog, the cute little moogle of VI. So here's to our nature's wrath, the Geomancer!
