Male & Female Archers

Archer is one of the first physical jobs that can be unlocked in Final Fantasy Tactics. Archers can use long-range weapons called Bows. This Job is well balanced, focusing on Speed, Defense, and Magic Resistance. Good for beginners.


[edit] Job Prerequisite

The only prerequisite for this job is that the unit you wish to become an Archer must be at least a level 2 Squire.

[edit] Job Ability: Charge

The ability for this job is called Charge, which skips your Act for the unit's current turn to use a more powerful attack later on. The main drawback is that the stronger the charge attack, the longer the charge time becomes. Unless an enemy unit is afflicted with Stop or Slow, using higher level Charge attacks could give them ample time to move away from the targeted panel, thus wasting your time.

Note: All ability names are from the original PS1 version of Final Fantasy Tactics
