PROs:

1.). A different and much more varied way to use Memorist than just Final Heaven recollect spamming.

2.) Can use all of regular physical attacks, white/black/summon/magic blade + doublecast all on the same character at once (and for white/black/summon/magic, in any combination within the doublecast), and with 100% reliability of accessing these options with each turn that you use Memorandom.

Pretty much, one of, if the the, most versatile characters possible in the entire game.

NOTE: [You can also use Attune Blade as an option, as it will always become available from Memorandom from the process of learning Doublecast, but generally you'll want to always pick Dualcast from Memorandom, so this is not an important part of the build]

3.) Because you're a Memorist, you can equip almost anything in the game, except Holy and Dark Swords.... including Longinus, a Spear that grants +10 INT/MND and hastens casting speed, but normally would not be too useful for spell casting (except for faster casts of F-abilities), as the class that use spears generally have very poor INT/MND and thus don't want to cast in the first place.

4.). Extremely straightforward job build - Just Red Mage (max for Doublecast) --> Memorist.

WHO CAN DO THIS:

Sol, Sarah, or Aigis.

Sol and Sarah don't start with any active abilities (Sol has the passive Counter, and Sarah has none). Aigis only has Cover [Passive], and Red Lv. 1 (which you learn as part of the build anyways, so its not an impediment).

WHO CAN'T DO THIS:

Dusk + All Dark Warriors

Dusk starts with White Magic already learned as a command. This messes up the 100% reliability of accessing Doublecast [instead its about 80% reliable]. Dark Warriors can't use Memorist anyways.

If anyone wants to make comments, feel free to do so. Hope this is helpful or inspiring to other players.
