In Dungeons

Job Classes & Abilities

You can choose jobs after restoring Pastor Roche's Memories. Change jobs inside dungeons by touching the crystal on the entrance floor.

The no-job class might appear useless once you get the other jobs, but it's actually one of the best and shows Chocobo is good on its own. The stats are balanced and the abilities very powerful and useful. Don't underestimate it!

Lv1 - Chcocobo Kick
Slight damage to one foe
Lv2 - Chocobo Drop
Deals slight damage to all nearby foes
Lv3 - Chocobo Kick+
Medium damage and knockback to one foe
Lv4 - Dig
Dig up one item per dungeon floor
Lv5 - Chocomet
Slight damage 3 grids forward and radius
Lv6 - Chocobo Dash
Move faster for a period of time
Lv7 - Chocobo Kick Zero
Mighty blow causes knockback and confusion
Lv8 - Chocobash
Non-element attack in a 3-grid radius
Lv8 - ????
Attack 3 grids forward against one foe

The Knight is good when you get it at the beginning of the game, but it quickly falls behind better jobs. It has very high defense against physical attacks and also magic attacks, and it's pretty strong, but it gets Chocobo hungry faster than other jobs.

White Mage
The White Mage's main appeal is that it has many healing spells to restore HP and cure status ailments. Otherwise, it's not very strong and doesn't have much defense. It's a good class to use if you're having difficulty with the game so you can heal Chocobo without needing Potions.

Black Mage
The Black Mage is one of the most powerful classes, but takes time to handle. It doesn't have much defense or physical attack and is very vulnerable. It's good for long range attack however, so you should stay away from enemies. It has a lot of very destructive spells that hit many enemies at the same time and its SP restores very fast so you can continuously keep using magic.

The Dragoon might not appear very powerful at first, but he has some very good abilities later on. His stats are pretty balanced; he has good defense and attack, as well as high HP. He has a lot of element-based attacks so it can be useful against some enemies in elemental dungeons.

The Scholar is a technical class. His stats are average, but once you master it, it's an excellent class that shouldn't be overlooked. Although he doesn't have any attack abilities, he has many useful ones. He can appraise items, display floor maps, show enemy HP, and even cure status ailments and heal HP. He's a good combination of Thief and White Mage, with very fast SP recovery.

Dark Knight
The Dark Knight doesn't start with very good abilities, but he actually has the most powerful attack of all the classes, so he's an essential class for some hard boss battles. Its Dark Blade ability can instantly kill bosses in one hit. He also has many other good abilities like draining HP from foes. The only downside is that his defense is low and most of his attacks sap his own HP.

The Thief is another good technical job. His stats are nothing special, but he's good at avoiding attacks, as his evasion is higher than other classes. He has similar skill to the Scholar like displaying floor maps, but also other useful skills like sneaking past sleeping foes and stealing items and gil from them. He's fast and can flee groups of enemies, but overall he's not very good in combat.
Unlock: Enter Dungeon Hero X's shop inside any dungeon (step into white teleport circle - 50% chance duel room or Mog store). Steal the treasure chest on his counter and take it with you. Either defeat Mog or escape by reaching the stairs and the Thief class is yours. To flee, move down, then left, then up and he should push you next to the stairs if you're lucky.

The Ninja doesn't have the best abilities, but he has high defense and attack. He's a balanced class with various abilities that allow him to flee enemies and even escape dungeons. He's a good class for advanced players. His first ability, Shuriken, is said to do slight damage but it's actually quite powerful.

The dancer isn't very powerful, but he has some good abilities like putting foes to sleep and attack several enemies all at the same time. He also has a healing ability that restores all health and cures status ailments. He might not appear much but his healing ability is very useful and some of his attacks are actually pretty destructive.
Unlock: Enter "Pirouette♪" with a capital letter and a little musical note ♩ symbol right next to the word as a romantic phrase for the Mog in the silo. It will unlock this class.
