Final Fantasy Tactics Job Classes

The job class system in FFT has its roots in FF3 and FF5, which makes sense when you think about it. The depth and intricate combinations of characters made possible by this system are simply too detailed to have come from scratch. The job system in FFT is largely known as the finest of its kind in RPG land for the many, many permutations possible as your character levels up. Use this site section as your guide to building a tough army.

Job Description

The base starting class for most front-line fighting units, referred to in the game as knights in training. They are respectable fighters early in the game, but are quite weak compared to most of the other fighting classes.

Job Ability Description

Squires have very few sophisticated abilities, but some of its abilities are extremely important for early character growth. Accumulate, Gained JP up, and Move +1 are all key abilities for the early part of the game. Monster Skill is also useful for later in the game if you use monsters in your party. Counter Tackle is cheap and not a bad counter at the beginning of the game.

Equipment

Types: Weapons Armor and Shields Helmets
