Job Description

The Black Mage has great Magic Power (second only to the Summoner and late-game Oracle) and the ability to wield Rods. You've won right there! The Black Mage has everything you'd want from it. I don't know what to say about the Job! The Black Mage is better at healing than the WhiteMage if you give him White spells, and, since it has offense built-in, the Black Mage can be boosted by, say, Equip Shield, !Lance, !Animals or whatever other half-decent utility option you can think of. Just don't try to give weapons to the guy, it's not what he's here for.

Job Ability Summary

The Black spell list is quite excellent throughout the entire game. The three elements the Black Mage specializes in are the three most popular elements to be weak against and are easily boosted as well. It's too bad the ultimate Black spell, OFlare, is non-elemental and cannot be boosted, meaning it'll fall short of boosted 'lesser' spells. Black spells have a problem with Reflective enemies, but these are rare indeed.

Transfer to Freelancer

Nothing again, really. Not the highest Magic Power, no inherent abilities. MP +30% is quite useless as well.
