Job Description

Archers are the first available units that possess a significant ranged physical attack. They are quite pivotal early in the game when ranged attacks are quite valuable, but later in the game they just don't have the punch that other available classes have.

Job Ability Description

The archer's action ability set, charge, is not the greatest, but it does have some use. It allows a character to build up for a powerful attack. Most of the upper-level charge abilities are worthless because they take so much time. Charge +4 is your best bet, finding the right tradeoff between charge time and damage inflicted. Concentrate is a really great support ability and is reasonably cheap. Other than those, most of the archer's abilities are pretty much a waste. Move on to other classes.
