I've played with most of the combinations, but my most popular is definitely a fighter through and through. I like to have him in the forefront since he's in nearly all of my battles, and it seems right to have him wielding a sword and lopping off heads. It's the same with most of the NPCs (if I use them) - it just doesn't seem right to turn them into a magic-user that I'll even turn them into a Geomancer just so they can use a sword.

My Ramza is almost always a Draw Out / mage setup. Squire class, equipment to increase MA, Draw Out as a secondary, Magic Attack Up as a support, MP Switch as a Reaction (usually), and either Move +3 or Move MP-Up as a movement. Faith is around 15, Brave is at 97.

With something like that you have high damage that can't be blocked and isn't dependent on Faith, plus very high survivability. Scream makes everything too easy. I usually use this kind of setup with a magic class like the Wizard, but with Ramza you have better equipment selection and usually better stats in general.

My Ramza always ends up being painfully unoriginal. Almost always Lancer with Geomancer or Guts as secondary. Boring, I know. sleep.gif If I'm feeling froggish, I might assign him Punch Art instead.

I'm a little more adventurous with my generics.

I always end up giving Ramza a class that will maximise his HP - it makes those occasional solo story battles managable. Currently I have Ramza as a Samurai/Squire with dual swords. (He's a killing machine)

Yes, it's true... I like to keep Ramza a master squire with monk secondary. He has more squire moves than the generics, of course... throughout the game I use him to raise everyone's brave up to 97. And with the monk set he can revive, purify, chakra...

I have him as a squire duel wielding a chaos blade and an excalabur. I just throw on item or elemental for a secondary skill.

I usually like to keep him as a Squire becuase of his equipment, stats, and Mettle/Guts abilities. I like Laszlow's idea of Draw Out, but I usually give him Math Skill, becuase the right algorithms and calculations can be highly detrimental to the enemies and very beneficial to himself and allies. I find more success with that than other set-ups.

Dual-Weild can be very helpful, but I generally give him Magic Defend Up or Magic Attack along with Move HP-Up and Blade Grasp.

I think that if i would make Ramza as Dancer (lol), i'd did. Ramza is perfect with his begininning 70/70 for Every job you want do with him.

In PSP Version i made him a Perfect Onion Knight and a Dark Knight Master, so i can hit 999 hit points always.

In PSX Version, which i prefer, i usually made him first of all Ninja/Monk, a Shaolin Version of Ramza, who can Kill You with 2 punches. I don't like putting him as a knight in the late part of the game, infact, after Chapter 3, You can equip him with the same Knight stuffs as a Generic usually have with Knight Job. I like a lot even the Black Mage System. Black Magic + Draw Out owns everything.

I've done it all. He makes a very good Mage because of his high Faith. Truth be told, by the end game I usually switch him back to uberSquire because it's on par with the other special characters.

In the PSP version, I spend most of the game getting him to Dark Knight.

Since Ramza always appears in all of my battles, I toughen him up by mastering Squire & Monk. Afterwards, I keep him as monk.

Here's how I like setting him up as:

Sub Command: Guts (useful skills for increasing Brave/speed/attack or heal a friend well if Chakra's useless
Reaction Ability: Counter
Support Ability: Equip Armor (a must for max HP)
Field Ability:: Move-HP Up

So, in conclusion, Ramza is my powertank.

I constantly use Accumulate/Cheer Up/Yell/Scream to improve his stats (his Brave stays at 97 after battles so don't even try physically attacking him), Wave Fist/Earth Slash for far-away enemies, and Chakra/Stigma Magic/Wish/Heal for recovering purposes.

With his equipment, I toss in the best kind of helmets & armor that I get him, and either switch between Bracer or some other accessory that makes him immune to a bad status from an incoming boss fight.

Ramza is an awesome character in my party. Whenever I get Orlandu, I steal his Excalibur (because of "Haste") and any other useful equipment to equip them ti Agrias, then boot Orlandu off of my team.

Never really enjoyed making the main characters magicians tbqh.

I'm still on my first playthrough on this game, but so far I've been using him as a monk with dual wield or something else with brawler. I like to have Martial Arts or Mettle as my second ability.

Number 8 for me as well.

I've played all those configurations. I usually just stick to him using brute force though. And of course at the end of the game I have him as a Squire. I just like him like he started, and I love Ultima.

Although I've tried many, many combinations and loved them all, my favorite is to have Ramza as a squire.

The Secondary is usually up for grabs, usually Item I guess. Although lately, I'm experimenting with Time Magic.
Reaction would be Blade Grasp. Gotta dodge all those frontal attacks because he's in the front lines.
Support is Two Swords for massive damage.
Field as Teleport. Go anywhere you want. Sucks when it fails when you only want to move three spaces...

Yeah...

I typically play him as a two-sword samurai, leaving the mage classes for later if/when they're learned. It probably ends up being something like:

Chirijiraden
Chirijiraden
Grand Helmet
Maximillian
Feather Mantle

Draw Out
Battle Skill
Sunken State
Two Swords
Teleport

I have Ramza as a squire with 2 rune blades, flash hat, light robe, and i stole the +2 Physical Attack +2 Magic attack gauntlet from elmdor. He's powerful with magic but deals about 180 damage with each hand, and since the rune blades give +2 MA its a pretty good combo.

I've played through the game enough times to have tried all of these variants with Brute Force killer and Squire/Draw Out Abuser being most common.

Has anyone else noticed that cadet Ramza looks a lot like Marche from tactics advance?Ive started way too many new games its probably knocked off a couple years off me life. Each one I start I have Ramza go a different direction which (Strangely enogh) ends up getting him killed whenever I choose A Mage Role...

See my sig. The equiptment has changed over the years, but he has never really changed. I did try to use Darkness as a second once, but I ended up not liking it much, so I went back to Guts. As for Brave and Faith, I keep them both maxed toward the end of the game, when the better equiptment cand be used to protect from offencive magic. Max Brave helps Counter, max Faith lets my White Mage do her job to the fullest.

I master the Monk/Squire skillset asap, and my skills look something like;

- Guts
- Punch Art
- Blade Grasp/Auto Potion for story fights.
- I'd put Two Swords here, but I'm in love with the Aegis Shield, so I might put something nifty instead.
- Move + 3

Excalibur is a really nice sword for Ramza because of it's haste.
Screaming/Yelling is fun, too. :]

My new playthrough is a squire/lancer with counter flood, magic up, and teleport. Magic up might seem odd, but I did the level/delevel method, and my magic power is way down compared to my physical. Since geomancy works off of PA and MA, this raises the damage significantly.
