Wow, this is still here?

Anywho what I like about Ramza is that he's just set up to have good stats that he can jump to another job and for the most part excel at it.

Also finally got to take the Dark Knight Class for a spin. Powerful but not my favorite.

Typically I'll go physical with Ramza...maybe a Squire with 2 Swords, Ignore Height, Concentration, and Dragon Spirit or HP Restore.

I play Ramza in the classic PS1 version as a physical attacker for the most part.

Right now he is a Samurai
Secondary: Guts
Auto-Potion
Eqiup Spear
Jump +2

Hope to make him a bard eventually and give him fly. Equip spear is for
Javelin II
Genji Helm
Genji Chest
Germianas Boots

I generally roll with a party of 4 Offensive players and 1 Defensive player...but the defensive player is pretty solid. Mustadio as a Bard with Item as secondary throw Item, Auto-Potion, and Move Find Item since I just started my progress into the Deep Dungeon. Agrias, Beowolf, Cloud (level 12..just started working on him). I sub Orlandu in for Cloud on tough battles.

I tend to broaden his job tree quiet a bit and do everything before settling back to Knight with two swords ability. Makes him pretty unstoppable. Pair it with Counter, and make him as strong as possible and he's a beast. I usually have some white magic as back up. *Cure 3, Esuna, and Raise, just in case my healer is incapacitated*

I usually have Ramza as a combination Fighter/Mage, to take advantage of his high Brave and Faith. Usually I'll leave his Faith at base and max out his Brave whenever possible.

My usual set-up is:
Job: Squire
Action: White Magic/Time Magic
Reaction: Abandon
Support: Half of MP
Move: Move +3

Weapon: Rune Blade
Shield: Aegis Shield
Head: Thief Hat
Body: Robe of Lords
Accessory: Feather Mantle

I generally don't give Ramza the most powerful of my equipment since he can easily boost himself to well-above other characters' stats and power with Scream. Abandon + Feather Mantle/Aegis Shield makes him almost-invulnerable [100% evade against magic attacks, over 80% for physical], while his Guts and White/Time Magic makes him excellent for a support role.

A squire with summon? That's an interesting choice. May I ask why that as a secondary on him, and not another character (say, a Black Mage)?

Summon has attacks and healing magic. Besides Ramza has high MA and theres nothing to stop me from putting summon on a wizard as well.

My favorite 2 setups for Ramza would have to be:

Squire with excalibur.... rest of the gear doesn't matter much, just want the absorb holy. At level 99 just put level/3 and hit everyone with holy... just put holy absorbing stuff on the rest of the team. Usually, a battle is over just from him doing 1 action.

My other go to setup is monk/guts with 2 swords, hamedo/hp restore, equip armor, move +3, germanis boots... A few screams and you're runnin circles around everyone and are extremely powerful.

I can't imagine why. Probably something about a discussion of things actually relevant to the topic. Who knows?

Anyway, on-topic, I've always used him as an agile brute, by trying to level him into Thief and Ninja ASAP to get movement bonuses and then back into a more traditional warrior class (usually Monk) with Squire secondary and Equip Armor. I find this makes him mostly immune from being hit hard and fast enough to ever go over. In my most recent playthrough, which is currently stalled early in Chapter 2 because I can't be bothered to fight the rest of my family for time on the iPad, I've gone a totally different way and have been grooming him as an attack-oriented Mage. I'm likely to give him some time as a Chemist soon too so he can utilize the gun that I'm about to get.

All. Ending up as Squire. I'm sure I can skip some classes.

Abilities as mentioned elsewhere.

Guts
Math Skill
Blade Grasp
MagDefUp
Teleport

I know posts are fewer here these days. If no new or important information can be added, I'd make an auto-lock of topic feature. At least make it possible for admin/mod/and topic starter. Topic closes after X days/weeks/months?

He ends up being my Math Skill user, for a few reasons:

- 97 Faith - I like casting status effects through Math Skill, so Faith is more important to me than MA. I also dislike the "warning" messages for 94-faith characters, so my Ramza's faith ends up noticeably higher than, say, my Beowulf's.

- Excalibur - and other nice equipment options.

- Level-down / level-up - Ramza's not as a good a candidate for this as Reis, but he does have the very rare combination of above-average growth in both speed and MA, so he sees gains in all stats leveling down as something as simple as Chemist.

- Early Availability - Reis has more potential, but I can be Sleep-Frogging targets for stealing and poaching with Ramza much sooner, which I like.

Early in the game, I keep him a Squire for the stat growth and spill-over JP (my other characters ditch Squire as soon as they learn Accumulate). In chapter 3 he learns magic, then levels back down to 1 in Zeklaus Desert. Every time he gets into the 30s, I level him back down.

Perhaps his most important use, however, is Cheer Up. He's also my faith adjuster. I like this style for Ramza - he's a leader and tactician, shaping his teammates with stat adjustments and the battlefield with Math Skill status effects.

Squire, with 2 Swords or Jump, depending on the battle.

I do this for one reason, and one reason only: Scream. I've not played the PSP version, but liberal uses of Scream can turn Ramza into a buzzsaw. Give him Chaos blade and Excalibur (to parody a Buckcherry song- Hey, it's a crazy glitch but it works do good I'll just use it. And when I shred the demons and the ghosts, the pluses all on my man are really broken!") Even without the glitch, the only named character I use in the end is Agrias, so Ramza becomes this whirlwind of destruction.
