Arcanist Class Artwork ARR

An Arcanist from Final Fantasy XIV.

Arcanist (裏魔道士, Ura Madōshi?, lit. Reverse Mage) is a recurring job in the series. It has vastly different functions in each title, but tends to focus on debuffs and unique black magic abilities.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV

Unlike any other appearance, Arcanists do not deal damage—instead they support the party by using debilitation spells, spells that will deal damage over time, and spells to heal or revive allies.

Their defining trait is their ability to summon pets into battle. The Emerald Carbuncle, obtainable at level 4, specializes in wind-elemental attacks, while Topaz Carbuncle focuses on tanking abilities.

An Arcanist can be upgraded into a Summoner or Scholar and wield grimories in battle.
