ARR Archer

A Miqo'te Archer in Final Fantasy XIV.

The Archer (弓使い, Yumi Tsukai?, lit. Bow User) is a job that appears in various games in the Final Fantasy series. They wield bows in battle and uses status ailments to attack.

Archers overlap slightly with Rangers, as both specialize in bow weapons and share two trademark abilities, Barrage and Aim. The main difference is that Archers are exclusive to Ivalice, with the exception of Final Fantasy XIV, and specialize in status and elemental attacks while Rangers focus on being strong ranged physical attackers.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

In the International Zodiac Job System version, the Sagittarius License Board holds the Archer class. They use primarily light armor and bows, and can cast some White Magick. The Archer also has the largest number of Technicks of any job class.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant WingsEdit

The Archer class is exclusive to enemy viera, which focus on debuffing and weakening enemies.

Final Fantasy Type-0Edit

While there is no job system, a member of Class Zero, Trey, uses a bow and arrow for combat.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

The Archer is a Discipline of War. It can be upgraded into the Bard job.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Archers have the Aim ability, which lets them take time to charge up a stronger attack than normal. The amount of time it takes to charge, and the strength of the attack, both increase as the job levels up.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

The Archer class can use several special attacks to inflict status ailments on enemies. The job is available for human and viera, and job growth changes depending on which species the user is: humans may develop their skills to become Hunters, while viera become Snipers.

The Sniper is a job exclusive to viera. It uses several quick and deadly abilities and can even attack at an enemy's personal possessions.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

The Archer is again a job class for humes and viera, and has several status attacks. As in Tactics Advance, humes may become Hunters and viera may become Snipers by training with the Archer job.

The Sniper is available for viera once they master two Archer abilities. Snipers rely on weakening opponents in a more subtle fashion.
