Dissidia Final Fantasy, Chemist Lore

The Chemist (薬師, Yakushi?, lit. Dispenser or アイテム士, Aitemushi?, lit. Item User), also known as an Alchemist (錬金術士, Renkinjyutsushi? or 精錬術士, Seirenjyutsushi?, lit. Refining Technician) or Salve-Maker, is a job that appears in various games in the series. Chemists are often characterized as wearing yellow robes.

Their main weapons are daggers, guns, and rods. They are best known for their abilities involving various items. Usually, this involves having an exclusive access to special items, doubling the potency of recovery items, and most importantly, their unique ability Mix allows them to combine two items into one. They also can heal party members for free.

Final Fantasy Tactics SEdit

TS The Final Fantasy Tactics A2 development team also originally intended to include a Transmuter job for the nu mou. Like the original Chemist, the Transmuter would have mixed varying items together for different effects. But due to the extensive amount of time required to test every ability, it was scrapped at the last moment and was never implemented in the finalized product. The Transmuter sprite can still be seen in auction houses and the Luck-Stick seller also resembles a nu mou with this job.
