Wielding a deadly rapier, the light-footed fencer strikes swift and sure.
Fencer - Viera

Fencer is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, usable by the viera only. This job is one of the best starter classes as it has well-rounded stats, high Attack and Speed, with the highest possible HP for any viera class. As a melee unit, her Magick and Resistance are lacking, as her Defense is. She is versatile however, her move set allows her to attack units who are evasive, around her, behind another unit, deplete a foe's MP and inflict a number of status changes including Doom, as well as strike from a distance.

Aluette is a Fencer and a member of Prima Donna. After winning an auction, she will sometimes ask if the player would like a gift for their accomplishment, however if one answers rudely they will have to fight her and the other members of Prima Donna.

  • Although Fencers equip rapiers (foils/sabres/Epee), their gear is all light armor-based, since viera Fencers are supposedly quite fearsome fighters whose nimbleness is unmatched.
  • Even though Fencers are evenly matched with Soldiers and Warriors, their Attacks are slightly weak, but their Speed is the only thing that grants them the best advantage.
