—In-game Description

Fencer (フェンサー, Fensā?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It is only available to viera characters. The only non-viera character who is a Fencer is Ritz Malheur. She remains a Fencer until the second act, where she upgrades to the Elementalist job. Eventually joining Clan Nutsy, she reverts to her Fencer job.

The Fencers are the standard wielders of rapiers but they also have an array of tricks up their sleeve. From status ailments to MP damage, Fencers' attacks have the widest range of effects. One should be careful in combat against Fencers, especially ones with Reflex. The Fencer job becomes available the moment viera are recruited to the clan and serves as the default job for all viera companions.
