FF Characters in FFXI JobsEdit
So, this is what I think the characters would fit in these jobs.
- Warrior: Guy, Cloud, Squall
- White Mage: Aerith, Eiko, Porom
- Monk: Sabin, Yang, Tifa
- Black Mage: Vivi, Lulu, Montblanc
- Thief: Locke, Vaan, Zidane
- Red Mage: Scott, Terra, Celes
- Paladin: Cecil, Ashe, Beatrix
- Dark Knight: Basch, Leon, Paine
- Summoner: Yuna, Rydia, Garnet
- Bard: Edward, Hurdy
- Beastmaster: Relm, Rinoa
- Ranger: Rosa, Balthier, Irvine
- Dragoon: Kain, Cid, Richard
- Samurai: Auron, Cyan
- Ninja: Shadow, Edge, Amarant
- Puppetmaster: Luca, Rikku
- Blue Mage: Strago, Quistis, Quina
- Corsair: Setzer, Selphie
- Dancer: Penelo, Mog
- Scholar: Tellah, Fusoya
Rikku is a thief and Paine is a Warrior. You missed Tifa as a Monk and Monty is a Black Mage, not a spoony Bard!
Thank you for pointing out the obvious.
Oops! I guessed I confused Monty with Hurdy. As for Rikku and Paine, Rikku is more associated with a chemist class in FFX. She wields claws as weapons and can dismantle machina. Paine, on the other hand, is more associated with darkness, due to the skulls that decorate her clothing and fighter dresspheres.
Basch as a dark knight? He may look as badass as one, but he's a paladin in RW.
Yeah, but what about the original? Basch has low Vitality and Dark Knights in FFXI also have low Vitality. You can check in the Job System page if you don't believe me.
FFXII doesnt count, because you can shape any character you want there and the differences in stats arent that huge. Who knows? Maybe there's a poor chap out there who uses Basch as a white mage...
True. But that doesn't mean that the FFXII characters have to be completely classless.
My characters in XII are hybrids of like, 10 classes.
My XII characters have every license, just for fun. haha. boy that took forever. Also; Eiko might have a bigger white magic/smaller summon pool than Garnet, but that doesn't mean she is a white mage. Just because she has a lot of white magic, doesn't cancel out her ability to summon.or the horn on her head.
Leon5550 said : "Who knows? Maybe there's a poor chap out there who uses Basch as a white mage..." I do use Basch as a polyvalent mage... well, actually, he's more a kind of... well, uh... Fighter/Cleric, not to reference some other game. He's very good at crushing heads with his mace, very good at frozing bodies and very good at healing allies.Topic wise, I would, according to what you did, put Fran in the Ranger class; I don't really know what the classes are in FFXI but, as Ranger is pretty commmon, I think she'd would at her place. You forgot Yuffie... This is so lame! However, I don't if she would fit more in Ninja or more in Thief. IIRC, you can dual-class at a certain point in the game, don't you?
