TA

Gadgeteer who carry tricks in Pandora boxes.
—In-game description

Gadgeteer (カラクリ士, Karakurishi?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It is only available to moogles. Gadgeteers rely on the tricks held within Pandora's Box, learned by knuckles, for their special abilities. However, there is a catch: the Pandora action ability may affect all members of the player's team or the enemy team.

What side is affected is determined by the coin that comes out of the Gadgeteer's box. If the coin's face is a sun, the ability will affect the player's team. If the coin face is that of a crescent moon, the ability will affect the opposition. In order to guard against hurting one's own allies, the use of equipment that guards against ailments is highly advisable, among them the very useful Angel Ring, which provides nullification against Darkness, Poison, and Doom, which account for three out of four offensive Pandora abilities.

Ffta-job-gadgeteer

The Gadgeteer is the most defensive moogle job. Its Defense stat ties with the Mog Knight, while its Resistance ties with the nu mou Black Mage for highest Resistance in the game. It also ties with the Animist for highest HP in a moogle job, making it the ideal tanking job for moogles. However, its Attack, Magic Power and Speed, while not horrible, leave something to be desired.

TriviaEdit

  • The Gadgeteer's Pandora's box item is likely a reference to the Greek myth of the same name, where the first woman, Pandora, opened a container (actually a large jar) that released all the evils of the world.
