Uses phantasm magic to attack all enemies!
—In-game description

Illusionist (幻術士, Genjutsushi?) is a job class from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for humes and nu mou.

Illusionists use the power of the elements to deal a decent amount of damage to all enemies on the battle field. Because their abilities "Target All" enemies, the Illusionist can stay out of the fray and cast magic. Since they have mediocre HP growth (and outstanding MP and Magic Power growth), it is advisable to move out of harm's way at every turn.

Hume Illusionists have the highest MP and Magic Power of any hume job, and have exceptionally high Resistance. This is counter-balanced by having the lowest HP, Attack and Defense stats of all hume jobs, as well as being the second slowest, beating out the Paladin by only a tenth of a point. Like all hume magic jobs, it is faster but slightly less powerful than its nu mou counterpart.

Nu mouEdit


Nu mou Illusionists have the lowest HP growth, and tie with Paladins, Templars and Sages for the lowest Speed growth. The Illusionist does not have any beneficial unique merits, as the Alchemist, Time Mage and Sage outshine it in almost every aspect.
