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

Illusionist (幻術士, Genjutsushi?) is a Job class from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Only humes and nu mou can become Illusionists.

Illusionists use the power of the elements to deal a decent amount of damage to all enemies on the battle field. Because all of 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 each and every turn.
