XIV

Machinist (機工士, Kikō-shi?), is a job in Final Fantasy XIV, introduced in the game's first expansion pack, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. As with the other three Ishgard jobs, Machinist has no base class and begins at level 30.

ProfileEdit

The war with Dravania rages on. Brutal and unrelenting. With no end in sight, the Holy See grows desperate. As her dragoons lay down their lives in defense of their home, Ishgard turns to technology to protect her sons and daughters. Great cannons and ballistae now line the city walls, plucking dragons from the sky.

Following the example of Cid Garlond, who has demonstrated the potency of magitek, the Skysteel Manufactory works tirelessly on the development of advanced armaments. As new and devastating weapons are brought to the fray, a new class of champion arises to wield them ― the machinist.
—Lodestone

The job is a mobile, ranged DPS class using guns as their main weapon. Machinists focus on dealing ranged damage using a combination of firearms enhanced with various attachments and can deploy mechanical turrets to help them on the battlefield.

EquipmentEdit

Machinist equip guns, typically in the form of pistols, muskets or shotguns. For armor, they equip "Aiming" gear which improves their Dexterity, as their main stat. This means that their equipment is largely shared with Bards while their accessories are shared with Bards and Ninjas
