Nature-loving archers who can call on local wildlife for aid.
The Ranger is the only job outside of the Freelancer and Gladiator that can equip bows, which allows them to deal full damage from the back row. While bows have a low accuracy compared to most other weapons (roughly 70% accuracy, if not lower), the Ranger gets around this with their innate Aim command, giving them 100% accuracy with any weapon. The Ranger has decent Strength but low Stamina, making them prone to magic attacks, as the Ranger has no way to boost Magic Defense.
The Ranger class represents animals and nature, and so the color green is used in their outfit. A feather is also donned by all characters, whether on headgear or alone. Lenna's costume resembles the Bard from Final Fantasy III.
- Job command - Aim
- Innate abilities - None
- Equipment - Knives, Bows, Light Helmets, Clothes, Armlets
The Ranger lacks innate abilities, meaning that mastering it will have no benefits to the Freelancer or Mime class, but it is still an interesting job. Aim usually never misses, making it preferable to Fight, and Rapid Fire is almost a must-have for physical attackers end-game.
Rapid Fire's third and fourth hit will not dispel Sleep, Control, or Confuse, will not provoke any counters and is unblockable. Any special abilities or effects weapons may have will not be activated when using Rapid Fire.
Equip Bows gives characters the Ranger's base Strength and Agility unless otherwise at a higher value.
The stat modifiers for Rangers are:
- Strength: +16
- Agility: +12
- Stamina: +1
- Magic: -5
