Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age description

Red Battlemage, is a License Board in the Zodiac versions of Final Fantasy XII. It is represented by the zodiac sign of Cancer.

The Red Battlemage has access to 142 licenses, which require 8,111 LP to unlock, as well as up to 14 additional licenses through summon licenses costing 915 LP, and 3 additional licenses costing 220 LP through Quickening licenses.

ProfileEdit

Red Battlemages have the largest selection of magick to choose from: some black magick, white magick, time magick, and are the only class that can use arcane magick. Their main weapon is the mace, but this can be switched to a stronger greatsword. Red Battlemages can equip mystic armor to improve their magick and shields to improve their evasion.

However, they are unable to learn Last Stand and Shield Block augments. Also, they can only acquire one Swiftness augment.

In The Zodiac Age version, the player can choose two license boards for each party member. Another good combination with Red Battlemage is Black Mage, as this combination lets the character use the Flame Staff to boost Red Battlemage's ultimate spell, Ardor. If used on oiled enemies, this can be the highest damage move in the game. Pairing Red Battlemage with Archer allows them to use the fire-boosting Burning Bow to boost Ardor and use their three Swiftness licenses and unlock all the Item Lores. This isn't as powerful as the Black Mage-Red Battlemage combination, but a good choice if the player wants to pair Black Mage with another job and use all jobs in one playthrough.

Pairing Red Battlemage with Machinist allows for ranged physical attack potential with guns, which don't use the wielder's stats to deal damage. With Famfrit, this combination gains plenty of Time Magicks as well, only missing out on Haste, Berserk, Stop, and Bleed. Hastega surpasses Haste, and Berserk can also be achieved via an accessory or Bacchus's Wine. However, Famfrit is obtained very late in the game, at the end of the last mandatory dungeon.

EtymologyEdit

In the original Japanese, the job is referred to as Red Warmage (赤魔戦士, Aka Masenshi?), and Red Battlemage in The Zodiac Age release likely to emphasize its additional melee capabilities and differentiate it further from the standard Red Mage, which focuses more heavily on casting.
