Learned users of sagacious magic.
Sage (セージ, Sēji?) is a job from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, exclusively for nu mou. Sages are similar to Alchemists in that they have some status ailment magic and wield maces in battle. While their Weapon Attack and Magic Power stats are above average, and they have high (the largest in-game) MP, they have one crippling flaw: they are the slowest job in the game. For this reason, it is to a nu mou's advantage to learn the Sagacity Skill action ability, especially the powerful spells Ultima Blow and Giga Flare, and then switch to a quicker job while equipping Sagacity Skill as the secondary action ability.

Sages have the highest MP growth in the game, and are also tied with Paladins, Templars, and nu mou Illusionists for slowest speed growth. Compared to other nu mou jobs, Sages have high HP, Attack and Magic Power, allowing them to be equally effective with magic spells as they are with physical attacks and Ultima Blow. They have mediocre Defense and Resistance.
