Swift and dexterous, sky pirates sail the skies in search of treasure and adventure.

Sky Pirate is a job class exclusive to Vaan in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. It is a variant of the Thief job, carrying many abilities that make it easier to steal higher level loot and gil.

Vaan's high Speed stat helps to complement these abilities, but they are marred by low growth rates for every other statistic. This doesn't hurt the overall purpose of the Sky Pirate, which is looting an enemy's valuables, though to promote growth in other areas the player may want to change to another job and keep the Piracy ability set. The unique Salvage ability is useful in "Destroy all the traps" missions, as normally the only way to destroy them is to set them off. In other missions, Salvage can be used with Libra or a Ranger's Awareness ability to acquire extra loot.

The Sky Pirate can be an offensive force with repeated use of Steal to build up the power of Life of Crime. The player can focus on building up Evasion to compensate for low defensive capabilities. Having Sky Pirate as a secondary class for a Ninja and equipping two Reverie Shields, the Azure Tear and Ninja Gear will bring Vaan's Evasion to 80, and Razors Edge will bring it up to 100, dodging all damaging attacks 99% of the time. Life of Crime's damage modifier helps to combat the low attack due to not wielding a weapon.

Salvage can be combined with Ranger's any kinds of trap to gain infinite loot.

Air pirates, also known as sky pirates, are a type of stock character from science fiction and fantasy. Fictional air pirates typically operate as pirates in the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet, dwarf planet or moon, and travel by aircraft, as opposed to the more traditional pirates on the high seas, who travel by ship.
