Summoner(召喚士,Shōkanshi?) is a Job class in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Viera are the only ones who can become Summoners after mastering two Elementalist skills and two White Mage skills. Summoners, in addition to wielding staves in combat, are the queens of MP and have outstanding Magic power growth, compared to even the Nu Mou job classes.
Summoners are not to be taken lightly, especially if they wear a Black Robe and are imbued with Turbo MP and Doublecast. In addition to this, equipping the Ribbon will make the Summoner an obviously useless target to those with frequent preferences for status ailments, and with the Reflex reaction skill enabled, the Summoner becomes seemingly, but not always, untouchable in physical combat.
Summoners are the strongest Magic-oriented Viera job, having the highest MP, Magic Power and Resistance out of all Viera jobs. Like most magic jobs, this power comes at the cost of HP, Attack, Defense and Speed, all of which are abysmally low.
