—In-game description

Summoner (召喚士, Shōkanshi?) is a job class in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, exclusively accessed by the viera race. Summoners, in addition to wielding staves in combat, are the queens of MP and have outstanding Magic growth, compared to even the nu mou job classes.

A crowd-control favorite, the Summoner has a versatile skillset at her disposal that allows her to simultaneously aid her comrades and hinder enemies. Care must be taken when placing the Summoner into the fray, as she is more likely to suffer from physical attacks due to her low Defense.

The only notable summoner in-game is Leanan, a famous inn songstress.

The Summoner is the best Magic-oriented job available for viera, having the highest MP, Magic Power and Resistance out of all viera job classes. Like most magic jobs however, this power comes at the cost of HP, Attack, Defense and Speed, all of which are abysmally low.
