Geomancy, also known as Elemental, is a Geomancer's command ability. In Final Fantasy Tactics, every panel in the battlefield is designated a specific type of terrain to determine which Geomancy ability should be cast. If the caster has not learned the Geomancy ability of the grid that he/she is standing on, the command Geomancy will simply be unavailable. Generally speaking, the damage dealt by Geomacy is relatively low, but the advantages of Geomancy include 100% hit-rate, no charge time, no MP cost, 1 grid further casting range than most magick spells, and a chance of inflicting a status ailment.

The Geomancer's Geomancy abilities can be used depending on the weather and the terrain over which the Geomancer stands. There are four abilities in total, one for each possible weather situation, and other four for terrain types, so the player can in most situations choose one out of two abilites, considering the Geomancer has mastered Geomancy.
Unlike any other job, upon being unlocked, Geomancers have two mastered abilities: Shining Flare and Nature's Embrace.
