XIV

Thaumaturgy is a form of arcane manipulation that allows the practitioner to unleash (his/her) will as deadly manifestations of primal power. The origin of our art can be found in the cumbersome magicks of our ancestors - subsequently focused and refined through their use in the funereal rites of the Order of Nald'thal. Though once used exclusively for the preparation of the dead, these incantations of destruction soon found new purpose on the battlefield. Hm hm hm... "Death," of course, is still very much the central focus of the discipline.

The Thaumaturge (呪術士, Jujutsu Shi?) is a Disciple of Magic in Final Fantasy XIV, introduced in the original release. It may be upgraded to the Black Mage job using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest Taking the Black after Thaumaturge reaches level 30.

ProfileEdit

ThaumaturgeEdit

In the hands of a skilled practitioner, thaumaturgy can be a force of terrifying destruction. At the heart of this school of magic lies the ability to call forth and command the latent aether within oneself through deep introspection.

To then mold that aether into sorcery, the thaumaturge makes use of a scepter or staff, within which is housed a medium—a natural stone imbued with magical properties. The guild is centered at the Arrzaneth Ossuary in Ul'dah, within whose hallowed halls are said to reside powers of life, death, and the beyond.
—Lodestone

Thaumaturges are powerful spellcasters who use spells from the three primary elements fire, ice and lightning to deal major damage to their opponents. Their Intelligence and Piety are high but suffer from low HP and defense. They are considered ranged DPS for the purpose of party roles.

Thaumaturges can augment their spells further by utilizing the status effects Astral Fire and Umbral Ice. Astral Fire doubles the potency of fire spells but also doubles their MP cost and halts MP recovery. Umbral Ice, on the other hand, accelerates MP recovery. Both status effects halve the MP cost and potency of spells of the opposing element, but casting these spells will also remove the status. Later levels allow Thaumaturges to stack Astral Fire and Umbral Ice up to three times. Mastery of the Thaumaturge class requires knowing the right time when to switch between Umbral Ice and Astral Fire.

Black MageEdit

Elezen Black Mage XIV
In days long past, there existed an occult and arcane art known as black magic—a potent magic of pure destructive force born forth by a sorceress of unparalleled power. Those who learned to wield this instrument of ruin came to be called black mages, out of both fear and respect for their gift. Yet great power served to corrupt the judgment of mortal man, and so he unknowingly set out upon the path of ruin.

Adventurers who take the black will become agents of devastation, capable of annihilating those who oppose them through little more than the force of their will.
—Lodestone

Black Mage further enhances the Thaumaturge's offensive magic abilities. Black Mages can learn actions that increase the magic damage dealt, or reduce the cast time of spells. Aesthetically, Black Mages appear similar to Black Mages throughout the series.

EquipmentEdit

The Thaumaturge class is defined by wielding one-handed scepters or two-handed staves. At endgame, the available weapons are overwhelmingly two-handed staves while scepters are relatively scarce (the strongest as of 2.5 being the Allagan Scepter at item level 95). One-handed scepters have been phased out in Heavensward.

In terms of late game armor and accessories, Thaumaturges and Black Mages share "Casting" gear with Arcanists and Red Mages.

Job gaugeEdit

FFXIV Elemental Gauge image1

Elemental Gauge.

The Job Gauge was introduced to players in 4.0 Stormblood. These are on-screen indicators that are specific to each job. The Black Mage uses the Elemental Gauge.

The Elemental Gauge has multiple functions. The most important use is to display which elemental influence they are currently under - Astral Fire or Umbral Ice. Fire abilities used while under Astral Fire will have an increased potency but will cost more MP to use. The same can be said for Umbral Ice but Umbral Ice additionally increases the speed at which MP regenerates.

FFXIV Elemental Gauge image2

Foul can be cast.

Using Enochian while under either Astral Fire or Umbral Ice will allow the Mage to cast Blizzard IV and Fire IV. It will also increase damage dealt by a small percentage. Additionally using Enochian will add an additional bar to the lower right corner of the gauge. The bar in the added gauge will fill every 30 seconds while the status is maintained. A pink crystal will form when the ability Foul (acquired at level 70) is available to execute.

When the Black Mage casts Blizzard IV, the Mage will acquire 3 Umbral Hearts which are represented by three arrows on the lower left corner of the Elemental Gauge. A Heart is consumed each time a fire spell is cast, removing the MP cost increase created by Astral Fire.

AbilitiesEdit

All spells cost MP to cast unless stated otherwise, however, the MP cost varies depending on the level and class of the Adventurer, the spell in question, and whether or not the adventurer has the Astral Fire or Umbral Ice buff.

Limit BreakEdit

Thaumaturges' and Black Mages' Limit Breaks focus on dealing powerful damage to enemies in a circular area of effect. The damage dealt is determined by the combined weapon damage of all party members, thus, its damage is not based on the user's gear. The ability Swiftcast cannot be used to instantly cast a Limit Break. Thaumaturges and Black Mages both have the same Level 1 and Level 2 limit breaks as other Ranged Magical DPS.

EtymologyEdit

Thaumaturgy (Greek words θαῦμα thaûma, meaning "miracle" or "marvel" and ἔργον érgon, meaning "work") is the capability of a saint to work miracles. It is sometimes translated into English as wonderworking. A practitioner of thaumaturgy is a thaumaturge, thaumaturgist or miracle-worker.

TriviaEdit

  • During one scene in the Black Mage quest line, as two Black Mages approach the adventurer their eyes flash yellow, mimicking the traditional glowing-eyed look in earlier games.
  • In their original design, Thaumaturges were debuff specialists with access to Light and Dark-elemental offensive spells. After patch 1.20, the Thaumaturge was changed to an offensive mage, specializing on fire, ice and lightning magic. The Arcanist discipline has essentially replaced the Thaumaturge's role in debuffing, although Thaumaturges do retain the ability to inflict Sleep.
  • Golbez's fighting style in Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy is Thaumaturge.
