Job Overview

BLMJOB


Through devastating magic spells, Black Mages (BLM) bring tremendous firepower to the battlefield. A Black Mage's job is simply to cast offensive spells and destroy enemies. Although they are known for their Elemental Magic, they also possess a few highly-valued utilitarian spells. In battle, Black Mages are often called upon to participate in skillchains by finishing each chain off with a magic burst, adding even more destructive power to a party's repertoire. Players starting the game as a Black Mage receive an Onion Staff and a Scroll of Stone.
