The other version of the Magus.

Combat: Magic

Weapons: Staves, Rods, Lv. 1 – 8 summons

The Summoner is a class that is sometimes hard to understand. In order to reach its full potential, you should do a few sidequests that will allow you to defeat Leviathan (Lake Dohr) and Bahamut (Bahamut’s Lair), unlocking two of the most powerful summons in the game. The other summons can be purchased and the last one from Odin isn’t as necessary. Once you have done that, in addition to purchasing summons from Replito , you’re ready!

Summoners are very similar to Black Mages, requiring MP to use powerful spells—“summons”—that involved using the power of another creature, such as Bahamut, to deal damage. However, Summoners can deal damage to entire parties without fear of skimping on damage, which Black Mages and Magus cannot do, and overall can give a Magus a run for their money what with the power they can provide. As a result, the Summoner is an incredibly viable job even with light investment. Make sure you put your Summoner in the back row. Similar to mage classes, they have very low defense, so watch out.
