Ranger, ranger!

Combat: Melee

Weapons: Bow

The ranger is an oft-overlooked job in favor of the shinier jobs you get at the Water Crystal, but is not to be scoffed at. The most obvious draw of a ranger (pun unintended) is its ability to stand in the back row by your mages while still dealing full damage, owing to the bow’s range. Additionally, arrows can be all kinds, from standard arrows to arrows imbued with elements, allowing you to exploit weaknesses—something many melee users cannot do. Unfortunately, the special ability, Barrage , is a bit of a letdown, attacking all enemies at once but cutting your attack. However many other jobs have lackluster abilities but are still great, so don’t let that discourage you. Honestly, the biggest drawback of the ranger is that you have to constantly buy more arrows.
