Weapons: Books, Lv. 1 – 3 white magic, Lv. 1 – 3 black magic
Scholars are an odd class. First off, they literally whack enemies with books. Who does that? And it works! Books have all sorts of different elements too. Not to mention, scholars can wear armor with high defense! On top of this, scholars can use elementary white and black magic.
However, scholars suffer from very poor vitality growth and stat growth overall, so leave them in a job for too long and you might find their HP to be lagging behind (remedy by giving the character some training as a Black Belt ). In addition, their Study ability, which reveals details such as health, elemental weakness, and other information, is very situational. And when you finally enter the late game, you’re going to need to be able to cast at least level 5 – 6 magic, which a scholar cannot provide. Use one if you wish, but they are definitely not a replacement for a white mage or devout!
