Final Fantasy Jobs: Geomancer

Geomancer

Appearances: FF3, FF5, FF6, FFT, FFTA2
Aliases: None

Geomancers use attack magic primarily, but instead of having a set list of spells, their magic is determined by the setting they are fighting in, and don't use MP. For example, if fighting in a desert or mountains, Geomancers might cast Earth magic. They wear funny little stocking hats that look like they're ready for bed and equip bells.
