Best Job For Every Character In Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age:

Before you decide on who to choose for a specific job, keep in mind that all the characters can complete any of the jobs, so it is not compulsory for players to choose the characters listed in this guide, however, the characters mentioned for the jobs will have an easier time, compared to other characters due to their characteristics and attributes/strengths.


The Archer class focuses on ranged physical attacks with additional benefits. The ideal characters for this job are Fran and Basch, as they are strong in attacking from a distance.


Bushi is a class where the character uses Katanas. This class depends on both, strength and magic stats, to inflict physical damage to the foes. The higher the strength and magic attributes, the more damage you will do. The best character for this class is Vaan, as he has both the attributes needed for this class.


The Black Mage class allows the character to use offensive magic to eliminate the enemy. The ideal character for this class is Ashe, however, you can also use Penelo if you want.


Foebreaker is a tank class that stands at the front, as they block all the damage, allowing the other members of the team to inflict damage to their enemies from the back lines. Due to their Strength, Balthier and Basch are the best for this job.


The Knight is an offensive class, best suited for Basch and Balthier, however, Vaan can also be used in the Knight Job.


Another long ranged class, the Machinist class allows players to wield guns which they can use to take out their enemies from a distance. This job can be done on almost every character, however, Fran is the best fit for it.


The Monk is a well rounded class which has both, offensive and defensive capabilities. The class allows your character to master hand-to-hand combat, with a little bit of healing magic. Similar to the Bushi, the Monk class is ideal for characters who have high strength and magic stats. Vaan excels in both of these categories, making him the best character for the job.


The Red Battlemage is a mixture of both, the white and black mage. This class benefits from a character’s Magic stats, making Penelo and Ashe the ideal candidates for this job.


Somewhat similar to the Knight class, the Shikari is an offensive class which can soak up a lot of damage. Vaan and Balthier are the best for this class. If she has the right equipment, Penelo can also be very useful in this job.


The Time Battlemage is a support class which will require high Magic stats. Penelo, Ashe and Vaan all have high Magic stats, and are the best for this class. This class has a bunch of support spells that will aid your team in tough battles.


Another ranged class which uses spear to attack the enemy from a distance. Along with the long range attacks, the Uhlan class inflicts debuffs to the enemy it attacks. This class can be extremely useful in battle, and Fran is the best character for this job.


The White Mage is a healer class that can save your character’s life in tough battles. Like in every other mage class, Penelo, Ashe and Vaan are ideal characters for this class, as they have a high magic stats. However, Balthier can also be a white mage, if you choose to do so.

These are the ideal characters for all the jobs in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. Keep in mind, that weapons and equipment, along with other gear, have a huge effect on how a character performs in a job. Some items might make another character better, so that is something that players will have to keep in mind, while playing the game.
