Joining Final Fantasy XIV’s assortment of job classes at launch are three new entries to the lineup: Arcanist, Summoner and Scholar.
As revealed on the Letter from the Producer Live at E3 this past week, the Scholar class will stem from the Arcanist and in the future players can expect even more jobs such as ninja or samurai. Like Summoner and Arcanist, Scholar will also have a pet “Fairy” inspired by Akihiko Yoshida’s “Flying Fairy” from Bravely Default. The fairy and Scholar’s abilities will function as a healing class. While White Mage is a large-heal type of healer, the Scholar heals players gradually over time.
