Disciples of Magic

Update: This article is just a brief primer on disciples of magic. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples of magic, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review). I so wish I had gotten that when I first bought the game – it would have saved me a lot of time (which could have been used to improve the design of this blog instead :))

When it comes to choosing a combat-oriented class in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, players must choose between a Disciple of Magic or a Disciple of War. Disciples of Magic are the magicians and spell casters of the game. There are three different classes that belong to this group:

Conjurers are the first healing class in FFXIV: ARR and can eventually advance to a White Mage. They are attuned with the natural elements and can cast healing and support spells as well as offensive air spells, water spells and earth spells. While they are a healer, they can still go solo decently well.

The Conjurer class begins in Gridania. They are highly sought after in dungeons due to their healing abilities. Read the full FFXIV Conjurer Guide.

Thaumaturge class is capable of the most dangerous elemental spells in the game. They are a master of fire, lightning and ice and use each element with a destructive force that makes them a little vulnerable when soloing but quite brutal when in a group.

Thaumaturges begin in Ul’dah and can eventually advance to become the iconic Black Mage. They are a pure damage dealing class. Read the full FFXIV Thaumaturge Guide.

Arcanist is a caster who is very flexible. They are capable of a wide variety of damage spells including damage-over-time abilities and spells that cripple their enemies with status effects. They also have support abilities and the ability to summon a pet to control– the Carbuncle. The Carbuncle is a healing pet. This combination allows Arcanists to help out a group in a variety of ways.

Arcanists begin in Limsa Lominsa and can advance to either Summoner or Scholar. They are primarily a damage dealing class, but can also support a bit. Their advance job choices allow them to either heal or DPS. Read the full FFXIV Arcanist Guide.

On the chance of repeating myself, this article is just a brief primer on disciples of magic. Since the time of writing, I’ve found this guide. I recommend you head over and get yourself a copy as well. Not only does it have an insanely detailed chapter on disciples of magic, but an absolutely brilliant leveling guide as well (see my review).
