Thief is boring, annoying and f*****...
They are weak and frail. Their only positive trait is a bit of speed.
Their skills are unreliable. (even steal heart, the best, has the gender requirement on top of random chance). Ok, steal weapon is more game breaking, but try to rely on that...

They make you reset the console most of times when enemies steal you, and you have to "linger" battles because of the crappy chances of stealing.
Stealing Elmdor for example, is a chore, not a good use of a unit's skill.

    I would say from this list Archer, but Calculator is the worst imo. (and the worst special is Holy Swordsman!)

    Archer.

    Crappy skillset, crappy damage, crappy HP. Only reason to use Archer is to get into Thief, grab Move+2 and get out.

    my thoughts exactly
    a cool thing in 1.3 would be to allow archers to equip 2 crossbows if two-swords is on, opening the way to a potential 4x hit

    I voted Mediator, though conceptually I like them lots.  They just have such BAD stats, and in Vanilla their skills sucked, and even in 1.3 their only use is to learn Talk Skill so another job can use the abilities properly.  Sad, sad Mediators.

    Personally, I never saw much use for archers, though I became a believer once I discovered how to use the longbows properly, and 1.3 has made me trust in the Crossbow as well.  I just wish they had interesting skills.

    All this Oracle hate makes me sad.  Ilean the Two-Hand Oracle with Draw Out was one of my final units in my Vanilla file.  500+ damage with a Stick.  :D
    Bad code, beware! The NOPs are coming to eat you!

    Archer is unnecessarily weak.  Charge might be a decent sub in Chapter 1, but it loses value in the original since:

    1. Short Charge doesn't affect charge.
    2. The damage boosts (of +WP) decrease relative to one's WP as the game progresses.
    3. Bows lack power.
    4. Archers lack HP.
    5. Gunner Knights > Archery Knights, while Ninja/Thief > Archer/Thief (so archer's two main subs are overshadowed by chapter 4, if not earlier).

    The destruction of the will is the rape of the mind.
    The dogmas of every era are nothing but the fantasies of those in power; their dreams are our waking nightmares.

    I dislike Squire. Especially on a generic.

    Umm, only generics have Squire, but I do agree they could be better.

    In my personal patch I changed them into classic style Warriors with a bunch of nice physical attacks and moved most of their original skills to other appropriate jobs.

    Chemist for me.

    Decent for some of the first chapter, MAYBE the whole first chapter.
    Too many things too much better.

    Has love problems

    Archers for me.
    Even their 'charge+' is good, they still lack flexibility or versatility when it comes to skills.

    2nd: Knights' skills
    3rd: Oracle
