Oracle. I never really find a use for them in my party. Easily replaced by a Mediator IMO.

I never really bothered to use Mediator or Oracle in Vanilla, except when I wanted to manipulate Brave or Faith.  I considered both to be mostly useless.  I suspect quite a bit that this has changed in patches such as v1.3.  They just need an extra kick.  I voted Oracle, but when considering rebalanced patches like v1.3, I think I would have to say Archer.  I don't find their Charge abilities appealing.

I would say oracle, except ive shortened the CT and increased the accuracy for their spells

i NEVER use mediator unless im trying to recruit a monster so thats my least favorite

Summoners in Vanilla had the terrible weakness of very slow spells.  I can see someone ditching them for that.  The only two strong points I can think of for Mediator however are... guns and recruiting monsters for poaching.  Or maybe three things.  Mimic Daravon could put enemies to sleep.  I didn't find any of their uses all that useful in Vanilla.

I suppose the reason why I voted Oracle over Mediator is Beowulf.

I've never been a fan of Time Mages. That doesn't mean I think they're useless, nor does it mean I never used them--I just like them the least.

Mediator gets my vote. I prefer Oracle after trying out an Oracle SSCC... You will never see something as fun as the Loss Strat. Also, never even touched Mediator whenever I played vanilla.

I like em all, concept wise.

Voted chemist since they're the most broken and without an easy fix.

thief.

crap for damage, there's very little to bother stealing.  outclassed in every manner possible.  Good only for training into being another job class and/or getting secret hunt + move +2.
Just another rebel plotting rebellion.

I chose Mediator. Their stats are outclassed by Chemists, and their skills are outclassed by Oracles.

Archer.

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

knight, because every other job has some use, but a knight really only has use for grinding (breaking the enemies stats than just running circles around it) or for and for stealing the genji armour, plus they have crappy movement and equips.

1.3 really makes them more useful

Knights do kinda fail at their job in vanilla. They seem to be intended to be tanks, there to take hits effectively on the front line.

I blame how they did items, myself. When the thief hat has 20 less health than a crystal helm, heavy armor wearers are at a large disadvantage already.

I dislike Oracles.. Their spells seem to have a low chance to hit, and even if they hit, it doesn't do much good except for spells like Petrify, Sleep, and Faith/Innocent (depending on what you're using them for)

But I love Mediators..Especially since I'm making them into a sort of 'Blue Mage' type I suppose. They still have Invitation...But that's about it for their skills. The rest are Monster skills, with CT and Mp costs.. I'll probably have to increase the skills Mp costs though..It's about...8 Mp for a Gigaflare? :/

waaat


summoner is extremely imba broken in vanilla

that is why their skills are so nerfed in 1.3


QuoteI never used it and I always did fine...

so? you don't have to use math skill to "do fine" in vanilla FFT

that doesn't mean math skill isn't amazing
