Version 0.5: Added legal section, Cleaned up format, corrected a big job flaw _________________________________________________________________ |!!!Notice!!!Prior to version 0.5 i accidentaly had the hume job | |seer listed as Warrior, sorry for any confusion i caused | |________________________________________________________________| Version 0.4: Added new Sites able to post this guide, also corrected some of the job names. I was alerted to a possible M.ATT and M.RES error in the charts, so i am now looking into that... Version 0.3: The guide now conforms to an 80 line margin -.- Version 0.2: Added To Do list, and changed Job names To english Versions (Some are still wrong, email me if you have them) Version 0.1: Initial WriteUp =============================================================================== [2.1] Whats in this guide? =============================================================================== This guide is for use with Final fantasty Tactics A2 (or advanced 2) for the DS. This lists the amount of points added to each unit when they level up, and are a certain Job . this can be used to help better make your character. One thing to keep in mind, if you start your character off as a mage, and level him up, there is no point in making him a fighter later, because you have been working on his MP and his Magick attack. This guide is Usable for all versions of Final fantasy Tactics A2, I have confired the Jap versions are the same as the English one. =============================================================================== [3.0] Explination of the charts =============================================================================== As terrance states: First, quick explanation on how I'm going to lay this data out. Each Job has a Base and a Growth for their main 7 stats: HP, MP, WAtk, WDef MPow, MRes and Spd. The first number listed next to each stat is the Base. The second number is the Growth. The Base is the stat they begin with when they join at L1. This appears to have no variance at all, and does not change. Please also note that WAtk, WDef, MPow and MRes are stored as *fractions*. The value you see in the game is 25% of the character's actual value. So a Soldier has a base WDef of 84 at L1, but this will appear as 21 ingame. Every level, their stats grow. There is a difference between how Spd and the rest of the stats grow. Normal Stats The Growth is the base amount the stat will increase by. This growth also has a Variance, which is equal to: [(Growth + 9) / 10]. So for a Growth of 1 to 10, the Variance is 1; from 11 to 20, the Variance is 2, and so on. Every level, the stat will increase by Growth. However, there is a 1 in 3 chance that you will get a lesser increase (Growth - Variance) and a 1 in 3 chance that you will get a greater increase (Growth + Variance). The maximum value you can have in these stats is 999. Note that this includes the hidden WAtk/WDef/MPow/MRes stats: they'll climb to 249.75 naturally and then won't grow any higher. You'll need bonuses from equipment, weapons and other things to take it higher. (Of course, I don't think you can even reach that high naturally, but that's what's going on behind the scenes) Speed Fairly easy. The Growth rate for the Speed stat is a simple percentage. That's the chance that the Speed of the unit will increase by 1 each level. The maximum Speed a unit can have is 149. You can get to L99 this time round, rather than the L50 limit in FFTA. That just makes the maximum values more important though: it's wastage once you get that far, so min/maxers will have to plan around that.

=============================================================================== Q: What is a ? I dont see it in my units job menu! A: There are certain jobs that only special characters may be. Some need to be unlocked and others come with the unit. Heres who can be what. Adelle - Heritor, Unlocked by doing the quest "Gifted" Vaan - Sky Pirate Al Cid - Agent Penelo - Dancer Hurdy - Bard Q: Whats the best job to use for ? A: Refer to the rating under the stat Q: You said has no good stats! why should i use it then?! A: Just because a job has bad stat growths, dosent mean that you should not use it. Every job has a redeming quality and a weakness. for example, while the Fighter job has low defence, and cannot equip heavy armour, it had a great Weapon Attack, and abilites that allow it to do alot of damage. Q: How do i unlock new Jobs? There blanked out! A: Jobs are enabled by teaching that character a certain amount of abilities. To teach a character abilities you equip them with a weapon that teaches them an ability. Then as you do battles, you will gain AP. after a certain amount of AP gain (different fir every ability) that ability will be mastered and you will no longer need to equip that weapon to use that skill. After you meet the requirments for a new job, you are able to switch to that job. To check the requirements, hover over it and press Y. Q: I dont see ! A: First of all make sure that your unit is the right race for the job. Second make sure that you have completed the quest to unlock the job. Q: Oh ok, what quest do i need to do?
