Arcanist

Arcanist (ACN) Actions, Traits and Role Actions


FFXIV - Disciples of Magic - Arcanist

The Arcanist class has been announced to be a new magic based class with a focus on crowd control and support abilities. The class will make its debut at the launch of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn.

Adepts of the art of arcanum derive their might from symbols of power born of geometric techniques hailing from across the southern seas. Held within occult grimoires, these symbols lend shape to the arcanist's aether, thereby allowing him to produce myriad powerful spells.

Using the selfsame symbols to unlock the latent power contained within gemstones, arcanists are also able to summon forth the familiar known as Carbuncle to carry out their bidding.

By completting quests the Arcanist can become a Summoner and a Scholar. Summoner will give it access to miniature primals to summon called Egis while scholar will have a fairy pet.



As an Arcanist you should be focusing on INT as this increases magic attack power.


Actions


Actions are skills that the Arcanist can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Arcanist actions are exclusive to that job.

Patch 2.1 removed Thunder from being cross-class, made Blizzard 2 cross to mages instead.

@ Mistle - That's because in a somewhat recent update, they removed it from the list of abilities you can cross class from THM. Instead, they replaced it with Blizzard II.

Thunder is a thaumaturge only skill. Whitemage and arcanist can't use it anymore though, they took it out with the new update. 2 dots isn't fair apparently. ;P

How come I don't see level 30 "Bane" in my Actions & traits in-game? .. or is it a quest reward from the Arcanists guild.
