Astrologian (AST) Guide

If you are looking for THE FASTEST WAY to reach the level cap with any class or job within 7 days, this FFXIV Leveling Guide by Killer Guides is a definite must have! It comes with step-by-step leveling tips, quest walkthroughs, detailed primal battle strategies, extensive dungeon guides, and more.


We don't yet have an Astrologian guide, however the page exists for the gear section.

Astrologian is a support job that branches off the damage dealing class Archer. The idea behind the job is that it sacrifices some damage in order to buff party members via songs. This guide will talk about how to play the job at level 50 and it should be noted that it may not be the only way to play it. Others may disagree, but see it as a starting point and build on it from there.


The best gear for your Astrologian constantly changes depending on what was added in the latest patch so it is important to do your own research on top of this guide. We have broken the gear down into tiers in order to give some indication of what you can use before you get up to that item level tier.

In FFXIV all materia can be added to any slot so this guide only lists the materia that is useful for the Astrologian rather than where to put it.

Mind - Increased healing magic potency
Piety - MP
Determination - HP restored by healing magic
Critical Hit Rate - Chance of critical cures.
Quicktongue - Spell Speed

As you will be limited by how much of a certain stat you can apply to gear through stat caps it is a good idea to use a variety and add stats to gear which aren't already on the piece.

Well pointed out, I blame copy and paste when I created this page. I'll get it fixed tomorrow and check the other new jobs because the same may have happened.

This information is incorrect. "support job that branches off the damage dealing class Archer. The idea behind the job is that it sacrifices some damage in order to buff party members via songs. "

That's Bard!
