Astrologian (AST) Actions, Traits and Role Actions


FFXIV - Disciples of War - Astrologian
Ever has man coveted knowledge, and none more so than that of his fate. Thus did he labor to master the skill of foresight - but initial efforts bore little fruit. That is, until he looked to the stars above, which foretell the coming seasons, and learned to read the heavens.
Though this gift is known today as astrology, the people of Sharlayan saw fit to not only read the stars, but to write their movements as well. By attuning their ethereal energies to that of constellations, they learned to wield magicks with heretofore unseen properties.

Thus was astromancy born - a new form of magick which grants its users power over fate. Employing a star globe and divining deck in their miraculous deeds, fortune always smiles upon these masters of arcana.


Astrologian was added at the start of the Heavensward expansion and begins at level 30. The job also has no corresponding class so all abilities earned are on the job itself. In order to become an Astrologian you must complete the following quest.

Quest NPC Location Conditions
Stairway to the Heavens Jannequinard Ishgard, The Pillars (X:15 Y:10) Quest: Before the Dawn

For each quest you complete, you will be rewarded with a new ability, while the latter quests will also reward you with artifact (AF) armour that is shown in the screenshot above.


Introduction to Astrologian


Astrologian is a healing job with no associated class. Its role is to restore the HP of party members that take damage from monsters, cure bad status effects from party members and to revive fallen members of the party upon death. The Astrologian can also deal damage with Holy, Aero and Stone but this should be seen as secondary to everything else.


Attributes


As a Astrologian your main attribute is Mind (MND) as this increases healing magic potency. You should be focusing on equipment with this stat. For secondary stats you should be focusing on the likes of Spell Speed, Direct Hit Rate, Determination and Critical Hit Rate in addition to simply boosting MND.

Spell Speed and Critical Hit Rate are self explantory in what they do. For the other two, Determination is used to boost the damage dealt by all attacks and the amount of HP recovered when healed while Direct Hit Rate is Stormblood's replacement for Accuracy. Instead of a simple hit or miss effect that Accuracy could give, having low Direct Hit Rate for a fight will reduce damage dealt so it is important to improve this stat.


Stances


Astrologian have two stances. These are called Diurnal Sect and Nocturnal Sect and the difference is that one is a healing stance similar to a WHM while the other makes use of barriers like a SCH. You can switch between them, but only outside of combat.

Depending on which stance you are in the effects of your spells will differ so it will be important to learn when best to use each stance.


Cards


Cards will play a role for the Astrologian's play style as you will be able to draw cards at random that give you one of the following effects.

Card Description Royal Road Effect
The Balance Increases target's damage dealt by 10%. Duration: 15s Next card has a potency of 150%.
The Bole Reduces target's damage taken by 10%. Duration: 15s Next card has a potency of 150%.
The Arrow Increases target's attack speed by 10%. Duration: 15s Next card's effect has an AoE with 50% potency.
The Spear Reduces target's action recast time by 20%. Duration: 20s Next card's effect has an AoE with 50% potency.
The Ewer Reduces MP cost of target's spells by 20%. Duration: 20s Next card's effect has double duration.
The Spire Reduces TP cost of target's weaponskills by 20%. Duration: 20s Next card's effect has double duration.



Actions


Actions are skills that the Astrologian 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 Astrologian actions are exclusive to that job.

Role Actions


Since the Stormblood expansion for FFXIV, cross class actions were removed and replaced with the concept of "role" actions. Role actions are more generic as they don't belong to specific classes, but instead to roles such as melee DPS, magic DPS, healer or tank. The Astrologian can equip up to 5 of these.

Name Level Cast Recast MP TP Range Radius


PvP Actions


From the Stormblood expansion PvP was revamped significantly and you can no longer use PvE actions during PvP battles. That means all of the actions above you can no longer use in PvP. Action Points (AP) were also removed. While some of the dedicated PvP actions do have the same name, they will have different potencies or effects. Below are the PvP actions that are unique to the Astrologian. There exists even more PvP actions and even traits but these are not unique to the Astrologian. You can find these further down the page.
