FFXIV - Disciples of War - Ninja
Hailing from the war-torn lands of the Far East, the secret arts of the ninja were born of necessity, and have since given rise to a unique breed of highly-trained combatants.

Able to manipulate the vital energies of the land, the air, and living beings, they manifest their power through the weaving of signs, unleashing a wide array of attacks against their foes. Master the arts of the ninja and learn to bend the tide of battle to your will.

Ninja was added in patch 2.4 of FFXIV: ARR along with its class Rogue.
A Rogue can become a Ninja by equipping the Soul of the Ninja item after completing the first quest.

Quest NPC Location Conditions
Peasants by Day, Ninjas by Night Jacke Limsa Lominsa - Lower Decks (X:8 Y:16) ROG 30, PGL 15

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. Below is a list of abilities that the Ninja job can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available.

As a Ninja you should be focusing on DEX as this increases attack power by Rogues and Ninjas.


Abilities


Abilities are actions that the Ninja 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 Ninja actions are exclusive to that job.
