Alchemist (錬金術士, Renkin Jutsushi?, lit. Alchemy Magician) is a recurring job that appears in several Ivalice games in the series. Unlike the recurring item oriented job, the Alchemists of Ivalice are sorcerers that specialize in spells that inflict status ailments or deal non-elemental damage to targets.
Alchemist is a job for the nu mou. Alchemists focus on the offense, working to alter the composition of the opponent (Ex: Toad and Poison) or the environment (Ex. Meteor and Flare). Combining the alchemist abilities with White Mage abilities makes for a versatile unit.
The Alchemy moveset is mainly supportive, as only Protometeor, which deals non-elemental damage in a five-tile area, serves as a reliable source of damage. Flare is also a reliable spell, but requires two turns to cast (without Halve MP or the MP Efficiency/MP Channeling clan privileges).
Alchemists appeared as a Nu Mou job.
