Moogle that borrows strength from animals.
The Animist is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for moogles. Animists rely on the aid of the animal kingdom and can turn the tide of battle. Most of their abilities involve using an animal for personal gain, but some abilities can damage opponents. Animists use the power of musical instruments and abilities such as Cuisine, which fully heals a unit, and 100% Wool, which bestows a unit the Protect and Shell status effects. Animist is a good support job.
Statistic-wise, the Animist is the moogle's basic attack-oriented job, having the highest HP, Attack and Defense of all the basic moogle jobs. Their strength lies in its abilities rather than stats. Compared to other basic Attack-oriented jobs, like the hume Soldier or the nu mou Beastmaster, the Animist is much more balanced between HP, MP, Attack and Magic Power, and focuses more on Defense and Resistance than anything else.
