Ashe, also going by the name Amalia when she appears as a guest, is a playable character in Final Fantasy XII. She is a magick-oriented character by her stat growth, good for ranged combat and healing. Ashe first joins as a guest under the guise of Amalia, and later joins permanently on Dreadnought Leviathan. As she is the last of the six playable characters to join, she begins with the most licenses. Her starting level is determined by the current party's average level. Ashe's stats make her similar to a Red Mage due to the high potential with Black and White Magicks.

In the original PlayStation 2 version, Ashe's HP growth is low, but her MP growth is potentially the party's highest. Her Magick Power is tied with Penelo's as the highest, and her Strength, Vitality, and Speed are average. Due to her low HP and Vitality, one may want to equip her with long-range weapons: bombs, bows, or crossbows. Ashe makes for a good mage-type character, and giving her mystic equipment makes the most of her magick-geared stats. She may also be a good candidate for unlocking Espers.

In the Zodiac versions, she has the highest magick stat out of all the party at level 99. She having the fourth highest Strength at level 99 behind Balthier. Due to her all around high strength and magick, she can excel in both physical and magick oriented jobs. Her naturally high Magick Power can supplement Time Battlemage and combinations with that job that don't allow access to mystic armor.

However, any stat differences can be made up with gear and the differences in animation speed are negligible. Ashe can be built in any way without drawbacks.

After winning a boss battle the currently alive members of the active party perform a victory pose depending on what weapon they are equipped with. She can be developed to equip any kind of weapon, but her key art Ashe army depicts her with a one-handed sword (the dummied Hero's Blade), and she also starts with one when she joins. In the sequel she equips hand-bombs.

Quests[]

Amalia appears as a guest for the Garamsythe Waterway dungeon, but after fighting the dungeon's end boss, she leaves. Ashe joins as a permanent party member aboard the Dreadnought Leviathan. Soon after, Penelo also joins permanently and the player's final party is assembled. When on the overworld and in dungeons, the player can use Ashe as the party leader, but only Vaan is controllable in settled areas.

The first boss the party faces with Ashe as a full-fledged party member is Judge Ghis; if Ashe is in the active party during this encounter, Ghis will focus on attacking her when he is low on health.
