Astrologian is a job in Final Fantasy XIV, debuting in the first expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. Like with other jobs introduced in the expansion, Astrologian has no base class and starts at level 30. Astrologian is a healing job, like White Mages, Sages, and Scholars.

Profile[]

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 aetherial 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.

Lodestone

Alongside healing, the Astrologians use the unique mechanic of Divination using their Tarot cards to buff their allies. In Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the Astrologians receive an overhaul to make them Pure Healers as opposed to hybrid of Pure and Barrier Healers with their Sects like past expansions. In Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, Urianger Augurelt upgraded his job into Astrologian.

Story[]

History[]

The Sharlayan sage Lewphon devoted two decades of his life in the years of the Sixth Astral Era to compile a comprehensive study on the merits of stargazing. By analyzing the expansive historical records of man's attempts to read his own fate, Lewphon hoped to separate the fables of superstition from the more reliable knowledge of evidence-based astrology. What his methodical scrutiny uncovered, however, was that much of the ancients' wisdom was founded in legitimate arcane theory. This revelation shifted the entire focus of his research, and his subsequent efforts to reconstruct and adapt these principles resulted in the creation of "astromancy"-an art which attuned the wielder's aether to the movement of the heavens.

Following Lewphon's discoveries, the cards of the fortuneteller-previously considered an amusement fit only for children were re-evaluated from an academic perspective. The deck of arcana, with its cards representative of the constellations, was integrated along with the star globe into a uniquely Sharlayan discipline of magick.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

The Astrologian questline starts after agreeing to study Sharlayan astrology with Jannequinard de Durendaire. Jannequinard is expecting an important visitor from Sharlayan and asks the Warrior of Light to inquire with other students of the Atheneum Arcaneum on the visitor's whereabouts. A student has overheard Chief Astrologian Forlemort speaking with one of his aides regarding Sharlayan.

FFXIV-Mace-with-bandits

Professor Mace surrounded by bandits.

Jannequinard journeys south to Coerthas Central Highlands to ask his uncle himself. A series of unpredictable circumstances has forced the Sharlayan party to make a detour through the South Shroud. Jannequinard asks the Warrior of Light to journey to Quarrymill, meeting his retainer Quimperain along the way.

FFXIV-Soul-of-AST-glows

The Soul Crystal glows.

In Quarrymill, the Warrior sees Professor Mace waylaid by bandits, and his granddaughter Leveva Byrde protected by Quimperain. The crystal housing the Soul of the Astrologian glows as the Warrior of Light arrives, prompting Mace to throw it so the bandits would not steal it. The bandits leave with Mace, planning to steal his wares. Leveva, noticing the thrown crystal, deduces that the Warrior of Light is the one her grandfather saw in a reading before they left Sharlayan. Leveva plans to rescue her grandfather, with the help of the Warrior and Quimperain.

The Astrologian questline focuses on exploring the relationship between Sharlayan astrology and Hingan geomancy.

The Warrior of Light and Levava reunite and begin preparing for a Symposium to introduce Sharlayan astrology to Ishgard. They are interrupted by the sudden arrival of a Hingan Geomancer named Kyokuho Moribe, who is interested in learning Sharlayan Astrology. While taken aback and this abrupt turn of events, Levava lets Kyokuho learn Astrology, though she delegates the teaching responsibilities to the Warrior of Light while she prepares for the Ishgardian Symposium. The Warrior of Light is pleased that Kyokuho is able to learn the fundamentals quickly, even if his impulsiveness leads to the Warrior of Light rescuing him from danger several times. However, Kyokuho's time in Ishgard was to be short and he abruptly departed for Hingan as quickly as he came.

Some time after his departure, Levava foresaw some manner of danger in Kyokuho's future and asks the Warrior of Light to find him in Kugane. After reuniting with the geomancer, the Warrior of Light learns of Kyokuho's troubles: A malevolent spirit is about to break free from its prison in Kugane, which would lead to catastrophe within the city. To make matters worse, his initial attempts to work with other Geomancers to reinforce the barriers failed and they no longer want to help him. The Warrior of Light agrees to help and suggests using Sharlayan Astrology in conjunction with Hingan Geomancy to strengthen the barrier. While they were able to strengthen the barrier, Kyokuho realizes that in the barrier's weakened state, the entity Kinko Kugane was able to regain some of her strength, which means the barrier will still degrade at a faster pace. Kyokuho also reveals that his grandfather, who initially placed the seal on Kinko Kugane, never actually completed the sealing ritual and never told anyone how to. Kyokuho consults with his geomancy teacher and learns that his grandfather may have hidden the instructions in Nagxia. However, after retrieving the scrolls on the ritual, Kyokuho realizes the reason his grandfather never completed the ritual was because it required a live human sacrifice and Kyokuho, much like his grandfather, is stauchly opposed to such a method. As Kyokuho ponders over what to do next, he and the Warrior of Light need to reinforce the barriers again. While they argue over what to do next, Levava suddenly arrives in Kugane and proposes a solution: using astrology and geomancy to quell Kinko Kugane's rage before trying to re-seal her. This strategy proves effective and the entity is sealed away again. With the crisis averted, Kyokuho decides to travel Hingashi to teach geomancy.

Equipment[]

FFXIV Stormblood Astrologian

A miqo'te astrologian with the Pleiades and Constellation artifact armor.

Astrologians wield highly ornamented planispheres, star globes, and other astrological devices as their weapons, which they use in conjunction with their cards to read the stars. Their armor is primarily made up of "Healing" gear, armor with low physical defense and high magic defense that they share with other healer classes.

The Astrologians' primary attribute is mind, which boosts their attack and healing magic potency, and should always be prioritized over other attributes. As a healer discipline, they have access to the healer-exclusive piety attribute, which improves their MP regeneration.

Job Gauge[]

FFXIV AST Arcana Gauge

Arcana Gauge

The Job Gauge was introduced to players in 4.0 Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. The Astrologian uses the Arcana Gauge.

FFXIV AST Arcana Gauge Royal Road

Using Royal Road

The Arcana Gauge allows Astrologians to keep track of which card (arcanum) is currently drawn. An arcanum is drawn by using the action Draw, and is placed in the middle of the gauge. Using the Play command executes the arcanum's corresponding action.

In Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the Astrologian's Arcana Gauge is updated. Upon learning the trait Enhanced Draw II, the Astrologian will be able to view astrosigns. Lunar, Solar, and Celestial are the three astrosigns, and one of these will be applied when executing a card action. When three signs have been applied, they can perform Astrodyne, buffing themselves.

Upon learning the action Minor Arcana, drawn cards (either Lord of Crown or Lady of Crown) will appear on the Arcana Gauge when Minor Arcana is used.

Other appearances[]

Final Fantasy Trading Card Game[]

Astrologian [2-130C] Opus series card.

Astrologian appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game as a Water-elemental Backup card.

Behind the scenes[]

Each card in Astrologian's divining deck, except for Lord and Lady, represent the six constellations of the planet's night sky. The symbols of The Twelve can be seen on the cards as well as the Divination ability introduced in Shadowbringers. When Astrologian was released, the night sky was simultaneously updated to clearly display the constellations.

Astrologian was originally planned to be Chemist. Due to balancing problems with the Mix command and the desire to implement an all-new weapon type, the idea was scrapped. Mixing items turned into drawing cards. The Stormblood expansion built upon this with the ability to turn standard buff cards into attack or heal cards, further echoing the use of Mix commands from other titles.
