Final Fantasy Wiki

A skilled spellcaster who uses his expertise in black magic to devastate his foes. The magus is a master of the black magic arts, making him a formidable offensive magic user.


Magus appears as a playable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. It is a Core class, unassociated with any specific title.


As with all Core characters, the Magus is a subpar character, with poor stats, limited Soul Breaks, and limited versatility. However, it is considerably more useful than other Core classes, on simple account that it has access to Rank 5 in its ability pool, letting it use all the Black Magic abilities in the game, and it has a passable Magic stat to make use of them. While the Magus is currently unable to reach Level 99 due to its Memory Crystal III not yet being available in the game, even at Level 80 it is vastly superior to the Black Mage; a Level 99 Black Mage has only slightly better stats than a Level 80 Magus, and the ability to use Rank 5 Black Magic more than makes up for the difference in stats anyway. While the Magus is still outclassed by dedicated offensive mages from other realms, if used in an Event dungeon where it gets Realm Synergy, it can be an effective spellcaster in its own right.
