Mastery certificate description

The Ranger, also known as Hunter or Archer, is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained from the Fire Crystal. Rangers are highly skilled in the way of archery. However, they can be expensive considering the need to purchase arrows. With a bow in hand and arrows readied, rangers can deal the same amount of damage from either the front line or the rear line. They can also wield boomerangs.
