Description

The bearer of this certificate possesses incomparable knowledge of the world of magic and is deemed worthy of the title of Master Sage.

Mastery certificate description

The Sage is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained in Eureka in the Famicom and Pixel Remaster versions, and from the Earth Crystal in the 3D versions. Sages are adept mages who have mastered all levels of Black, White, and Summon magic. While they have numerous techniques at their disposal, their MP is limited compared to more specialized spellcasters. The Sage is considered a powered-up version of the Red Mage job, but it lacks the physical offense signature of a Red Mage in exchange for focusing on magical arts.

Abilities[]

Famicom version[]

  • Special ability - White and Black Magic Levels 1–8, Summon

The Sage can cast every spell, as well as the high level Summon magic, making them a real threat. Their MP growth exceeds those of the Devout, Warlock, and Summoner, so the Sage effectively makes those classes obsolete.

3D version[]

  • Special Ability - White and Black Magic Levels 1–8, Summon (White or Black)

Their MP growth is limited, meaning they cannot use the high level magics as much as the Devout, Magus, or Summoner. They can only use the Evoker versions of Summon Magic.

Pixel Remaster[]

  • Special Ability - White and Black Magic Levels 1-8, Summon

Much like the 3D version, the Sage's MP growth is limited and they cannot use high level magic as often as a Devout, Magus, or Summoner. In this version, the Sage regains its ability to use the Summoner version of the Summon Magic they lost in the 3D Remake.
