Description

The bearer of this certificate possesses encyclopedic knowledge of the world and is deemed worthy of the title of Master Scholar.

Mastery certificate description

The Scholar is a job class in Final Fantasy III gained from the Fire Crystal. Using their analytical prowess, scholars analyze an enemy's HP and any existing weakness and use the mystical know-how of ancient tomes to damage their opponents. Their extensive knowledge allows them to double the effects of items they use.

Final Fantasy III marks the first appearance of the Scholar class, as well as the first use of books as a weapon type. In the 3D versions, the researchers in Saronia and the Ancient Ruins resemble the Scholar from the NES version.
