The Scholar is a Job in Final Fantasy XIV, introduced along with the Discipline of Magic Arcanist (巴術士, Hajutsu Shi?) in A Realm Reborn. Players start as an Arcanist, and may upgrade to Scholar using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest "Forgotten but Not Gone" after Arcanist reaches level 30 and completing the quests "Sylph-management" and "Sinking Doesmaga." Prior to Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, players had to have Conjurer at level 15 as another prerequisite to unlock the Scholar job.

The player may also upgrade to the Summoner job using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest "Austerities of Flame" after Arcanist reaches level 30. Both jobs can be unlocked on the same character and share experience points. As such leveling one job will also level the other. As Summoner is a more direct continuation from the Arcanist class, both being of the magic ranged DPS role instead of healer, details on Arcanist are covered on the Summoner page.

Profile[]

In an age long past, when mankind flourished under the radiance of arcane mastery, the island of Vylbrand was home to a city-state called Nym. Though the history of that age tells of countless wars waged with earth-shattering incantations, it was the brilliant strategic maneuvering of Nym's scholars that allowed their mundane army of mariners to throw back would-be conquerors time and again. These learned men and women defended the freedom of their tiny nation with their unique command over spell-weaving faeries, utilizing the creatures' magicks to heal the wounded and bolster the strength of their allies.

Lodestone

Scholars are accompanied by a fairy, which aids them in their duties. Unlike carbuncle or an egi, fairies do not attack enemies. Their primary attribute is Mind and they share the "Healing" branch of equipment with Astrologians and White Mages.

Story[]

A Realm Reborn[]

After finishing their Arcanist training, the Warrior of Light assists the Marauder Alka Zolka in his research on Nym and its military tactics. While searching for stolen Nymian artifacts, the Warrior of Light accidentally attunes to a Soul of the Scholar. With it, the they summon two aspects of the fairy within: Eos and Selene.

After Alka realizes how potent Scholars are, he wonders why the Warrior of Light only has a fraction of that power. As the fairy a Scholar summons lived in the Soul Crystal, Alka theorizes that any knowledge it could give is based on the memories of its fairy. To restore the fairy’s memory, the Warrior of Light visits the ruins of Nym in Outer La Noscea. The familiar sights help the fairy regain some memories, including the spell Succor, which the Warrior of Light learns. When they return to Alka, he theorizes that the fairy within each Soul Crystal is unique with individual thoughts, emotions, and memories.

Continuing his research, Alka finds records about Nymian Marauders. To test the synergy between Marauders and Scholars, Alka invites the Warrior of Light to help him dispose of a tonberry seen around Bronze Lake. When they confront the tonberry it mutters about "my sun." After defeating the peculiar tonberry, Alka tries to end it, but is stopped by the fairy. The tonberry escapes into Bronze Lake, the fairy appearing relieved.

With the discovery of an illustration depicting a garment Scholars used to wear, Alka designs a replicate of it and commissions the guildmasters of various crafters' guilds to create it. After the Warrior of Light gathers the garment, Alka shares information about a plague that ravaged the city of Nym. The Warrior of Light uses this knowledge to help recover more of the fairy’s memory by healing patients at Camp Bronze Lake and the fairy remembers the spell Sacred Soil.

The Marauders' Guild dispatches Alka and the Warrior of Light to dispose of more tonberries that have emerged from Bronze Lake. The pair reencounters the peculiar tonberry from the first sighting. It begs the fairy to stay away before jumping into Bronze Lake and swimming to the Wanderer’s Palace. When they corner the peculiar tonberry, the fairy stops Alka from attacking it. Despite Alka's frustration, the Warrior of Light heals the peculiar tonberry with the fairy's help.

The tonberry wakes up far more coherent than it had been before due to the fairy's healing. After being apprised of the situation, the tonberry introduces himself as Surito Carito, a Nymian Scholar who fought the plague that turned the afflicted into tonberries. The afflicted had lost their minds due to the abandonment they faced after being quarantined in the Wanderer's Palace and the Soul Crystal the Warrior of Light had attuned to was originally Surito's, along with the fairy inside, whose name was Lily. Moved by Surito's story, Alka escorts him and Lily out of the dungeon. The Warrior of Light experiences a vision of Surito in his original form walking side by side with Lily.

When the group returns to Bronze Lake, Alka leaves for the Marauders' Guild, unsure of how to explain the situation to his superiors. Surito gives the Warrior of Light a traditional Scholar's gown, the spell Lustrate, and his blessing to keep the Soul Crystal. He explains that the Soul Crystal no longer responds to him due to his affliction, and how he sees the Warrior of Light as a fit inheritor of its knowledge.

Equipment[]

An elezen scholar with the Physica and Arbatel artifact armor.

Scholars wield books as their weapons, some of which they share with arcanists and summoners at lower levels. 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 primary attribute for scholars 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[]

Aetherflow Gauge

The Job Gauge was introduced in 4.0 Stormblood. Arcanist and both of its jobs use Aetherflow Gauge and the Scholar uses the Faerie Gauge.

The Aetherflow Gauge indicates how many Aetherflow stacks are available. Using the Aetherflow command grants a maximum of three stacks, depending on the player's level. A stack is consumed when executing certain actions such as Energy Drain. Aetherflow stacks are also represented by the Aetherflow Aetherflow status on the Scholar.

Faerie Gauge

The Scholar's Faerie Gauge indicates the current amount of fae aether within a faerie. Certain actions, such as Excogitation, allow the accumulation of fae aether. Maintaining an Aetherpact slowly consumes fae aether.

In Shadowbringers, the Aetherflow Gauge was slightly changed visually, but retains the three charges. After reaching Level 80, Scholars can summon Seraph, which runs on her own unique timed gauge

Abilities[]

When changing from Arcanist/Summoner to Scholar, most abilities that are shared between the two jobs have different effects. These changed abilities are marked by the game as Scholar abilities instead of Arcanist.
