The roots of arcanima can be traced back to the esoteric calculations practiced by the people of the south sea isles. It was their efforts to express the nature of aether in mathematical terms that gave rise to the exacting science that we practice today. These definitive formulas are represented by "arcane geometries"—patterns that allow arcanists to manipulate aetheric energy and produce specific effects. The ability to shape this energy also allow practitioners to manifest arcane entities known collectively as "Carbuncle." This is perhaps the most defining power attributed to the art of arcanima.

Thubyrgeim, on arcanima

The Summoner is a job in Final Fantasy XIV, introduced along with the Discipline of Magic Arcanist in A Realm Reborn. Players start as a Arcanist, and may upgrade to Summoner using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest "Austerities of Flame" after Arcanist reaches level 30.

The player may also upgrade to the Scholar job using the Soul Crystal obtained from the quest "Forgotten but Not Gone" after Arcanist reaches level 30. Both jobs are allowed to be unlocked on the same character and share experience points. As such leveling one job will also level the other.

Profile[]

Arcanist[]

Arcanist Class Artwork ARR.jpg

Accompanied by a familiar in battle, adepts of the art of arcanum derive their might from symbols of power born of geometric techniques hailing from across the southern seas. Held within special grimoires, these symbols lend shape to the arcanist's aether, thereby allowing them to produce a myriad of powerful spells.

Using magicked gemstones upon which the selfsame symbols are graven, arcanists are also able to summon forth the ephemeral being Carbuncle to carry out their bidding.

Lodestone

Arcanists wield grimoires in battle. Initially limited primarily to Ruin for direct damage, they also utilize spells that deal damage over time and spells capable of healing and reviving allies, however, its healing effectiveness wanes quickly.

Their defining trait is their ability to summon pets into battle. The Emerald Carbuncle, obtainable at level 4, specializes in ranged and area-of-effect damage, while Topaz Carbuncle, obtainable at level 15, focuses on tanking abilities. Though the Arcanist's role is that of DPS, at low levels it can be very versatile, effectively switching from a DPS to a healer when the situation demands. As it levels up, however, its stat growth, abilities and spells will focus more and more on pure DPS.

Summoner[]

The beast tribes of Eorzea worship and summon forth beings known as primals, among which are Ifrit, Garuda, and Titan. Yet what is a god to one man is a demon to another, for the city-states of Eorzea see these beings as a grave threat to their collective survival.

In times immemorial, there lived mages who had not only the power to summon the primals, but also the means to transmute the primals' essences, thus binding them to their will. Known simply as summoners, the existence of these men and women and their arcane art have been all but lost to the ages.

Lodestone

Summoners can summon the "essence" of the Eorzean primals, giving them access to more powerful abilities and summons compared to the Arcanist. The Summoner's gameplay revolves in summoning phases of egis, Demi-Bahamut and Demi-Phoenix, each with unique spells. After reaching level 90 in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, Summoners can upgrade their egis to summon Ruby Ifrit, Topaz Titan, or Emerald Garuda which change their spells into the Demi-Primals' respective elements.

In Endwalker, Urianger Augurelt may change his job into Lythomancer, a special breed of Summoner, in The Mothercrystal trial when the player is a Healer.

Story[]

History[]

In the Third Astral Era, the Allagan Empire strove to conquer the star. As these war of conquest dragged on, the primal summoning rituals of the Empire's enemies grew more desperate. It was during these conflicts that a new breed of mage arose, who could transform the stolen essences of primals into allies - aetheric servants known as "egi", that were employed to great effect in the war against the summoned divinities. The Allagan people named these arcane adepts Summoners.

However, the Empire saw the emergence of mages who wield summoning magic to further their own ambitions. The once heroic reputation of Summoners was sullied, and people came to believe that those who practiced the art were tainted by the influence of the primals. Vilified and hunted by the superstitious, Summoners gradually fell in number until both their existence and their knowledge faded completely from the Empire.

Arcanist[]

The early Arcanist class quests focus on training under the supervision of Foreseer K'lyhia, starting with routine cargo inspection exercise. She later has the adventurer accompany her to investigate shady dealings with a goblin merchant, and prepares strategy to deal with likely hostilities. The turning point is at the level 15 class quest, "Over the Rails," when an official inspection of a merchant vessel Morningstar is revealed to be the notorious pirate captain Doesmaga. A man from her past, he tosses her grimoire overboard as she trembles before him.

She attempts to retrieve the salvaged grimoire from black market traders at Oschon's Embrace with aid from Thubyrgeim and the adventurer. However, the grimoire was too damaged by saltwater to be of any use, sinking her into the depths of depression. The adventurer seeks out K'rhid Tia, the absentee guildmaster. After fulfilling odd tasks for the eccentric guildmaster, he hands over a new grimoire asking it be given to K'lyhia. Receiving it snaps her out of her glum disposition and motivates her to to return to duty.

The final class quest, "Sinking Doesmaga," K'lyhia puts into motion a plan to defeat her nemesis and bring him into custody. With the adventurer's aid, she arranges to be smuggles on-board disguised as a dancer, while the adventurer poses as a merchant. The two corner the pirate and defeat him with arcanima, whose attempt to escape overboard is thwarted by Yellowjacket coast guard that capture him outside the galleon.

With the chains of her past behind her, K'lyhia sets out to look for the wayward K'rhid Tia. As a final lesson, Thubyrgeim teaches the spell "Bane" to the adventurer.

Summoner[]

Job quests[]

After completing their training at Mealvaan's Gate, acting guildmistress Thubyrgeim tells of a new job opportunity from a researcher of the Sons of Saint Coinach, who can be met at Apkallu Falls in Gridania. The scholar, Y'mhitra, mentions the discovery of an unearthed soul crystal belonging to Allagan practitioners of summoning magic who could draw upon the power of primals in an arcanima form called "egi." As the adventurer was both an accomplished arcanist and defeated the Lord of the Inferno, Ifrit, at the Bowl of Embers, she believes they are perfect for restoring the lost art. Traveling to the Sagolii Desert, the wellspring of fire-aspected aether is perfect for performing a ritual called Austerities of Flame, where Ifrit-egi is called forth and defeated in battle. With the primal bound to the soul crystal, the egi can be summoned into battle.

Following further training and a showdown with the Lord of Crags at the Navel, the Austerities of Earth is performed at the earth-aspected environment in Alder Springs. After binding control of Titan-egi, they are attacked by a dark summoner demanding they surrender the soul crystal. He is driven off, with Y'mhitra shaken by the mysterious assailant. Further factchecking reveals he was a former Immortal Flames soldier named Tristan Nightflicker, and has an old war comrade stationed in Little Ala Mhigo. Attempting to ask him about Tristan prompts an ambush, as he is working on his behalf and knows they're searching for him.

To better deal with the dark summoner, Y'mhitra suggests the adventurer get outfitted with Allagan garments of the Summoner. The scholars at Saint Coinach's Find agree to hand over intact pieces once several mirrorknights are driven away. Now outfitted with Evoker garments, Y'mhitra believes it is time to perform the Austerities of Wind and draw the power of the fallen Garuda. Drawing the egi to the wind-aspected Floating City of Nym, they defeat the tempestuous shade of the Lady of Vortexes and bind its power.

In the final quest "Primal Burdens," Tristan has begun attacking Saint Coinach's Find, apparently intent on confiscating Summoner soul crystals. He is confronted at the Singing Shards, where he is making deals with the Ascian of the Twelfth Chalice. In exchange for the soul crystal, the Paragon agrees to endow him with the egi of a long forgotten elder primal named Belias. Tristan uses the ancient egi in a pitched battle, resorting to absorb its power. The adventurer prevails against the dark summoner, who reveals that he had to put down his brother Kahedin after he was tempered by Ifrit, and vowed to eradicate primals. As he dies, he immolates in a burst of flame.

Though Tristan is defeated, Y'mhitra realizes that the machinations of the Ascians will risk besmirching summoning magic, and agrees to not let that happen. As a final lesson, she teaches the spell of Enkindle, a technique to awaken the latent power of the egi.

In the optional quest "A Relic Reborn (Veil of Wiyu)", Gerolt Blackthorn is flabbergasted to learn the adventurer had restored the lost art of summoning. He recalls a centuries-old legend about of a summoner named Wiyu, known for her distinctive green eyes. He agrees to try to help restore the ancient summoner's grimoire.

Heavensward[]

Y'mhitra tells how she has presented her research on the summoning arts to her colleagues, and they agreed to present them with new tomestones. Speaking with Rammbroes, he notes that they might be able to draw upon the power of Leviathan, Ramuh, and Shiva. The Singing Shards have an abundance of lightning-aspected aether, but try as they might, Ramuh-egi would not come to them. Perplexed, Y'mhitra returns to her studies to understand what went wrong.

With her continued research, she uncovers a new spell for Summoners to use. Before she can teach it, they are approached by Dancing Wolf of the Immortal Flames, who claims that a black-robed summoner matching Tristan's description had attacked a caravan in Eastern Thanalan. Confused by this development, they travel to Camp Drybone and speak with survivors, who confirm the assailant used Ifrit-egi. Regrouping at the Hall of Flames in Ul'dah, they learn that another attack occurred on miners in Central Thanalan. The survivor confirmed the nature of the attacker, and indicated he was after crystals. With this news, Y'mhitra concludes he must be trying to summon a primal. Dancing Wolf realizes that now many recent attacks attributed to Amalj'aa were likely due to Tristan.

With increased patrols in Thanalan, the attacks on trading routes have largely ceased. Dancing Wolf believes it is time to draw out Tristan with a sing operation. Arranging for a shipment of crystals to conveniently break down in Northern Thanalan, they lie in wait to ambush the dark summoner. The adventurer finds the silvery-haired black-robed mage with Ifrit-egi outside the convoy and defeats him. As Dancing Wolf examines the body of "Tristan," he recoils in shock when he sees that the man is the long-dead Kahedin. The Ascian of the Twelfth Chalice makes his presence known, expressing frustration over losing the two brothers as pawns to the Bringer of Light. Dancing Wolf vows to get vengeance for Tristan and Kahedin, but Y'mhitra warns that combating an immortal Ascian is no simple task.

Through further research in the tomestones, she learns why the Austerities of Lighting had failed: the adventurer's aetheric reserve had reached maximum capacity with the three egis acquired earlier, and thus Ramuh-egi would not appear. She finds an alternative technique, Trance, which bypasses the egi limit by meditating upon the power of the primal. To combat an immortal Ascian, they need a Trance of an exceptionally powerful primal. The best candidate is the very primal that ravaged Eorzea in the Calamity: Bahamut. The extent of his wrath had exposed nearly all Eorzeans, the Warrior of Light included. By meditating at the site of Dalamud's break-up in the Carteneau Flats, the Dreadwyrm Trance should be possible to achieve. As the Flats are currently a restricted area, Dancing Wolf arranges to smuggle Y'mhitra and the adventurer there under the cover of night. Within the Heliodrome, the meditation is disrupted by the Ascian of the Twelfth Chalice, who assaults them with various egi.

Despite the onslaught, the Dreadwyrm Trance is awakened, and with it the egi are banished. Wary at the newly acquired power, the Ascian flees. Y'mhitra wonders why the immortal would back off since there are at least two others present he could use as a host in the event of defeat. She theorizes lesser Ascians are restricted in terms of hosts—namely only the recently deceased—and the long deserted Carteneau Flats would have left the Ascian with no place to go in the event of death. As she learns additional information about the Trance technique, she comes up with a plan to eliminate the Ascian menace.

She claims the secret to fully mastering the Trance, a way to unleash all its power in a singular outburst, will require additional knowledge in a tome stored at the abandoned Great Gubal Library in the Dravanian Hinterlands. Just outside the library, she, the adventurer, and Dancing Wolf are accosted by the Ascian of the Twelfth Chalice. Along with three other minions of Lahabrea, they try to overwhelm the Bringer of Light in an ambush before the secret knowledge could be obtained. This is part of Y'mhitra's ruse: full mastery of the Trance is only required in the heat of battle, which the Ascians provided. The dark Paragons are overcome, and with a the Dreadwyrm Trance fully awakened in the form of a mighty Deathflare, the lesser Ascians are annihilated in the remote Dravanian wilderness.

Equipment[]

A miqo'te summoner with the Meteorologica and Beckoner's artifact armor.

Arcanists and summoners wield books as their weapons, some of which they share with scholars at lower levels. Their armor is primarily made up of "Casting" gear, armor with low physical defense and high magic defense that they share with other magical DPS classes.

The primary attribute for arcanists and summoners is intelligence, which boosts their attack magic potency, and should always be prioritized over other attributes. As DPS disciplines, they draw the most benefit from the critical hit, direct hit, spell speed, and determination secondary attributes, which all improve their damage dealing capabilities in some way.

Job Gauge[]

Aetherflow Gauge

The Job Gauge was introduced in 4.0 Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. Arcanist and both of its jobs use Aetherflow Gauge. The Summoner uses the Trance Gauge instead.

In 6.0 Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the Summoners receive an overhaul to their Trance Gauge. When they learn the action Aethercharge, the Trance Gauge will be displayed, showing the amount of time remaining for Aethercharge.

Aethercharge will grant Ruby Arcanum, Topaz Arcanum, and Emerald Arcanum. Using these will allow the Summoner to summon from the choice of three pets by performing Summon Ruby, Summon Topaz, or Summon Emerald, gaining the attunement that is associated with it. Attunement stacks and their duration will be displayed on the Trance Gauge. When the Summoner achieves level 90, they gain Summon Ruby II, Summon Topaz II, or Summon Emerald II, fully summoning the primals associated.

When the Summoner summon a pet, they will gain the aether that is associated with it. Aether stacks and their duration will be displayed on the Trance Gauge. They will change the qualities of Gemshine and Precious Brilliance (acquired at level 26). Upon learning the trait Elemental Mastery (acquired at level 86), Astral Flow will change to match the type of attunement.

When the Summoner learn the trait Aethercharge Mastery, the Trance Gauge will be displayed, showing the amount of time remaining for Dreadwyrm Trance, granting Ruby Arcanum, Topaz Arcanum, and Emerald Arcanum. While Dreadwyrm Trance is active, Ruin III becomes Astral Impulse, and Outburst becomes Astral Flare. Upon learning the trait Enhanced Dreadwyrm Trance at level 70, the Summoner will be able to call forth Demi-Bahamut. The time remaining on Demi-Bahamut's summon will be displayed on the Trance Gauge.

Finally, when the Summoner learns the trait Enhanced Summon Bahamut at level 80, they will be able to call forth Demi-Phoenix, granting Ruby Arcanum, Topaz Arcanum, and Emerald Arcanum. When Demi-Phoenix is on the field, Ruin III will become Fountain of Fire, Tri-disaster will become Brand of Purgatory, and Astral Flow will become Rekindle. The time remaining on Demi-Phoenix's summon will be displayed on the Trance Gauge.

Behind the scenes[]

The Arcanist class has been present in the game data since the beta of Legacy Final Fantasy XIV, but was never made playable during the original run. Data mined from the client shows it was planned to fight with magical traps and use a mechanical staff. The class had a guild in Limsa Lominsa in the original game, but it was only used in a few quests. The mechanical staff would later be heavily referenced in the Summoner job questline for Stormblood where it was revealed that at some point, Sari of the Allagan Empire developed technologies made to enhance summoning magics, foregoing the use of grimoires in favor of high-tech devices.

In A Realm Reborn, the class has been repurposed as a summoner class, and was first seen in an early leak from the website. The page was quickly taken down after it was discovered by players.[1] The class reveal was later confirmed during the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary event. The class retains its Lominsan origins, but nearly everything else about their concept was altered.

Arcanist was the first class in Final Fantasy XIV to receive two branching job options, and the only class to date to receive them before it was even released. Director Naoki Yoshida has indicated other classes may get branching jobs in future updates.

During Beta 2 of A Realm Reborn, data mined from the client showed that there were plans to give Summoners a Ramuh Egi on top of the existing Ifrit, Garuda, and Titan ones. In the final beta/release client, however, this was not implemented, and no model for the Ramuh Egi exists in the client, although Naoki Yoshida admitted at the "F.A.T.E. in Tokyo" event that a Ramuh Egi is planned as a summon in the future, along with a Leviathan Egi. However, they ultimately decided not to add new egi to the SMN job in Heavensward for balance reasons, instead considering offering alternate egi forms to the three roles. In patch 3.5, this was released as the Egi Glamour system. This is unlocked after completing the quest "An Egi by Any Other Name." Currently, the egis can only be swapped for colored carbuncles; Emerald for Garuda, Topaz for Titan, and Ruby for Ifrit.
