Templar knights wield powerful weapons and have a repertoire of potent support magicks.


Templar is a job exclusive to the bangaa from Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.


Templars wield knightswords and spears, and primarily have supporting abilities. Despite this, Templars make great attacking units. As the only class besides Dragoon to use spears (with the exception of "equip everything" classes, such as the Chocobo Knight), the Templar is the only other class able to use the Jump ability.

The Templar is an anti-mage specialist, as his skillset is focused on torturing magick-focused jobs. The Bishop's Intercession commands are not easy to come by and unlocking this class may prove difficult, but it is worth the effort for the Templar's great stats in HP, Defense, and Attack. Although he has poor Speed, Haste should fix the problem.

Knights Templar were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and among the most prominent actors of the Christian finance. The organisation existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. They held great power throughout Europe before being forcibly dissolved through violence by Phillip IV of France in an attempt to attack the papacy. Pope Clement V tried to protect them, but failed. Nowadays, the Order of the Knights Templar is subject to numerous myths and legends.
