The Time Mage (時魔道士 or 時魔道師, Tokimadōshi?, lit. Time Magic Adherent), sometimes called a Dimensional Mage, is a job featured in various games in the Final Fantasy series. It is one of the staple mage classes in the series, though less common than Black Mage and White Mage.
Time Mages are classified by wearing traditional wizard's robes and pointy hats, usually with the shape of some type of heavenly body on it, such as a star or pentacle. Time Mages have low physical stats and high magic stats. They usually equip daggers, rods, hoods, and mage robes.
Their specialty magic is called Time Magic, and usually consists of spells that increase or decrease speed, such as Slow and Haste, and those that manipulate the forces of gravity, such as Gravity and Meteor.
After the Water Crystal's destruction, the Time Mage class is granted to the party.
Though there is no official job system, Tidus's section of the Sphere Grid contains the Slow and Haste spells, as well as their upgrades, Slowga and Hastega. Other abilities in Tidus's Sphere Grid, like Delay Attack and Quick Hit, allow him to attack faster and to slow enemy attacks in a fashion similar to the spells.
Time Battlemage is a class in the Zodiac versions. They use Time Magick, as well as all Green Magick spells and have access to numerous augments. They use the ranged Crossbow as their main weapon, but are equipped with Heavy Armor. They can switch to several types of swords for a more physical focus.
The Time Mage is a supportive magical job class, and if left alone, can quickly bestow a number of beneficial status effects on their allies and debuffs on their foes, turning the tide of battle. It costs 8,320 JP to master this job. As of War of the Lions, this job costs 8,920 JP to master, as several spells saw increases in JP needed to learn them.
Time Mage is a job accessible to nu mou and moogles. Time Mages' abilities cannot be predicted, but some classes, such as the Juggler and Ninja, can reap the benefits of Time Magic without the large MP consumption.
