The traditional Time Mage, as seen in Final Fantasy Tactics.

The Time Mage (時魔道士 or 時魔道師, Tokimadōshi?, lit. Time Sorcerer), 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.

Profile[]

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.
