Mage masters of time and space.


Time Mage is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 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.



The moogle Time Mage is the most powerful magic-oriented moogle job, with a Magic Power stat rivaling that of the other races' best Magic-oriented jobs, and a Speed stat capable of out-racing most other magical jobs. Yet, the moogle Time Mage's stats are inferior to the nu mou Time Mage. This does not mean moogle Time Mages are useless, but they should differentiate themselves by using abilities to which nu mou Time Mages do not have access, such as Concentrate or Call.

Nu mou[]

Nu mou Time Mages are the kings of the magical world. They have the highest Magic Power, an impressive Resistance, and one of the highest Speed stats a nu mou can get. Like most magic-oriented jobs, their other stats are abysmally low, making them weak to physical attacks.

Time Mages are top-notch spellcasters boasting great support abilities. They have plenty of ways to manipulate battles into their favor, such as quickening a slow ally or stopping enemy thieves. They can halt even the fastest units in their tracks. Time Mages work well against other mages, having access to Silence and Reflect. Their lack of offensive abilities can be made up for by abilities from other classes, like Black Magic or Sage skills. This also allows Time Mages to put their excellent magic power to good use. Overall, Time Mages are top-tier mages, and the best magic-based job for moogles and most nu mou.

Speed is key against enemy Time Mages. It is advised to dispatch them before they start bending the turn order. Both melee fighters and other mages are underdogs against Time Mages, but Silence—as against most mages—works well. It is best to hit enemy Time Mages up close where they cannot defend themselves.
