<< Back to Jobs[]

   Ninja is an agility-based job centered on throwing various items at enemies, using ninja-specific magics, and using shadow arts to aid with offensive and defensive combat. Using skills like Image and Mirage to help them evade attacks. Ninjas utilize a new resource: Shadows. Shadows are a resource used in many Ninja abilities. However, Shadows are generated in a unique way: dodging melee attacks. Each time a Ninja dodges a melee attack, they generate a shadow. In order to generate shadows by dodging, your primary or secondary job must be set to Ninja. In addition, there are several abilities in Ninja that also generate Shadows, like Image, Mirage, Blink, Smoke, and Abandon. Initially you can only hold up to 10 Shadows at any given time, but Lingering Shadows allows you to hold more.

   Along with their evasion skills, Ninjas gain access to Tonko and its stronger form Tonko Ni, which causes shadows to protect them from the damage done by enemy abilities. Ninjas gain access to several ninja-specific magics that hit all enemies in the room. Ninja magic can be cast without spending MP by purchasing ninja scrolls in Elsendor.

   Ninjas innately receive the effect of the Two Swords inherent, allowing them to wield two weapons at once.

   To use ninja's throwing attacks other than Weapon, you must have the item you want to throw in your inventory. It will be consumed when thrown. Throwing items can be bought in Elsendor.
