Sorcerer is a powerful magical attack job. A Sorcerer's magic comes from a darker origin than that of a Wizard, and its most dangerous spells are dark-elemental.

Sorcerers rely on their counterattack, Barrier Change, to provide them with elemental barriers that both defend against enemy spells and strengthen their own attacks. Though Barrier Change gives unpredictable results, it can be influenced by using Barrier Shift in an emergency. By dropping their barrier through the use of Dark Arts, Sorcerers gain access to their strongest ability, Dark Matter - but this is a risk, as it makes them vulnerable.


A powerful sorcerer-prophet from ages past may teach you if you speak to him.

If you have the Holy Knight job or the Cleric job, you cannot also have the Sorcerer job. See also 'help cleric_or_sorcerer'.
