Overview

A Support Job (Subjob) is a secondary job that can be equipped to allow a character to use its Abilities and Traits, and to benefit, somewhat, from its Stats and Combat Skills.

Notes

  • The Support Job can be chosen in your Mog House (via the menu or by talking with the Moogle) or by talking with a Nomad Moogle.
  • Equipping a Support Job does not affect the Experience Points of the Main Job, and it has no effect on the level of the job in the Job Levels status screen.
  • An equipped Support Job does not gain any experience points, so to raise the level of a Support Job, you must switch it to be your Main Job.

Limitations

  • The equipped Support Job is temporarily restricted to half the level of the selected Main Job, and, as such, only gives access to Job Abilities and Job Traits available up to the displayed level.
  • The Support Job's Two Hour Ability cannot be used.
  • Armor and Weapons cannot be equipped based only on the Support Job; Armor and Weapons must be equippable by the Main Job.
  • Characters will not gain skill-ups to Combat Skills (including Magic Skills) which are usable only because of the Support Job.
  • Also, you cannot Merit skills that are acquired only through your support job.
  • With Dragoon as a support job, you cannot use the Call Wyvern job ability.
  • With Bard as a support job, you cannot equip Instruments and therefore are limited to only one song at a time.
  • With Corsair as a support job, you are limited to only one roll at a time and job-related increases won't be active.
  • With Beastmaster as a support job, you cannot equip Jugs/Broths and therefore are unable to use Call Beast. Also it is theorized that charm difficulty and duration is dependent on the level of BST main; for example in order for a level 70 PLD to charm mobs effectively with BST subjob, they will need a level 70 BST main.
  • Your support job does not play a role in what equipment you can use, only your main job influences it; with the exception of specific Latent Effect Items.
  • With Puppetmaster as a support job, equipping an Automaton can still raise the stats during combat. Whether or not this is a bug is unknown.

How To Obtain
