New Job: Scholar? (lol throw books?)

FFXI Scholar

Um.. Scholar.. lol book as weapons?

Oww, New Job :O

Mm hmm… Wohdo linked me last night… yea Scholar [1].

So what is it?

OVERVIEW: Equips books as weapons
WEAPONS: Flame Book, Light Book, Ice Book, Inferno Book, Illumina Book, Blizzard Book
# ABILITIES/MAGIC: Fight – Attack with equipped weapon
# Peep – Show enemy’s HP
# Scan – Show enemy’s weaknesses
# Item – Use an item from inventory
ATTRIBUTES: High magic, low HP
COMMENTS: Scholars’ sole defining ability is Peep or Scan. This allows them to spy on the enemy’s status, HP, MP and other statistics. In other games, this is a white magic spell or other ability. With average or weak stats all-around, this makes them a fairly unused job class.

That’s from FF3 [2]. Played it on DS… support class in that game… or nearly worthless… so lol, does it shows us AV weakness? ^^

I mean the last thing we need is more support jobs… Dancer is already lol enough.. now Scholar? So um.. they are going to put out Relic Books for Scholar?

[Update] hehe, SE released a bit more detail [3] on their WotG website ‘.’

WoW’s coming out with a new class.. Death Knight… that is a tank class.. that doesn’t utilize a shield! Now that’s more cool (Hence, parrying is the only defensive stats ^^)! Well anyway T__T the xpac doesn’t sound promising to me. I hope more good stuff are goin to leak soon ^^
