What are the Best Jobs in “Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age”

Next on the list are the Knights as they are great tanks, particularly when paired with Black Mage or Time Battlemage as second jobs. Aside from tanking, they are also ideal to take most of the hits to your parties because they have the ability to reduce damages taken. Then there's Shikari that’s great as a Melee Damage and Uhlan or Red Battlemage. They don’t just throw huge damages to the opponent but are also great tankers too.

Last but not the least are the Time Battlemage. Its best role is support that’s usually paired with Monk or Bushi as a second job. With Bushi, the expect impressive strength stat and different magic buffs. Monk, on the other hand, is slower but is a good alternative for a Bushi.
