[FFXII: TZA] Recommended Espers Allocation

This article contains a recommended list of skills for certain job class depending on which Esper to assign.

This article contains a guide on the recommended esper allocation. In doing so, it’ll allow a complete optimization of damage for both Esper and character.

Recommended Espers Per Job Class

Having recommended Espers already is a bit of a debate. But basing it off one which character should use it is a more complex affair. In the old Final Fantasy XII game, the Esper allocation did not affect the power or stat distribution of the characters. It also didn’t affect the kind of skills one would learn based on the Espers. However, ever since the International Zodiac Job System (IZJS), that mechanic has changed. Having certain Esper licenses open on certain job classes may unlock certain abilities. Because of this, it may also affect your playing style and strategy.
