Stat Distributions

Basic Stats

The basic stats range in rank from A to G. The actual stat is calculated based on your race and job level. In addition to the basic stat formula, some bonuses are applied, such as traits that affect them, as well as any stats your support job contributes.

Combat Skills

Combat skills range in rank from A+ to F. In addition to the job's native skills, you may receive some skill through a support job (max skill increase) or equipments' traits (actual skill increase). Note that combat skills aren't gained automatically at level-up, but you need to use the skill to raise it. The numbers below are the caps for each level.
Note also that Scholar's magic skills can change depending on which Grimoire they are using.

Stratagems

Stratagems are a mechanic unique to to the SCH job. They are automatically generated once the related Light Arts and Dark Arts commands are learnt at level 10, and each Light Arts and Dark Arts ability consumes one Stratagem charge. The max amount of charges you can have depends on SCH's effective level. When set as a support job, this means that the job level of a WHM/SCH 99 is level 49, and thus 2 Stratagem charges are available.

Note that the time required to charge up Stratagems is constant to full charges, not to one charge. Thus, when you gain more max Stratagem charges, the time required to get one charge becomes shorter. The time to full charges from 0 charges is always 4 minutes.

Level Max Charges Charge Time / 1
10-29 1 4 m
30-49 2 2 m
50-69 3 1 m 20 s
70-89 4 1 m
90-99 5 48 s
