Black Mage Recommended Party Members

Party MemberReason for Recommending

Ashelia B’nargin Dalmasca

A character like Ashe, which has a high reserve of mana and the strength to hurt, will thrive as a Black Mage. The Black Mage uses some of the strongest elemental spells in the game and is perfect to use against enemies with a weakness to elemental spells. Ashe should do fine with the Black Mage as a first or second job, coupled with a melee job like Knight or Monk.


Penelo is another character with a high reserve of Mana. While her default character depiction assigns her the role of healer and support, augmenting these skills with the offensive power of the Black Mage makes sense. Penelo will create problems for opposing parties by supporting her allies from afar and mixing it with strong elemental spells, augmented by her magick lore.
