Nu Mou Alchemist
"A master of transmutation, the alchemist can alter nature at a whim"

The Alchemist is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, usable by the Nu Mou only. Alchemists feature astounding stat growths in both Magic and Resistance without the loss of too much HP. The Alchemy moveset seems to be supportive, as only Protometeor, which causes non-elemental damage in a five-tile area, serves as a reliable source of damage. Flare also does the job, but it requires two turns to cast (without Halve MP or the MP Effiency/MP Channeling clan privileges), and the Death spell has been transferred to the Arcanist. Aside from his normal abilities, an Alchemist can always use items, regardless of his secondary Ability slot, because he is endowed with an unique third A-Slot that is locked to Items, making Item Lore a good Support Ability choice. To access this job, a Nu Mou must have learned two Illusionist abilities. It should also be noted that Alchemists cannot learn any reaction abilities.

An Alchemist can actually have the longest Action-list possible, with a secondary A-Ability, a Scion Accessory and either getting an Opportunity Turn or standing beside a Chest/Quest Object.
