"Archers stand out of harm's way, raining arrows upon their foes from afar."

The Archer job class is available to Hume and Viera in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Archers are well known for their long range attacks via bow-wielding in combat. They are very useful units that allow you to inflict damage on the first turn. Their "Focus" ability prepares a powerful attack, and several other abilities inflict status effects upon enemies. A useful ability against undead is "Burial," which removes undead from battle entirely and thereby prevents their resurrection. An Archer works best with a strong melee unit acting as a protective shield, to stop incoming enemies. By mastering 3 Archer A-abilities, Humes can become Hunters, while Viera can become Snipers with two Archer A-abilities.
