The Bard

The Bard is a job class from Final Fantasy Tactics. It is a male-exclusive job, gotten by training a male unit in magical job classes. By singing, the Bard boosts all friendly units' stats, from anywhere on the field. The Bards have very high magical stats, but almost no defensive capabilities. Bards, like their female counterparts Dancers, can be used to gain high amounts of EXP and JP in a battle because their songs repeat based on how many turns the initial charge time was. It costs 7650 JP to master this job.
