"Black Mages wield the elemental powers of fire, ice, and lightning to decimate foes."

Black Mage is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift that is usable by Humes, Nu Mou, and Moogles. Nu Mou, with their higher Magic stat, are the best race for the Job. Since Black Mages specialize in elemental damage, they are especially useful if you can exploit an enemy's elemental weakness, something that can be done easily with the aid of the Geomancy skill. Like in previous games, Black Mages have an astonishingly high Magic stat, decent Resistance, and high MP, but they are very frail and best kept from harm. A good technique is to have a Black Mage equip robes that absorb elemental damage, then target both the enemy and themselves with the proper spell for a potent combination of damaging and self-healing. Be aware, though, if you are equipping the Passive ability Geomancy while having any elemental-absorbing gear, because instead of gaining HP, it will actually have no effect.

Black King Nware of Cinquleur is a Black Mage and a worthy adversary.
