"Harnessing the power of their surroundings, they easily avoid pits and floors with damaging effects"

The Geomancer is a job in Final Fantasy V, which is given to the player after the Fire Crystal shatters.


The main cast as Geomancers.

The Geomancer dresses very heavily in what looks like mountain gear, since it must deal with a whole host of environments. Ironically, the player will be using this job to walk over lava pits most of the time, so insulation isn't this job's top priority. The look from character to character is fairly uniform, though Galuf and Lenna's outfits features striped pants and Krile seems to have yellow stars on her costume.


  • Job Command - Gaia
  • Innate Abilities - Find Pits, Light Step
  • Equipment - Knives, Bell

The Gaia command is very useful, especially in the hands of a spell caster. It has a random effect, based on the current location's environment. The effects caused by the command vary, causing something as simple as minor damage to inflicting instant death. Regardless, this command is based on the user's magic power and costs no MP, so it is a cheap alternative to magic. Find Pits will reveal trap doors, but only if the user is about to step on one, while Light Step lets the user walk over harmful surfaces like lava.

The stat modifiers for Geomancers are:

  • Strength: +4
  • Agility: +2
  • Stamina: +4
  • Magic: +24
