The Sage is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained in the Eureka in the original, while it is gained from the Earth Crystal in the DS version. Sages are highly adept mages who have mastered all levels of the black and white arts. While they have numerous techniques at their disposal, their MP is limited compared to those spell casters who are more specialized.

NES version

  • Special Ability - All Black, White, and high Summon Magic

The Sage has the ability to cast every magic in the game, as well as the high level summon magic, making them a real threat. MP growth is higher than the Shaman, Warlock, and Summoner, so the Sage effectively makes those classes obsolete.

DS version

  • Special Ability - All Black and White Magic; White and Black Summon Magic

MP growth is limited, meaning they can't use the high level magics as much as the Devout, Magus, or Summoner; additionally, they are only capable of using the Evoker versions of Summon Magic.
