Lalafell Arcanist
Adepts of the art of arcanum derive their might from symbols of power born of geometric techniques hailing from across the southern seas. Held within occult grimoires, these symbols lend shape to the arcanist's aether, thereby allowing him to produce myriad powerful spells.
Using the selfsame symbols to unlock the latent power contained within gemstones, arcanists are also able to summon forth the familiar known as Carbuncle to carry out their bidding.

Play Style

The Arcanist is a class with powerful damage-over-time (DOT) and debuffing abilities. The emerald carbuncle, called forth by Summon, is a spell casting, damage dealing pet; while the topaz carbuncle, invoked by Summon II, is a mighty tanking pet. The most important stat for the arcanist is either intelligence or mind. This depends whether the player chooses to be a Summoner or Scholar respectively.
