- “In an age long past, when mankind flourished under the radiance of arcane mastery, the island of Vylbrand was home to a city-state called Nym. Though the history of that age tells of countless wars waged with earth-shattering incantations, it was the brilliant strategic maneuvering of Nym's scholars that allowed their mundane army of mariners to throw back would-be conquerers time and again. These learned men and women defended the freedom of their tiny nation with their unique command over spell-weaving faeries, utilizing the creatures' magicks to heal the wounded and bolster the strength of their allies.”
- —Game Description
Scholars are healers with fairies as their pets. Scholar is evolved from the class Arcanist, as is Summoner. Scholars have all the abilities and traits of Arcanists. They can also use all the cross-class abilities of thaumaturge and conjurer. The most important stat for the scholar is mind, which increases healing magic potency. The level of your Scholar is equivalent to that of your Arcanist. Scholars use books as weapons, and do not equip anything in their off-hand.
After completing the 30th level arcanist quest and fulfilling the aforementioned level requirements, speak with Mutie, the arcanist Guild Receptionist. You will receive the quest, "Forgotten but Not Gone", which will grant a scholar soul crystal upon completion. Additional scholar quests are available every 5 levels from Alka Zolka inside the marauder's guild in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks.
The scholar job is equipped through the armory chest soul crystals tab in the bottom right-hand corner. It may be removed by unequipping the soul crystal in the bottom right-hand corner of the character window.
Bonus attribute points previously spent in the arcanist class are not reset when the scholar job is equipped.
