Thaumaturge
In the hands of a skilled practitioner, thaumaturgy can be a force of terrifying destruction. At the heart of this school of magic lies the ability to call forth and command the latent aether within oneself through deep introspection.
To then mold that aether into sorcery, the thaumaturge makes use of a scepter or staff, within which is housed a medium—a natural stone imbued with magical properties. Thus armed, the thaumaturge is capable of wreaking considerable havoc via ruinous spells and curses.

Thaumaturge
Thaumaturge Concept Art

Thaumaturge is a Disciple of Magic class that specializes in the destructive magic of Fire, Blizzard and Thunder. As the wielders of staves and scepters, Thaumaturge are especially powerful when dealing damage to multiple enemies at the same time. The Thaumaturge's Guild is in the desert city of Ul'dah. If you choose thaumaturge as your first class, you will start off in the city of Ul'dah. At level 30, the thaumaturge can acquire the job Black Mage if he or she also has the archer class at level 15.

Play Style

Armed with scepters and staves, thaumaturges can wreak havoc with their spells and curses. Thaumaturge is a ranged damage dealing class with powerful AoE spells and strong crowd control abilities. The most important stat for the thaumaturge is intelligence, which increases attack magic potency.

Mechanics

When thaumaturge casts a Fire spell, he acquires the Astral Fire buff. The buff increases the damage and MP cost of his fire spells and reduces damage and MP cost of his ice spells. His MP regen also stops. When thaumaturge casts a Blizzard spell, he acquires the Umbral Ice buff. The buff reduces the MP cost and damage of fire spells and increases his MP regen. If the thaumaturge casts an ice spell while he has the Astral Fire buff, the buff will be removed. If the thaumaturge casts a fire spell while he has an Umbral Ice buff on, the buff will be removed.

For tons of damage, players should spam Fire spells till his or her MP is low. Then use Transpose to swap Astral Fire for Umbral Ice for massive MP regen. When the player's MP is full, use Transpose again to swap Umbral Ice for Astral Fire to resume the flaming bombardment.

If you're a former player of World of Warcraft, think of the Balance talent spec for Druids. The mechanics are very similar.
