Official Lodestone Job Guide (Always up-to-date)

The pictomancer channels offensive elemental magic by creating a variety of artwork. In addition to hard-cast spells, they also have several instant cast actions, similar to other magical ranged DPS. They can also be able to buff nearby allies, similar to Red Mage or Summoner. They do not have access to a resurrection spell.

Canvases and Palette Gauge is Pictomancer's Job Gauge.



Pictomancer eschews the stave for a brush, painting their imaginings upon a canvas and bringing them to life through magic. By utilizing the Creature Canvas, the Weapon Canvas, and the Landscape Canvas, a variety of effects can be produced.
