Introduction

Though the Fifth Astral Era is most famously associated with the War of the Magi, a wealth of lesser-known legends were forged in that bygone age. Among them is the tale of Archon Relm, an itinerant artist and mage who relinquished her traditional staff for a magicked brush. With it, she would render abstract images to life, establishing an entirely new school of magic in so doing. Masters of this arcane discipline follow in the Archon's footsteps, wielding vibrant hues of aether to invoke all manner of fantastical beasts, weapons, and landscapes from their mind's eye─for the source of a pictomancer's power lies not in their artistic skill, but the richness of their imagination, with which they strive to paint a brighter future.

With brush in hand, a pictomancer weaves the aether of their imagination into the fabric of reality, allowing them to manifest their myriad motifs into living muses. Yet every work of art takes time to perfect, and thus their palettes are ever prepared with a colorful arsenal of instant-cast abilities and spells.

Combos

Job mechanics

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 will also be able to buff nearby allies, similar to Red Mage or Summoner. They will not have access to a resurrection spell.

The pictomancer's basic spell combo (Aether Hue) consists of a sequence of three spells: fire, aero, and water, that are assigned to a single button. Upon completing a combo, they gain one usage of an instant-cast spell (Holy in White) and 25 rainbow job gauge. The pictomancer can use 50 gauge on Subtractive Hue, which allows them to use a stronger combo of three different spells: ice, earth, and thunder, that deal more damage but have longer cast times. Each available usage of their holy spell is also replaced with a use of an instant-cast Comet in Black spell.

The pictomancer's job gauge also contains three empty canvases, which can be painted on to create a creature, weapon, and landscape canvas. The painting actions are instant-cast out of combat but have a cast time in combat. The creature canvas requires four uses of the paint action to fully materialize. Each time the paint action is used, a different body part is added, unlocking an instant cast "rendering" attack spell. A moogle is created after two uses, and a madeen after four, which can be summoned by using a finisher spell to deal high damage. The weapon canvas will summon a hammer which can be used on a three-part ranged attack combo. The landscape canvas has a long cast time and unlocks a finisher that buffs party members and creates an area on the ground that grants several effects to the user, including the ability to use Star Prism, a very strong attack.

The pictomancer also has access to a movement action allowing to quickly dash forward while temporarily boosting their movement speed.
