Introduction

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.

Scholar (SCH) is a job unlockable at level 30 as an upgrade from the arcanist class and is one of four Healer jobs. It is considered a "barrier" healer, along with sage, specializing in reducing incoming damage using shields and mitigation abilities.

General information

Guild

The Scholar's unlock quest is accessed through Murie in the Arcanists' Guild, located in Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (x4.5, y11.3). Arcanists must specialize into scholar (or summoner) once they reach level 30, and complete the quests Main Scenario QuestSylph-management and Feature QuestSinking Doesmaga.

Note: It's required to be an Arcanist frame icon.png Arcanist to receive the follow-up quest and unlock scholar, this means Soul of the summoner icon1.png  Soul of the Summoner must be unequipped.
Note 2: Being the only example of a split-class, Scholar frame icon.png Scholar and Summoner frame icon.png Summoner share a level since they are both based on Arcanist frame icon.png Arcanist.

The job trainer is Alka Zolka, who is normally located in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (11.1,6.2).

Equipment

The scholar is a disciple of magic and wears armor and accessories "of Healing." They use books as weapons. While some of their lower-level weapons are shared with Summoner, all of their weapons are exclusive to them past Lv. 50.

Lore

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 conquerors time and again.

History

The Fifth Astral Era was an age defined by remarkable advances in the arcane arts. In such an age, the nation of Nym, with its scant population of sorcerous adepts, found itself at a distinct disadvantage when pitted against the ruthless black mages of Mhach or the relentless white mages of Amdapor.

Thus, the Nymian military relegated its few precious sorcerers to a specialized support role within its standing army. Rather than serve as simple healers, however, these men and women were expected to take command of the battlefield, and weave spells that maximized the mariners’ effectiveness in combat.

In answer to the demands of their new position, Nymian mages learned to bind and control faeries that they might entrust the otherworldly creatures with a share of the restorative duties. This allowed these students of war to focus more fully upon strategy and tactics, a practice which earned them the title of “scholar.” But even the most brilliant tacticians could not outmaneuver the tragedy that was to come. As befell many wonders of the era, both the military wisdom of Nym and the disciples of its teaching were lost to the colossal floods of the Sixth Umbral Calamity.

Equipment

Scholar Attire

Raiment of the phrontist. The formal garb of the scholars of Nym betrays their military nature, and indeed, this shade of direwort dye is still called “brigade brown.” The Nymians believed in the unity of mind, magic, and martial ways and produced extraordinary thinkers such as Surito Carito, whose vest is the centerpiece of this attire.

The Omnilex

A repository of all military tactics known to man, compiled in that canny city called Nym. Copies of the Omnilex were once merely uncommon, but became almost impossible to acquire after the majority were irrevocably ruined by the waters of the great flood.

Savant's Attire

Recovered from the Floating City of Nym by an intrepid adventurer, this garb was identified as being of Nymian design, believed to have been invented in the latter part of the Fifth Astral Era. An experimental uniform issued exclusively to the scholar elite, the crystal tubes attached to the forearms could be infused with the wearer’s own aether. This allowed the scholar to later call upon ready reservoirs of mana to amplify the potency of her spells, although manipulation of energies stored in such a fashion is thought to have required a degree of control, possessed only by the most accomplished savants.

The Elements

Recovered from the Floating City of Nym by a fisherman to replace his damaged boat with a far larger vessel. Ambushed by Sahagin whilst casting his nets off the coast of western La Noscea, a fisherman stumbled across an ancient trove of stone receptacles after seeking refuge in a sheltered inlet cave. Hoping to claim some lost treasure that might pay for his battered boat, the fisherman was satisfied to discover a curious tome. A subsequent visit to a collector of antiquities revealed that the book was in fact an artifact of Nym—a grimoire containing the nascent magicks and techniques of the military scholar. The tome was placed on auction, and quickly snapped up by Rowena’s House of Splendors. The price fetched by the precious relic allowed the fisherman to replace his vessel.

Tricks of the Trade

  • Angel Feathers: The faerie spread her angelic wings, and a shimmering light exploded over the battlefield. As it washed over me, I felt my pain subside, and where I had thought myself fatally broken, I was whole again.

Anonymous adventurer describing the healing power of a scholar’s faerie companion

  • Adloquium: The scholar’s standard-issue healing spell. As well as closing wounds, Adloquium was designed to grant a secondary effect: a temporary arcane shield that helped protect frontline marines from further injury.
  • Leeches: This spell cleanses the recipient of deleterious effects. According to the histories of Nym, it was devised to counter the insidious, debilitating magicks favored by the black mages of Mhach.
  • Deployment Tactics: This technique developed as a logical extension of military scholar philosophy. The mage eliminates the need for lengthy incantations by using a previously cast spell as an axis, along which the existing boon can be extended to nearby allies.

Alka Zolka

Born to parents employed by the Mealvaan’s Gate customs house, Alka Zolka grew into a youth with a refined appreciation for reading. Surrounded by the unlettered children of fishermen and sailors, however, his love for books was often mocked as the pointless pastime of a weakling landlubber. Fueled by indignation and determined to prove that strategy trumps brute force, Alka presented himself as an aspirant to the Marauders’ Guild upon his sixteenth nameday. Though his peers within the guild held his intellectual pursuits in equally low regard, he weathered their jeering insults with unyielding stoicism. Alka had learned of the military tactics of Nym from an ancient tablet, and knew that if he could but recreate their wisdom, he would wield a weapon greater than any reaver’s axe.

Surito Carito

  • Race (Clan): Lalafell (Plainsfolk)
  • Gender: Male Age: 1605
  • Epithet: Surito Carito the Strategist

A scholar of the Nymian Royal Marines, Surito Carito devoted himself to concocting a cure for an eldritch plague that gradually transformed the afflicted into hideous, stunted monsters. The blight had found its way into Nym on the decks of a trading vessel near the end of the Fifth Astral Era, and Surito himself eventually succumbed to the contagion before his budding treatment could be perfected. But his misfortune, and that of the other victims, was not to end there. The people were so terrified of the disease that they began calling its sufferers “tonberries,” equating their existence with the fearful creatures of myth, and the entire temple into which the malformed Nymians had been herded was sunk into the nearby lake. Submerged under water and bound behind powerful warding magicks, Surito would slumber for more than fifteen centuries before the arcane seals upon the temple were sundered by the advent of the Seventh Umbral Calamity.

Faeries

With soul crystals providing an anchor for their existence, these otherworldly servants are made manifest through the accumulated aether of past Nymian mages. Faeries are known to adopt at least two different forms: Eos, whose domain is sunlight and restoration; and Selene, whose domain is moonlight and invigoration.

Lily

Lily is the name of Surito Carito’s faerie, an actherial entity summoned into the present day when an adventurer inadvertently came into possession of Surito’s lost Soul of the Scholar. Though Lily is incapable of speech, occasional acts taken independent of her master’s commands evince the existence of a distinct personality and will. [1]

Scholar’s Panoply

Orator’s Mortarboard

Written records indicate that the scholar’s mortarboard was once such a powerful symbol that the mere sight of one on the front lines could give heart to an entire battalion of Royal Marines.

Orator's Coat

This robe meets all of the needs common to Disciples of Magic, but the belt from which to hang scrolls and writing implements is specially made for scholars.

Orator's Shoes

The orator’s shoes were made to last through many campaigns. Scholars would typically pair them with tightly fastened gaiters to protect their shins in combat and ensure adequate blood circulation during more academic endeavors.

Form & Function

Because Nymian scholars were part of the Royal Marines, often operating in tandem with marauders, their gear was designed with battle tactics in mind. The scholar’s above-ankle hemline and comfortable shoes allow him to strategically reposition himself on the battlefield at will.

Also of note is the mortarboard, by far the most recognizable scholarly accoutrement. It was originally worn upon graduation from an educational institution as a symbol of academic achievement, but later came to be known as the mark of one who has devoted himself to the scholar’s art. It is said that Nymian scholars took such pride in their caps that those who were afflicted with the Green Death continued to don their mortarboards long after their bodies became twisted and unrecognizable. As a point of interest, nearly as common amongst scholars were correctional lenses—apparently, their profession required such intense study that many developed vision problems from spending so much time poring over tomes.
