"Tricksters spin a web of deception, twisting the flow of battle to their advantage."
The Trickster is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3, usable by the Bangaa only. They fight using cards as weapons, allowing them to attack from a long range, and their skills primarily revolve around inflicting statuses. Unusual for Bangaas, the Trickster Job features an excellent Speed and Magic growth, but with the downfall of very low MP. A very popular secondary A-Ability is the Gladiator's Sparring moveset, which grants elemental damage and the Bangaa's Ultima attack. Since Ultima's damage is based on the Magic stat, Tricksters can do higher damage than most of the Bangaa's other classes, and with a better range and Half MP as support, the Trickster can deal massive damage at long range every two turns. One should keep in mind that this class has a disadvantage against units that are immune to debuffs (via Cashucha, Barrette, Ribbon, or the Impervious Passive ability). The Trickster is also the only Job that is able to wield cards.
