One of the best additions to Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is the jobs system. Now each character can select a job, and certain characters are ideal for certain jobs. We'll break down which characters are best for each job.

While you can choose your job for any character, some characters are just better at certain jobs. Every character has certain stats that may or may not max out as they level up. Characters also have innate abilities that they retain no matter which job you select for them. Basically, some characters are better at some jobs.

Here, we'll break down the basic question -- which characters are best suited for each and every job.
