Before I start, I need to admit something; I've never actually played Final Fantasy XII. It's literally the only game in the main series that I've not played, so hopefully I'll get some advice from this thread.
Right, now to start the thread; So I preordered the game months and months ago, I've had it since day one, not played it yet, and won't be playing it until after I finish The Witcher 3 anyway, but I'm aware of the change in the job system, whereas before it seemed you could learn everything from every job (Is this correct?), yet now you're limited to just two jobs per character and they're permanent too.
Before I start my playthrough, I've been looking up good job combinations for each character, and honestly some of them just seem a little bizzare to me... as I've said, I've not played the game, so I don't know who is supposed to do what, but for example, people are saying Balthier makes a great white mage, yet in just about every picture I've seen of him over the years, he's holding a gun, so surely he'd make a better machinist? And then there's Fran who always seems to be holding a bow, people suggest making her a tank or a red mage rather than an archer... this confuses me beyond belief!
With that said, to anyone here who has played/is playing The Zodiac Age, or has played enough of the original game to know which classes would work well together...
What are your job combinations for your character?
Are there any right or wrong combinations, or is it possible to fuck up by picking the wrong jobs for certain characters?
What would you suggest as combinations for someone who would be playing the game for the first time?
