This will be the first part of a series of blogs I'm going to make, reviewing some of the jobs in FF Tactics: WoTL, that either really call my attention, or that really pisses me off. Why? Because I'm bored and have nothing better to do (but study) and FF Tactics is currently my favorite game for the PSP, and it rocks.
The First Job I will be discussing is Onion Knight.
Level 6 Squire
Level 6 Chemist
Can equip all weapons.
One of the new job classes, the Onion Knight has very basic stats, and no real abilities. However, it has hidden potential, in that it has increased power dependent on the amount of other job classes the unit has mastered, much like Freelancers in other games like Final Fantasy V. To get one level, the character must master two jobs, so to get the maximun Onion Knight Level the character must master 16 jobs.
I found out about the Onion Knight while looking at the FF Tactics job tree, trying to see all the jobs available for the game. I didn't read it's description because, i was just to darn lazy. But it called my attention... such a peculiar name as Onion Knight... and it was at the very top of the job tree. I decided that I wanted to unlock that job really badly, just to see why was that job on the top of the job tree.
After spending hours leveling up one of my characters to become a level 6 Squire and a level 6 chemist, just to get Onion Knight, thinking it would be the greatest job evah, besides Dark Knight.
Oh how wrong I was.
The job has no special abilities what so ever, besides being able to equip any sort of weapon. You can't assign an Onion Knight any other abilities like Items or Poach or Move +1. It's basically just attacking and hoping that you don't miss. You don't level up unless you master all the other jobs.
My question: Why would you ever want to have such a fail job? Even if it gets better with every job you master?
I must master 'em all!
End of Pokemon Reference.
That's the only point I see in actually unlocking Onion knight. So, my advice is don't bother using it because, besides of the suckiness of its attacks, it is mastered in lvl. 1, but unlock it for you to say: "Hey, I unlocked all the secret jobs in FF tactics!" Because trust me, there isn't any other reason.
Anyway, on a slightly unrelated note, I began to wonder again why the called them "Onion" Knight. I kept thinking about it and after a few minutes of analyzing it after I unlocked the job, I came to this conclusion.
Onions: They stink, they make you screw your face in a wierd way when you sniff them, and they make your eyes watery.
Bottom line: Onion Knight=Stinky Knight, Lame Knight, Good-For-nothing Knight.
Yep, I know, lame, but when you think about it, it's true.
Tell me what you think anyways. Thanks!
