Last updated Yesterday at 00:00 by Laille 1 comment

Pictomancer is a magical ranged DPS job in Final Fantasy XIV that is capable of bringing art to life through the use of aether and their magical brush. Pictomancer can be unlocked in Gridania after reaching level 80 and owning the Dawntrail expansion.


Dawntrail's New Caster, Pictomancer

Announced at the Tokyo Fanfest in January of 2024, Pictomancer will be the newest Caster Job for Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail, the next expansion launching in Summer of 2024. Pictomancy is an art popularized by the late Archon Relm, and has been confirmed to use a brush as their main weapon, enabling them to bring art to life in order to deal damage and buff their allies.

Pictomancer Concept Art Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail

Pictomancer will be a Caster DPS Job, the first full-fledged Caster DPS added since Red Mage was added in Final Fantasy 14: Stormblood. Like the other Casters, the main stat that Pictomancer will use on gear will be Intelligence. Since Pictomancer does not require a base class to play like the classes launched in A Realm Reborn, players will only need to own Dawntrail and have another combat Job leveled to level 80 or higher to unlock. Square Enix has confirmed Pictomancer will be unlocked in Gridania, so those looking to get an early jump on unlocking and leveling Pictomancer when the Expansion launches in Summer 2024 can plan ahead accordingly without needing to worry about unlocking the zone later into the game.
