During the Crystal War, these military tacticians often served as high-ranking officers in allied forces across Vana'diel. Extensive knowledge of ancient martial theory granted Scholars (SCH) the ability to wield dual schools of magic, between which they would alternate depending on the situation at hand. Available after completing the quest, A Little Knowledge.
Displays グリモア abilities available when using Light Arts or Dark Arts.
The abilities available within Stratagems correspond to the type of Arts the scholar currently has activated.
No abilities will be displayed if neither Light Arts nor Dark Arts has been selected.
Stratagems do not have a recast time.
However, the use of these abilities is restricted by the number of "charges" available, with each ability consuming one charge per use.
When using the "/recast" text command, it is necessary to nominate a specific Stratagem to which the scholar currently has access, such as "/recast Celerity". This command will display the amount of time remaining until a new charge is generated, as well as the current number of charges available.
The number of charges available depends on the level of the scholar.
When set as main job, a scholar has one charge available at level 10, two at level 30, three at level 50, and a maximum of 4 at level 70.
When set as support job, a scholar has a maximum of two charges available.
Each charge takes 4/n minute(s) to recharge, where n is the number of charges available. So:
4 minutes below 30
2 minutes from 30-49
1 minute, 20 seconds from 50-69
1 minute from 70+
When the Stratagems Addendum: White or Addendum: Black are active, the Scholar gains access to additional white or dark magic spells respectively.
Spells cast that are incompatible with an activated Strategem will have their normal effect. The activated Strategem(s) will not be used up until it wears off, or until the proper spell type is cast.
