    @Majed: Thanks for your pros on Ark! I have added them into the pros and cons section.

  4. Majed

  5. Ayumilove Post author

    @Yoshiiro: Thanks for sharing Ark cons! I’ll be adding it into the guide above.

  6. Yoshiiro

    one con to ark is that he has to be micro managed with his spell buff, those tiny diamonds things below his gauge to fully be effective, and also his first job doesnt have much mobility in skill terms as iirc, his first attacking skill locks him in place.

  7. jake

    @Aishi nope it’s not

  8. Aishi

    Is Ark that person that appear to be Agate’s teacher in this comic?
