Bard is a Job from Final Fantasy Tactics. It is a male-exclusive Job, obtained by training a male unit in magical Jobs. By Bard song, the Bard boosts all allied units' stats, from anywhere on the field. The Bards have high magical stats, but almost no defensive capabilities. Bards, like their female
counterparts, Dancers, can be used to gain EXP and JP in a battle because their songs repeat based on how many turns the initial Charge Time was. It costs 3,850/7,900 JP to master this Job, depending on version of the game.
