The Ultimate Cross-Class Skill List!

Revised on 5/30/14

Pro Tip: LEVEL ALL CLASSES TO LEVEL 8-12 EARLY ON. You get a ton of skills in the early levels.

NOTE: This does not include Trait effects, as Trait bonuses don't carry over to off classes.

Skill Unlocking
BRD = ARC 34, PUG 42, LCN 34
PLD = GLD 34, CNJ 34, MRD 26
DRG = LCN 34, MRD 26, PUG 42
WAR = MRD 26, GLD 34, PUG 42
MNK = PUG 42, LCN 34, MRD 34
WHM = CNJ 34, ACN 34, THM 26
BLM = THM 26, ARC 34, ACN 34
SMN = ACN 34, THM 26, ARC 34
SCH = ACN 34, CNJ 34, THM 26

"All Classes / All Melee / All Mages" does NOT include job limitations. See above list for those.

Physick is good cause can be used by BLM.

Eye of an Eye is usable by all classes apparently (the tooltip says so, at least)

QUESTION!: with cross class abbilities for Jobs IE: Monk, do you only get the basic abbillity, or if you have the upgraded version as trait, do you get that too?

Lamia (Primal)

This is pretty cool; one thing to note, the Blood for Blood skill on Lancer is gained at level 34. Just trying to help :D

Ruin isn't useless. It's acctully useful for an Arcanist because most of the elements don't acctully do anything to begin with aside from applied stat damage with effect.

As in, there is no wheel of elements.

this list isnt right, dont know what u updated but not a lot here is correct.

Ruin's useless as a cross-class skill; that is, it provides no significant benefit to any class other than ACN. It's a solid skill when not used cross-class.

Revoo, you're correct, edited.

My source was from the FF14 Database. Specific numbers may change with patches(ex- Mantra's potency lowering to 5%) but the effects should stay the same.

And by "ACN", I mean ACN/SCH/SMN, to clarify.

Kanzashi Sarashiki

Phoenix (Light)

Thanks a lot , quick question if i unlock one of the skills for one class will it automatically go to the other class im able to use it on ?

Morgan Grimes

Phoenix (Light)

So does this mean if i get conjurer to lvl2 i can use cure for every job i have at lvl2?

If you unlock a skill on one Class/Job, it's immediately unlocked on all Classes/Jobs that can use that skill, regardless of level. A level 10 LCN can use Stoneskin from a lvl 34 CNJ, and so forth. Please note that Job Crystals (at lvl 30) apply cross-class skill restrictions based on each Job. A DRG cannot use Stoneskin, but a SCH or PLD could. For a list of what Jobs can use what, see my list at the top. It also has the minimum levels of each associated Class to unlock all skills for that Job!

For those just starting out, 1.)you need to first level up a class to unlock a cross-class skill. It should tell you what skills are usable by what classes in the skill's description. Then 2.) on the class you want to use it on, check your cross-class skill tab on the Skills and Abilities menu and equip it! You unlock more cross-class skill slots as you level up.

Archer isn't... Melee... Melee means close quarters combat and archer is ranged. Come on dude.

Antarran Rouge

Midgardsormr (Aether)

Mechanics dictate that Archer/Bard is melee. Sure, we can call it ranged melee, but it's melee nonetheless.

Is this guide still relevant with the latest patches? I see that it was last edited 5/30/14. Thanks.

I don't see lvl 3 Aero (Conjurer) in my list of skills. All I have as a level 15 Conjurer that I can use as a cross class skill for my paladin is; Cure, Revive & Protect.

Girbaud Wagner

Famfrit (Primal)

Scar Ishvala, I believe the melee tag on the archer skills is saying that it's a skill suited for melee classes, since there is seldom a reason for a caster to be close enough to engage in any physical attacks.

Though, why skills like marauder's fracture are listed as all classea dn not melee only leads to more confusion.

Huge help! Thank you for posting this! :)
