Overview[edit | edit source]
- Favored Weapon: Fans.
- Favored Armor: Robes.
The Siren is an advanced, female-only playable class. This class is one of the best magic users in the game, second best generic magic attacker (behind the Lich), and the only generic capable of using Summons. Unlike previous games, there's no Alignment restriction, only stat and emblem requirements.
Sirens are one of the best female-only classes available, and one of the best classes for female mages, the other being the Priest. Their MP and INT growths guarantee high damage potential even with low-power Area-Effect spells, let alone Summons. The one downside to Sirens is their low HP and terrible Move, which means that they will typically need the help of support and melee units to cover for them.
Despite fans being their favored weapon, Sirens are better off equipping staves and wands to increase their INT and spell power. Not only that, but fans already have low power and function primarily as melee weapons, while Sirens are extremely vulnerable in melee.
Sirens are a great addition to any team lacking in magic power, and one of the best candidates for Lich transmigration. There are some special classes, like the Witch♥ and Shaman, that could eclipse the Siren's raw power, but these classes also have unique skills that may relegate them to other roles besides magic attackers.
The Siren was renamed Witch in the English localization, and merged with the Warlock class. See page for details.
