Scholars are adept at reading books which goes a long with with wielding magic (at least in FFXI). As a result they are able to utilize the two main schools of magic; black and white. Each Scholar could choose to focus on one magic school, thereby strengthening the chosen school and weakening the other. This makes a scholar a very versatile job and I feel is much needed considering the current jobs seem to allow only one role. With the release just around the corner it seems FFXIV will still have some welcoming surprises for us.
