"One of the many brands of the machinist, the tinker wages battle with his clockwork creations."
Tinker is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3, only accessible to Moogles. This Job uses gadgets that have a 50% chance of either hitting every enemy or every ally, making them a very unreliable class; They can either be the player's best friend, or worst nightmare. Although they are risky to use, the Tinker's stat growths are superb, having high HP, Attack, and Defense, average Speed and Magic, but with perfect Resistance, only severely lacking in MP. Tinkers are best used only when the situation desperately calls for one, or at the start of a battle, when the game can be reset if the desired effect does not occur.
The TINKER crafts elaborate devices that wreak havoc on the battlefield.
Before the attack is issued, a box is opened, and the moogle face inside the box determines whether your allies or enemies are affected. An angelic moogle means that the ability will benefit the Tinker's team (i.e. positive statuses will affect its allies, while negative statuses will affect its enemies) while a purple, "evil" moogle means that the ability will benefit the Tinker's enemies.
