The lists for Final Fantasy Tactics I've found online are wrong or, at least, appear to be. I don't know if they changed the way some of the later classes are unlocked since the PSP version, but I've been trying to unlock Samurai and both prerequisite classes and their level haven't worked (I have both Knight and Monk at level 8).

Could anyone let me know how to unlock the Samurai class or even better, give me a list of all classes and prerequisite levels to unlock them that actually works on the iOS version?

  • Wow, FFT, blast from the past. Samurai also requires Dragoon to be Level 2. I would check out (gamefaqs.com/iphone/…) I have a feeling this is correct, but I can't personally confirm it, so I'm leaving this as a comment instead of answer. Commented Jan 21, 2012 at 13:54
  • Ah yes, it all makes sense now. You need knight level 4, monk level 6 and dragoon level 2. Thanks. I've checked the diagram and it all makes sense. Commented Jan 21, 2012 at 20:20
  • In that case I'm gonna post it as an answer. Feel free to ignore it if someone posts something better :) Commented Jan 22, 2012 at 8:11
  • You also need samurai level 8 to unlock the dark knight job

This seems to be pretty accurate: FFT War of the Lions class level requirements chart

For Samurai specifically, it seems you need Dragoon to be Level 2 as well.
