FFXIV Dawntrail Pictomancer job class requirements, explained

Before you can start painting images to use against your enemies in combat, there are some requirements you must first meet. To unlock Pictomancer, you must meet the following prerequisites:

  • Own the Dawntrail expansion
  • Have a level 80 Disciple of War or Magic (class doesn’t matter)

Level 80 is quite high, meaning you will want to more than likely be done with Shadowbringers or at least close to in order to be able to unlock this new job. This is also because when you unlock Pictomancer, it will already be a whopping level 80 with all of the previous skills ready to go.

Where do I unlock Pictomancer in FFXIV Dawntrail?

Got all those requirements met? Great, now it is time to unlock a new magical DPS job. Here is the location where you can unlock Pictomancer in FFXIV Dawntrail:

  • Old Gridania: X: 8.0, Y: 10.3

You want to head this hub area, equip your level 80 or higher job, and speak with the Cheerless Hearer here to start “The Joy of Pictomancy.” Complete this easy intro quest to unlock Pictomancer. It will also come with great level 80 starter gear to help you out. If you happen to struggle learning this job, I recommend finding a training dummy.

Read through all of your actions carefully and test them out on a dummy. This will let you experiment and see which combos work the best.

Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail is available right now for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
