Assessment

The Nekomancer is a hybrid class with two distinct playstyles depending on whether or not Ability Cat's Meow.png Cat's Meow
Sharp boost to allies' stats (Uses 3 Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
every turn / Hit to caster's stats for 3 turns when Cat's Meow ends on recast or when Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
is 0)
is active. When the skill is active, the class becomes a team buffer, offering a wide set of virtually undispellable stats to the entire party. When the skill is inactive, the class becomes a selfish attacker, with the ability to hit all enemies with bonus damage and dishes out strong charge attacks. Regardless of the playstyle, however, the Nekomancer is a fairly micro-intensive unit as it relies on proper management of the charge bar and its unique status, the Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
.

More mundanely, the Nekomancer can also be seen as direct upgrade of the Mystic, and can be used similar to the class for farming content on auto, such as Angel Halo.

As the Nekomancer is only proficient to staff weapons, it has a more limited amount of weapon options compared to other staff-class counterparts, the Warlock and the Sage. Still, it does have access to a few good weapons. The best option is its class weapon, the Lunatic Broom square.jpg Lunatic Broom, which is a superb main hand due to making Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
management more efficient. The non-upgraded version, the Kapilavastu square.jpg Kapilavastu is also a decent option, especially when using Ability MysticFate.png Fate Foreseen
Convert entire charge bar to Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
.
as the method of regaining Status MP 1.pngMPMagic power is amplified
. Other examples include Weapon s 1040414700.jpg Hollowsky Staff, Weapon s 1040410800.jpg Ultima Staff, Obscuritas square.jpg Obscuritas and True Glacial Dream Staff square.jpg True Glacial Dream Staff.
