Or does Conjurer sound a lot more like Geomancer than any of the mages in FFXI? SE's site says they concentrate aether from the area directly around them, channeling it into spells. Sounds to me like it'll be a job greatly affected by terrain.

I think as long we don't have any info about what spells and abilities each job has we can't say they look like this or that.
SE probably will surprise us with a lot of new ideas on how skills could work and think only 10% of the skills currently in ffxi will return the exact same way in ffxiv if not less.

There is a tiny bit of Geomancer flavor in there, but I DON'T think it will be to the extent were you will be limited to what spells you can cast based upon the land type you are in. (Ex. If you're in a swamp you can only cast Water, and Quake) Just that maybe certain spells will be strengthened or weekend depending on the area you're in. Kind of like FFXI's weather system now that I think about it.
Yes I'm a bit of a jerk, but a rational jerk.

They have auras or something don't they? Or was that the other one. Anyway, they don't really sound much like a geomancer to me. They have the regular black and white mage spells like cure and fire, not terrain magic.

They could be compared to Sage, or at least that was my first thought.
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

Heck yea Geomancer, always wished they'd make that class for XI. There was def. room for it, like you would have to think though, an know the layouts of land. I honestly do not know what to make of it. We will see eventually though, I'm not huge on mage classes, so Im set with Lancer cus I wub DRG, and ...maybe Pugilist since I like THF, and MNKS str8. :D
