The Red Mage is capble of unleashing status ailments based on the elemental magic they have used. To further expand this, we highly suggest equipping the Black Mage as a Sub-Job to the Red Mage to expand the amount of status ailments it can inflicts to enemies!
Also applies to healing abilities against undead enemies.
The Red Mage's 2nd Speciality Chain Spell causes the caster to cast the spell a 2nd time for free. This is one of the biggest powerspikes of mage classes and it is highly suggested to max the Red Mage class immediately for this ability.

Allows your magics to critically strike. An ability that flats out buffs the damage output of elemental spells. Even if you don't wish to play the Red Mage, we highly suggest at least getting this support ability.
Allows your character to get BP when attacked. This ability goes extremely well with tank classes like the Vanguard who wants the enemy attention to themselves!
|Nuisance||All attack spells also have a chance of inflicting status ailments. The ailment inflicted depends on the spell element.|
|Chainspell||All spells cast are performed twice at no extra MP cost.|
Speciality 2 Can only be learned after leveling the Red Mage to Level 12.

Below are the weapons proficiencies for the Red Mage Job. Refer to this section to know which weapons are best suited for the Red Mage Job.
Roddy is the bearer of the Red Mage Asterisk. He is capable of inflicting damage and status ailments at the same time so be wary of these ailments and equip your party accordingly!
TheOracle's 3 elemental spell goes pretty well with the Red Mage's nuisance speciality which inflicts extra status ailments unto foes. This greatly expands the Oracle's abilities that can easily destroy normal enemies and bosses alike!
While this combo will need a lot of support from your equipment builds and team composition, it is still an extremely strong job combo that can wipe out enemies in a single (or double) spell cast.

If you use Healing magic, Nuisance grants the Red Mage a chance to inflict Charm on the target. Found that out while using Heal to deal damage to an undead enemy.
Oracle might be a better sub-job than black mage, since elemental supplement works on magic attacks (and gives a chance for the corresponding elements).
