Geodancer

The ancient geodances first discovered by Mog have been passed down through the generations and spread far and wide, mixing the forces of the earth with the graceful movements of the body to generate amazing magic.

The geodancer is an archetype of the dancer class, available only to moogle dancers.

The geodancer adds Survival (Wis) to her class skills. The geodancer loses Appraisal as a class skill.
