Why did they stop using the traditional Black Mages?

The ones with the blue cloaks, shadowy faces, and wizard hats?

Because they didn't want to use the same black mage for 25 years.

i honestly dont know myself. then again this series doesnt need black mages. not the way its heading. what would be the use of a black mage when pratically everyone can cast black magic? could be fun enemies though.
im not changing this sig until i see a cutscene with lightning on the toilet. hell it doesnt have to be a long one

Because there isn't a job system. o.o The black mages in FF 9 were a race.

Because they wouldn't look right in every setting.

I miss the job system... Back then, Final Fantasy made sense. (Well, to me at least)

Because what some consider "traditional" others see as "old-fashioned" or "outdated".
