A good way to utilise your class bonus is to be a DD (direct damage) caster. DDs will also become your main damage output. Blue DD gems offer a lower but consistent range of damage using equal amounts of energy and mana or a wider range of damage for mana only, whereas red magic offers a low minimum damage but very high maximum damage possibility using mana only.

Seeing as blue/red magic use mainly mana, some useful additions to your gem pouch would be mana restoration gems, earliest found in Fenelia, as well as balance gems found first in Castille. With careful management, you can have an almost never-ending supply of mana to attack with.

However the most important gem for DD casters is the Flare Up Aura, first found in Stronhad, which increases the maximum range of direct damage gems.
These will greatly improve your DD effectiveness, and should be placed in the first slot of your gem pouch so that any future DD gems that are drawn can be used immediately to the best of their ability.
