Knight job command. Enables the use of "Rend" skills that destroy equipment or reduce attributes.
—Description

Arts of War is the action ability for the Knight in Final Fantasy Tactics.

The Dual Wield ability (acquired using the Ninja job) allows the player to take two chances at "rending" equipment and statistics. For example, players can rend an enemy's speed twice in one turn.

In the PlayStation version, the first four abilities are useless against enemies that cannot equip armor or weapons (i.e. "monsters").
