Aura (オーラ, Ōra?) is both a spell and an ability that provides various beneficial effects unique to each game it appears in.
|Effect||Allows the target to learn Aura when used outside of battle. Casts Aura VIII when used in battle.|
|Find In||Fynn Castle, Raqia|
Aura adds the following effects per success:
- 1: Extra damage vs. Magic Beasts
- 2: Extra damage vs. Aquatic
- 3: Extra damage vs. Earth
- 4: Extra damage vs. Giants
- 5: Extra damage vs. Spellcasters
- 6: Extra damage vs. Dragon
- 7: Extra damage vs. Werebeasts
Aura grants the Aura status, which increases the chance of the afflicted character getting a Limit Break and allows them to get Limit Breaks even outside of being in HP Critical health. Being under the effects of Aura boosts the character's Crisis Level, enhancing their Limit Breaks as well. Its effect lasts 6.6 seconds. The afflicted character is shrouded in yellow hues.
Used as junctioning magic, Aura will highly increase the Luck stat and can be junctioned to status defense to make a character immune to Curse. Aura is a very rare magic: the only enemy to carry Aura for Drawing is Seifer. Otherwise, Aura must be refined from items, or drawn from Draw Points, such as on the Island Closest to Heaven and Island Closest to Hell. Aura also cures the negative status Curse.
Aura can also be used on or by opponents, which cause their strength to temporarily increase and may allow them to use new abilities. For example, Aura allows the aerial monster Thrustaevis to use its Wind Blast attack, the mechanical monster GIM52A to use the Blue Magic Ray-Bomb and allows Raijin to use Raijin Special.
|Draw from||Level 30-100: Seifer*|
|Draw Points||Trabia Garden (hidden, never refills), Galbadia Garden (during Garden War, hidden), Ultimecia Castle Wine Cellar (hidden), Island Closest to Heaven, Island Closest to Hell|
|Refine||Supt Mag-RF: 1 Aura Stone refines into 1 Aura, 1 Fury Fragment refines into 5 Auras|
|No effect||No effect||No effect||Curse: +2.00%|
Here, Aura is a white magic and enhancing magic aligned with the light element exclusive to Scholars of level 5 and higher under the effect of Tabula Rasa. The spell's official English translation is Embrava, to match with the theme of giving Scholar's exclusive spells Latin names. The spell takes 20% of one's maximum MP to cast, targets a single player, and lasts for 5 minutes, although Strategems are commonly used to reduce this cost, extend this duration, and target an entire party at a time.
While the precise magnitude of the effect is dependent on the Scholar's Enhancing Magic skill, at the present time the effect gives a substantial Haste, Regen, and Regain effects. Because this effect is its own separate status, it stacks with the Haste and Regen spells.
