FF4PSP Cid PortraitCid: Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Black Mage (Final Fantasy III) page!
Please expand this article into a full one. This can be done by making a 2D and 3D weapon/armor table like here. Equipment stats do not belong here since the weapons/armor should link to their respectable list of Final Fantasy III weapon/armor page.. This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page.
