Black mage job command. Enables the use of attack magicks in battle.

Black Magick (黒魔法, Kuro Mahō?), also known as Black Magic in the PlayStation version, is elementally-aligned offensive magick in Final Fantasy Tactics and a skillset of the Black Mage. In the PlayStation version Black Mage has a chance of doing a chant when casting a spell, but in the War of the Lions remake these were removed.

After being learned in the Black Magick skillset, the spells can also be used by Arithmetician's Maths skills.

MechanicsEdit

The amount of damage inflicted by Black Magicks is as follows:

\text{Magick Attack} \times \text{PWR} \times (\text{Faith}/100) \times (\text{Target Faith}/100)

The chance of inflicting a status is as follows:

(\text{Magick Attack} + \text{PWR}) \times (\text{Faith}/100) \times (\text{Target Faith}/100)

Firaja, Blizzaja, and Thundaja have a 30% chance of randomly being learned in battle by a Black Mage who hasn't learned the spell yet and is damaged but not KO'd by the spell, or absorbed and heals at least 1 HP. Nullifying the damage does not count.

EtymologyEdit

Black magic has traditionally referred to the use of supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes. With respect to the philosophy of left-hand path and right-hand path, black magic is the malicious counterpart of benevolent white magic.

Magick is an Early Modern English spelling for magic. Magick, in the context of Aleister Crowley's Thelema, is a term used to differentiate the occult from stage magic and is defined as "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will", including both "mundane" acts of will as well as ritual magic.
