Black Magicks is a skillset in Final Fantasy XII. Only certain jobs can wield Black Magick. The Black Mage learns all of the Black Magicks, while the Uhlan and Red Battlemage can learn a few. Certain spells can be obtained from treasures.

In the Zodiac versions, certain abilities were re-classified, and some abilities that belonged to the Green Magicks skillset in the original version, were re-classified as Black Magicks spells.

MechanicsEdit

Damage calculation:

DMG = [Power \times RANDOM(1\sim 1.125) - Magick Resist] \times [2 + Magick Power \times (Lv+Magick Power)/256)][1]

The damage is boosted if the caster is affected by Faith (increased by 130% of original damage), wears equipment with elemental affinity, the current weather or terrain boosts the effectiveness of the used element, what augments have been purchased on the License Board, and whether the enemy is weak against the used element.

MP cost is defined as default MP cost. Channeling Augments lower MP cost of any spell.

Compared to the original release, Black Magick has been added with status effect spells from the Green Magicks category. Also, Ardor is now an Arcane Magick spell. Fran, regardless of her job, has access to Fire and Thunder.

Other jobs have limited access:

The success rate of negative status spells are unaffected by the target's magick evasion.

Success Rate = Base Rate + (MAG of user - VIT of target) \%[1]

If the target has Shell, the success rate is halved.

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.
