The Black Magicks skillset in Final Fantasy XII differs in the original release compared to the Zodiac releases. All party members can to learn Black Magicks by buying the appropriate license and by the player buying the spell from a magick shop or traveling merchant. Additionally, many abilities were re-classified in the Zodiac releases.

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.

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.
