Agrias

Holy Knight (ホーリーナイト, Hōrī Naito?) is a special job in Final Fantasy Tactics. It is Agrias Oaks's default job, and focuses on swords and techniques that cause heavy damage from afar. Holy Knights are the game's equivalent of the Paladin, but lack the defensive qualities usually associated with it, instead focusing on the offense. It costs 3,350 JP to master.

Delita has the Holy Knight job from Chapter 2 onwards, with the addition of Chant. Wiegraf is a White Knight (ホワイトナイト, Howaito Naito?) with the same abilities, excluding Divine Ruination.

The Holy Knight's Holy Sword contains powerful abilities that deal damage and inflict an ailment to the targets without the requisite of charging time or MP. Like all Swordplay abilities, the user must be equipped with a sword or a knight sword to use them.

Despite its name and the in-game help message, Holy Sword abilities are not associated with the holy element (nor lightning element for Hallowed Bolt). Instead, the elemental attribute depends on the user's equipped weapon, primarily the one on the right hand. The game's AI still mistakenly regards them, including Hallowed Bolt, as Holy-elemental, and will not use them if the target is immune against Holy.

TriviaEdit

  • The concept of Northswain's Strike's additional instant death effect refers to the Chinese deity of Northern Dipper associated with death whose role is similar to that of the Grim Reaper.
  • In the original Final Fantasy Tactics for the PS1, "Stasis Sword" is mistranslated as "Steady Sword" in the battle quote.
