Rod containing the power of Holy.
Holy Rod (ホーリーロッド, Hōrī Roddo?), also known as Pearl Rod, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is often a high-ranked staff or rod, and is naturally Holy-elemental and can sometimes cast the spell Holy, either by using it as an item or by attacking with it. It is usually restricted to mage classes.
The Holy Rod (originally called Pearl Rod) is a high-ranked rod used by Gogo, Relm, and Strago. It is Holy-elemental and casts Holy when used as an item and has a random chance of casting the spell when attacking with it. It has an attack power of 124. One can be found in Tzen and it can also be purchased in Thamasa in World of Ruin for 12,000 gil.
The Holy Rod is the strongest rod in terms of Attack Power and second strongest in terms of Magic Power. Its license requires 35 LP to activate. The Holy Rod is a unique weapon as it is the only weapon to have both an elemental affinity to and effect of the Holy element, making all normal physical attacks dealt by the rod 50% stronger than its Attack power would suggest. Holy Rod provides +53 Attack, +2 Magic, and +30 MP. Rods are among the slower weapons with 2.72s charge and 1.2s action time. It can be found as a treasure in the Pharos and Cerobi Steppe.
In the International Zodiac Job System version, the Holy Rod retains its Holy elemental affinity and effect, and now provides +63 Attack and +4 Magic but has no additional MP bonus. It can only be used by the White Mage. It can be found in The Great Crystal.
The Magician's Wand was named the Holy Staff in pre-release builds.
The Holy Rod is a level 88 rod that grants +272 HP, +57 Attack, and +1 Defense. It also increases Magic Damage by 20%. It can be traded for at the shop for 27,220 gil, an Ice Rod, Holystone x4, and a Purple Gem.
Holy Rod returns as a level 60 rod that provides +287 HP, -70 Bravery, +58 Attack, +1 Defense, and +5% Magic damage. It can be obtained by trading 132,880 gil, Ice Rod, Carbuncle's Gem, and Girl's Dream x5.
