FFX Weapon - Nirvana

The Nirvana as it appears in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2.

Cast aside the doubt in your mind, pick up this staff, and watch the light of clarity shine down upon your path.

Nirvana (ニルヴァナ or ニルヴァーナ, Niruvana?), also known as Shambhala, is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually the most powerful staff and is mostly used by Summoners or White Mages.


Final Fantasy IVEdit


Staff with the power of reflection.

Nirvana is a staff exclusive to the Advance and Complete Collection versions, and can only be equipped by Porom. It provides +80 Attack, 40 Accuracy, +15 to Stamina and Spirit, and casts Reflect when used as an item. It is found in the Lunar Ruins.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY Nirvana is a dummied out weapon that can only be accessed via hacking, and would have provided 80 Attack as well as several stat boosts. It would have cast Reflect when used as an item, and would have been used by several characters.

Final Fantasy XEdit

X The Nirvana is Yuna's Celestial Weapon, and can be obtained at the Monster Arena in the Calm Lands. It requires the Moon Crest and Sigil to attain its maximum power. At maximum power, its abilities are Break Damage Limit, Triple Overdrive, Double AP, and One MP Cost. It allows the aeon Valefor to break the 9,999 damage limit once activated with the Moon Crest. Like all Celestial Weapons, Nirvana ignores target's Defense. It deals more damage the closer Yuna is to her max MP.

The damage formula is:

(10 + [100 * User's current MP ÷ User's Max MP]) ÷ 110

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

X-2 Yuna wields the Nirvana when she is in her Black Mage dressphere.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

XI The Nirvana is the Summoner's Mythic Weapon. It reduces Avatar perpetuation cost by four (exceeding even Bahamut's Staff), increases Magical Attack power of avatars by a significant amount, and features the unique Garland of Bliss weapon skill. Because of these factors, and because the comparable Relic Weapon upgrade for Summoners, the Claustrum, is arguably the worst, Nirvana is considered one of the few actually sensible Mythic Weapon upgrades.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant WingsEdit


Baton used in somber, contemplative dances.
—In-game description

The Nirvana is one of Penelo's strongest staves crafted in the Sky Saloon with a Rare Gemstone, Red Gemstone, and Luxuriant Hide. It provides a base of +40 Attack, +90 Magick, and +12 Speed. It uses a generic staff sprite during battle.

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit


This upgraded weapon maintains the properties of the original, while boosting overall power and ATB capacity.

The Nirvana is a final tier rod weapon for Vanille, upgraded from a maxed second tier weapon using a Trapezohedron. While their passive and synthesized abilities vary, all Nirvanas add a ATB gauge segment.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit


After long years spent spurring worldly desires, a Near Eastern hierarch rose to a higher state of being. And as he did, life itself quickened within his trusty staff, the very twin of which you now hold!

The Nirvana is one of the legendary Zodiac Weapons wielded by the Zodiac Braves, wielded by White Mages. The weapon is the final form of the White Mage's Relic Weapon, the Thyrus. The weapon provides 54 vitality, 10 accuracy, 51 mind, and raises the custom stat bonuses the player put into their Novus weapon by 2 points.

In addition, the Nirvana is originally mentioned as an important artifact related to the White Mage quest chain.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit


A staff that can only be mastered by the enlightened.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

TA2 The Nirvana reappears as the ultimate staff. It adds 34 to the Attack stat and 10 to the Resistance stat, as well as being Holy-elemental. Nirvana can still teach Arise to White Mages, Holy to Bishops, and Phoenix to Summoners.
