FF4PSP Ability Salve

Salve in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (PSP).

Remove several status ailments.
—Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Salve (くすり, Kusuri?), also known as Balm, Heal, and Medicine, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is generally a support ability that either allows the user to distribute healing to the party or cures statuses.


Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV Salve is a command for Edward. This ability was removed on the SNES North American and Easy Type version of the game. In the 2D versions, it has a casting time of 4 and consumes a Potion to restore a small amount of HP to the party. This command will fail if the player use it with just one Potion left, but will still consume the Potion. If the player has multiple groups of Potions, it starts with the group highest up on their list. However, it will consume two Potions, one from the highest group and one from the second highest. So if they have two groups of one Potion each, it will not only fail, but consume both Potions.

In the 3D versions, it allows Edward to use any consumable healing item on each party member in a single turn. When equipped to a character that levels up after reaching level 71, Salve will grant +1 Speed. Other characters can learned this ability if they use a Salve augment, obtained at Troia Castle from Edward after defeating the Dark Elf. Edward must have been given at least one Augment before leaving the party.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY Salve is the exclusive command ability for Edward, which uses up a number of items equal to the number of targets still alive in the target party (if there are 5 party members alive, and the player uses a Potion, Edward will use 5 Potions, but if only two party members are alive, he will instead use 2) with a casting time of 1. Unlike the previous game where the healing from Salve is split among the party members, Salve now heals at full strength with no penalty.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

FFT Salve is an ability of the Squire class, learned for 150 JP and has a range and effect of 1. It cures an adjacent ally of Poison, Blind, and Silence.
