FFIX Steiner Swd Art

Use sword skill.
—Description

Swd Art (剣技, Kenwaza?, lit. Sword Art) is Adelbert Steiner's skillset from Final Fantasy IX. Many names of these skills derive from various job class abilities from Final Fantasy Tactics. Some of Steiner's Sword Arts also appear in Beatrix's Seiken command.

Iai Strike taught by the Rune Blade, can be missed altogether because it can only be bought in Daguerreo in Disc 3.
