FFIX Steiner Swd Art

Steiner using a Swd Art skill.

Use sword skill.
—Description

Swd Art (剣技, Kenwaza?, lit. Sword Art) is Steiner's skillset from Final Fantasy IX. Many names of its skills derive from various job class abilities from previous games, and largely encompass abilities from Samurai, Paladin (or Knight), and Dark Knight. It has several new moves original to Steiner, such as the various Breaks, and features one of Cloud's Limit Breaks as a normal command. 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 before entering the Shimmering Island.
