The Technicks part of the License Board.

Technicks are skills that let you do things no Magicks can. Stealing treasures from your foes, staunching wounds... You should give 'em a try.

Technicks (, Waza?) are skills in Final Fantasy XII. In the original version all characters can learn the same skills, due to the game's lack of unique classes. A Technicks skill must be bought from a shop before becoming available to the party, but for a character to be able to use the Technicks skill, they must first buy the appropriate license using License Points. Unlike magicks skills, Technicks skills require no MP.

In the International Zodiac Job System version, the Technicks licenses are limited to certain job classes, for example, the Technicks skill 1000 Needles can only be used by Mononofu, Shikari and Archer. Sometimes the placement of the Technicks licenses for each of the twelve job classes' License Board requires players to obtain Espers or Quickening licenses first - since these licenses will disappear from other boards once they are selected, players have to choose the licenses wisely, or risk not being able to use a Technicks skill.

Using Technicks for over 100 times unlocks Vayne's sprite to the Sky Pirate's Den and earns the player the title of Premier Prestidigitator. Buying every Technicks skill adds Vossler's sprite and the title Jack-of-all-Trades.

While some offensive Technicks skills always hit, most techs have a base hit chance, which is:

Success Chance = Base Chance + (User's Lv - Target's Lv) (%)[1]

If user's Lv is greater than target's Lv, the chance becomes:

Success Chance = 3 x (User's Lv - Target's Lv) (%)[1]

All damage dealt via Technicks skills is physical in nature, except for Shades of Black, which is magickal. Technicks are unaffected by Reverse.
