Technick

The Technicks part of the License Board (original).

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?, lit. Skills) are command abilities in Final Fantasy XII. 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 and have the correct job class to equip them. Unlike magicks skills, Technicks skills require no MP.

The licenses in the Zodiac versions are limited to certain job classes, for example, the Technicks skill 1000 Needles can only be used by Bushi, 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. In these versions, Technicks are found almost entirely in treasure chests, with only the most basic being found in shops. As such, most shops offer the same set of Technicks and even those in towns not visited until towards the end of the game will not offer anything new.

Using Technicks for over 100 times unlocks Vayne's sprite to the Sky Pirate's Den in the PlayStation 2 versions, and awards the "Premier Prestidigitator" trophy in The Zodiac Age. Acquiring every Technicks skill adds Vossler's sprite and the trophy "Jack-of-all-Trades".

MechanicsEdit

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] + Base Chance

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