"Help" description

Arcana (妖術, Youjutsu?, lit. Witchcraft) is a command in Final Fantasy X-2 mainly associated with the Dark Knight dressphere. The Arcane Lore accessory and Chaos Maelstrom Garment Grid also grant access do it. Individual spells can be accessed via specific accessories and Garment Grids. The Arcane Tome accessory cuts the time required for Arcana by 40%.

It specializes in inflicting status ailments to opponents. Paine's Mascot dressphere's Cutlery command is like a stronger variant of Arcana magic.
