Mastery certificate description

Black Mages excel in attacking enemies with offensive Magic. They wield a variety of spells and can attack multiple targets at once. They possess low Attack power and Defense. They can wield bows and rods.

The Black Mage's battle sprite in the NES version is nearly identical to the one from the original Final Fantasy, but with additional furls on its robe. The Black Mages on the 3D remake wear floor-length black coats with individualized details, such as Refia's upturned collar and blue ribbon and Luneth's three buckle fasteners on the chest.
