It can be used by White Mage and Red Battlemage, and by Monk and Time Battlemage by learning of a required Esper, and by Archer after activating a Quickening license. Larsa has it when he joins as a guest.
Because of the Effect Capacity system in the PlayStation 2 versions hinders players from performing special actions or magick spells (as only a limited amount can be performed at once), casting Cura and Curaga under Faith status instead of Curaja is more efficient, because they cost three units of effect capacity and consume less MP altogether, making Cura useful until end game. In The Zodiac Age, this is no longer an issue.
Cura Mote was added to the Zodiac versions that lets the party use the spell by consuming the item. The player can heal a party with Reflect status with Cura Mote.
