Causes Holy damage to enemies whose LEVELs are multiples of 4.


LV4 Holy is a Blue Magic spell in Final Fantasy IX, available to Quina. It deals magical Holy damage to enemies whose levels are a multiple of 4. It costs 22 MP to cast. It cannot be reflected and works with Return Magic. Ozma and Amdusias can use it if there is a party member susceptible to it.


Quina learns LV4 Holy by eating a Feather Circle, Torama, or Amdusias. The earliest Quina can learn it is from the Feather Circles in the Fossil Roo.


LV4 Holy targets enemies whose levels are multiples of 4; against all other enemies, it will miss.

Where Rnd means a random number and MOD means modulus operation. "Rnd MOD x" can be read as a random number between 0 and x-1.

Bonus is halved by target's Shell or Quina being under Mini. Bonus is boosted by 50% if Quina equips a Mage's Hat, Light Robe, Jade Armlet, or Rebirth Ring; equipping multiples does not stack the effect.


LV4 Holy is the player's first possible access to Holy magic before Eiko learns the superior Madeen and Holy later on. Dagger's Scan can be used to check enemies' levels to see if they are susceptible. LV4 Holy can do good damage, especially if the player equips Quina with a Jade Armlet or one of the other Holy-boosting equipment pieces. Veteran in Ipsen's Castle is on a vulnerable level and is also weak to the Holy element. LV4 Holy works against many endgame bosses, but by that time, Frog Drop likely does superior damage for less MP if the player has been doing the frog catching sidequest.
