Final Fantasy Wiki

A scholar activating Light Arts.

Light Arts is a level 10 Scholar job ability in Final Fantasy XI. It grants access to Strategems that enhance white magic. It reduces MP costs and casting time for White Magic spells by 10%, and increases MP costs and casting time for Black Magic spells by 20%. It raises the skill cap for Enhancing Magic, Divine Magic, and Healing Magic from a D rating to a B+ rating. If Scholar is currently being used as a subjob, the skill increase is based on the main job's level, not the level of the Scholar subjob.

Light Arts and Dark Arts are mutually exclusive. Using one ability will erase the other's bonus if present.

  • Scholar's Pants add an additional 15 skill levels to Enhancing Magic, Enfeebling Magic, Divine Magic, and Healing Magic, effectively bringing skill level up to an A- while in Light Arts.
  • Scholar's Loafers and Argute Mortarboard further reduce White Magic casting and recasting times by an additional 5% each. The two pieces' effects are cumulative if worn at the same time.
