Spell (まほう, Mahō?, lit. Magic) is a command in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest that allows the user to utilize magic spells found in the schools of magic. The magic system doesn't use MP, but instead uses Magic Left and all spells cost 1 to cast.
Magic works differently than with other Final Fantasy games. Magic is not bought or learned as Benjamin levels up, but is learned by finding spellbooks around the world. There are only twelve spells divided into three schools of magic. At the maximum level 41, Benjamin can have 43 White, 21 Black, and 10 Wizard. While Benjamin can learn all spells, allies have their spells set and cannot learn more through gameplay, although their repertoire have increased in the space of their absence between their first and second appearances in the party.
List of Spells[edit | edit source]
White Magic[edit | edit source]
White Magic can be use defensively (for ally) or offensively (for enemy).
The formula for recover is:
|Exit||—||Battlefield north of Libra Temple|
|Field: Warps the party to the overworld map.|
Battle: Removes one enemy from battle. Benjamin gains no experience and gold from the removed enemy. Has no effect on bosses.
|Field: Restores HP to target.|
Battle: Zombie-elemental attack to undead enemies. Can be repelled, but will have no effect on the party.
|Field: Removes status ailments from target.|
Battle: Can either inflict Poison, Confusion, Sleep, Paralyze, or Petrify on a single enemy.
|Field: Fully restores a Fatal party member's HP. When used on living party member, fully restores HP and status. Does not heal status when used outside of battle.|
Battle: Inflicts Fatal on a single enemy due to an error. In the Japanese and European version, the bug is fixed, inflicting Fatal to undead enemies only.
