It serves as a preferred method of inflicting earth damage to single targets during the level 80 leveling period for most of the pure casting jobs that have access to the spell. It generally is used as the main damage output on enemies and then followed by weaving Stone III into the damage rotation during recast periods. Its damage output can be increased when used in conjunction with the Black Mage's Burst spell or the Red Mage's Enthunder II spell, which lower the enemy's resistance to earth-elemental damage.
The Blood Pact version of the ability can used by Titan at level 60. It deals moderate earth-element magic damage, with its damage output also being based on the user's TP when casting the spell. It costs 118 MP to cast.
