Stoneskin is a White Magic spell that grants the Stoneskin status, which absorbs a certain amount of HP damage. The protection offered by Stoneskin must be completely destroyed before the player or monster will start to take damage again, even from degenerative statuses like Poison, Burn, etc.
The amount of protection is determined by the caster's MND stat and Enhancing Magic skill. It is useful for all jobs, but it is used mostly by mages hoping to compensate for low physical Defense and low Hit Points by providing a buffer from damage. Merchants in Bastok Markets, Port San d'Oria, and Port Windurst will sell Stoneskin scrolls to citizens of their own nation, but only when that nation ranks 1st in the conquest campaign.
Creates a barrier around the target that prevents a fixed amount of damage.Description
Stoneskin appeared as an ability that bestowed the Stoneskin status to all allies within an area of effect. At the initial release, Stoneskin was a Conjurer spell available for use at Rank 6 and it cost 3 action points to set.
Stoneskin was a Conjurer and White Mage spell available at level 34. The spell bestowed the Stoneskin status to a single target for a period of 30 minutes, nullifying physical damage totaling to 10% of target's maximum HP. The spell was also available as an additional action to Disciple of War and Magic classes, as well the Paladin, Scholar, and Astrologian jobs.
Stoneskin was removed as a player action in patch 4.0, but remains available to some NPCs and enemies.
