The Wizard's Robes is a low to mid-ranked mystic robes, giving 12 Defense and 4 Magick Power, as well as 32 or 5 MP depending on version. Mystic armor offer magick-related bonuses that affect all types of magickal actions, from casting black magick to damage an enemy, to casting white magick to heal the party. Magick Power is also a factor when determining damage dealt by katana, staves, and maces.

In the Zodiac versions, White Mage, Red Battlemage, Black Mage, and Bushi can equip it, and so the Wizard's Robes is only useful to buy if the player has chosen any of these License Boards for their party's first jobs.

Etymology[]

Wizard is another name for a Magician. Wizards in fantasy literature and RPGs often draw from the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, whose Wizards of Middle-earth are a group of beings outwardly resembling Men but possessing much greater physical and mental power. Each Wizard has robes of a characteristic color, Gandalf the Grey being a quintessential example.
