Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

They can be a nuisance as they use a variety of status spells to cripple the party, and otherwise drain their MP with Rasp and Osmose. If struck by magic they have a chance to counter with Fallen Footsteps, which inflicts Zombie.

They act as a good source of elemental rods which can no longer be bought in the World of Ruin: the Thunder and Ice Rods can be stolen from them, and they drop Flame Rods.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Thundara and Bio spells work best against them.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

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.
