Black Mage is a Disciple of Magic ranged DPS job.

Description[edit | edit source]

In days long past, there existed an occult and arcane art known as black magic—a potent magic of pure destructive force born forth by a sorceress of unparalleled power. Those who learned to wield this instrument of ruin came to be called black mages, out of both fear and respect for their gift. Yet great power served to corrupt the judgment of mortal man, and so he unknowingly set out upon the path of ruin.

Adventurers who take the black will become agents of devastation, capable of annihilating those who oppose them through little more than the force of their will.

Elemental Gauge[edit | edit source]

The Elemental Gauge displays several different pieces of information vital to black mages, first and foremost being whether or not they are under the influence of Astral Fire (after casting a Fire spell) or Umbral Ice (after casting a Blizzard spell). All Fire spells cast while under the influence of Astral Fire will have increased potency, but will require more MP. This is the same for Blizzard spells cast while under the influence of Umbral Ice. Umbral Ice also increases the speed with which MP regenerates.

Elemental Gauge

Executing Enochian while under the influence of either Astral Fire or Umbral Ice will add a bar to the gauge's lower-right corner. Enochian increases the potency of magic attacks, as well as unlocks powerful spells such as Blizzard IV. Enochian fades when Astral Fire or Umbral Ice expires.

Elemental Gauge

Casting Blizzard IV grants a black mage 3 Umbral Hearts which are represented by the arrows in the gauge's lower-left corner. An Umbral Heart is consumed each time a Fire spell is cast, nullifying the MP cost increase applied by the Astral Fire status

Elemental Gauge

The Enochian bar will fill every 30 seconds the status is maintained. When the crystal at the bottom of the Elemental Gauge glows pink, the spell Foul (acquired at level 70) can be cast, resetting the timer.
