Overview

Dark Magic is a general category of darkness elemental black magic spells which focus on absorbing from an enemy enhance the caster, including Absorb Spells and Drain/Aspir Spells.

Additionally, there are several other Dark Magic spells with varying effects. As the masters of dark magic, Dark Knights have access to nearly all dark magic spells, with subsets of these spells available to Black Mage, Scholar, Geomancer, and Red Mage.

Dark Magic skill determines the accuracy, potency of some but not all, and spell interruption rate of Dark Magic spells. Dark Magic does nothing for the potency of Absorb spells, but does affect accuracy and duration.
