Elemental Magic is a general category which includes spells that fall into one of several main subcategories focused on causing magical damage to enemies. Elemental Magic spells are primarily available to Black Mage and additionally available to Geomancer, Scholar, Red Mage, and Dark Knight.
  • Elemental "Nukes": Spells that cause immediate elemental damage to one or more targets.

Elemental Magic skill determines the accuracy and spell interruption rate of Elemental Magic spells. It does not affect the magic damage of any of these spells, with the exception of the spell Meteor.

The damage for nukes and helix spells is calculated from a formula which depends on the caster's and target's various stats. The main caster statistics which affect this damage potential are INT, Magic Attack Bonus, and elemental damage affinity and potency bonuses.
