** Requires the 100 or 1,200 Blue Mage job gift.

Notes

  • Involved in Calculating Magic Damage, specifically as part of the (100 + Magic Attack Bonus)/(100 + Magic Defense Bonus) ratio.
  • This trait affects all magic damage, including Quick Draw and elemental weapon skills
    • Does not affect breath damage, which is not technically magic damage but may be elemental enough to be confusing.
  • This trait has no known cap.
  • Same tiered traits do not stack, i.e. Magic Defense Bonus I from White Mage main and Magic Defense Bonus I from Red Mage Support Job.
  • Enemies do not seem to have inherent Magic Defense Bonus unless the they're an NM or obtained MDB from a trait
