Special Features

Benefits from a permanent Composure- effect and gains +50% enhancing duration when casting on other targets than himself.
Is considered Arcana, thus is susceptible to Monster Correlation effects.
The King of Hearts mainly acts as a RDM but has access to spells of WHMs and BLMs.
Opens the fight up with Dia before any other spells. (Will continually attempt to Dia an enemy even if the enemy is immune)
Will cast cure on any players at 50% or less HP.
Prioritizes Erase and -na spells above other spells. Will quickly cast these on any trust or party member immediately after being debuffed, starting with the master and itself.
Casts Haste, Refresh, and Phalanx on the player regardless of their job or enmity.

  • Will not cast Haste or Refresh on other players or trusts.

Casts Phalanx on the party member or alter ego with the highest enmity on King's current target's list.
Will magic burst Firaga off of Liquefaction SC Icon.png Liquefaction, Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion, or Light SC Icon.png Light skillchains.
From time to time the King of Hearts may randomly “Level Up”, which restores some HP and MP as well as unlocking access to Bludgeon. It doesn’t seem to be actively triggered, but may occur at any time during combat.

Trust Synergy

King of Hearts uses the full range of his enhancing spells on Shantotto or Shantotto II in the same way as on himself and his player and even prioritizes her over the player and himself.
