Black Magic Guide

by Lassarina Aoibhell

Black Magic, used only by Vivi, is principally an attack magic. The following is a chart including spell names, how much MP it takes to cast them, their effects and range, and also what items will teach them (and how much AP it takes.) I have done my best to ensure the accuracy of this guide; however, if you do find an error, please let me know.
