This article aims to explain how to learn Quickenings in the new and remastered, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age [FF12:TZA].
How to learn Quickenings
For a character to learn a Quickening, they have to learn via the license board. However, the license board is not the same across all job classes. Some job classes only have three. However, the Shikari is one of the few job classes that have four Quickenings.
Learning Requirements for Quickenings
Learning the Quickening licenses include a variety of requirements. For example:
|Quickening||50||Ninja Sword 1|
|Quickening||75||Ninja Sword 2|
|Quickening||100||Ninja Sword 3|
|Quickening||125||Orochi N & Yagyuu Darkblade|
Table 1. Excerpt of the Shikari License Board.
Based on the table, there are four quickenings for the Shikari class. Each Quickening as the points increase, also increases the damage output along with the difficulty of execution. On the second column, the word “LP” means “License Points”. The License Points are earned via Mob Hunts, boss fights, Esper boss fights, and other story-related battles.
However, the License Points are not always enough. In the third column, there’s a list of licenses. Those are the licenses one must have before getting Quickening. Because of this, it may take a lot of License Points and farming in order to earn those Licenses. Most especially, for Quickenings.
