  • Restores a large amount of HP and removes all status ailments for party members within area of effect.
  • Obtained: White Mage Level 1
  • Recast Time: 2:00:00
  • Duration: Instant


  • Benediction is a White Mage's Two Hour Ability.
  • Upon usage, instantly restores a large amount of HP and removes (almost) all status ailments of party members within the area of effect.
  • Accrues an amount of enmity to the user based on the amount of HP restored.
  • As of the 4/18/06 version update, Benediction now cures status ailments, though Amnesia, Terror, Charm and Weakness cannot be removed by Benediction or any means. The only exception to this rule is the Assault Lamia No.13 where Benediction, Dispel and other dispel-like spells can remove charm. Also, Benediction does not remove doom, at least not 100% of the time. It is unknown whether it only has a chance of removing doom, just as Cursna only has a chance of removing it.
  • Formula seems to be (max HP of target) * (level of WHM) / (level of target).

Macro Syntax

  • /ja "Benediction" <me>
  • Since Benediction is a two hour special, some people prefer not to make a macro for it to prevent unintentional activation.
