  • Parsimony is a stratagem, which obeys different usage rules than typical Job Abilities.
  • The 50% MP reduction for the next spell is based on the original cost and is not affected by the 10% reduction from Dark Arts.
  • Conserve MP can still activate while Parsimony is in effect.
    • Savant's Pants +1 and +2 cause Conserve MP to take effect every time during usage of this stratagem.
  • The word parsimony means extreme or excessive economy or frugality, or stinginess. Unlike penury, which implies conservation out of necessity, parsimony implies conservation for the sake of prosperity.
