Job Ability[edit]

  • Reduces the MP cost of your next white magic spell by 50%.
  • Obtained: Scholar Level 10
  • Recast Time: Stratagem Charge
  • Duration: 1 white magic spell or 60 seconds, whichever occurs first


  • Penury is a stratagem, which obeys different usage rules than typical Job Abilities.
  • The 50% reduction in MP cost does not stack with the 10% reduction from Light Arts.
  • Conserve MP can still activate while Penury is in effect.
    • Savant's Pants +1 and +2 cause Conserve MP to take effect every time during usage of this stratagem.
  • The word penury means extreme poverty, destitution, scarcity, or insufficiency. Unlike parsimony, which implies conservation for the sake of prosperity, penury implies conservation out of necessity.
