An Explanation

Cure Potency refers to the effectiveness of healing spells, such as Cure and Curaga, and even spells like Healing Breeze wielded by a Blue Mage despite not bearing "Cure" in their names. Anything that increases Cure Potency directly affects the amount of HP healed by these spells. It should be noted that Cure Potency does not increase the healing effects of Job Abilities, such as Chakra or Curing Waltz.

An example: A White Mage casts Cure II which normally heals their target for 90 HP. If they equip something that gives them Cure Potency +10%, their Cure II will heal their target for 99 HP.

Cure Potency ignores the "soft caps" of healing spells. Equipment that enhances Cure Potency is usually much more effective for healing purposes, as opposed to equipment that enhances Healing Skill or Mind which are greatly limited by soft caps.

Cure Potency only applies when Cure is used to heal a target. It has no effect on the damage done by Cure when used to attack Undead enemies.

Equipment bonus to cure potency caps at +50%.

You can achieve even higher cure potency on lightsday and/or during light weather - particularly zones like Nyzul Isle and Temenos as these have permanent light weather - by using a Korin Obi.
