Magic Defense Bonus Effect

  • Repeats of this trait do not stack. For example, a Level 25 RDM/WHM will not receive two Magic Defense Bonus I traits.
  • Magic Defense Bonus effects from gear, food or buffs do not require the job trait to be enabled.
  • Each +1 from gear or traits increases the MDB factor in Calculating Magic Damage by 0.01 from its base of 1.00
    • As a result, it reduces magic damage by a bit less than 1%.
