Details on Balthier and the Dark Knight in Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lion War



Balthier from Final Fantasy XII is a new addition to Ramza’s story in Final Fantasy Tactics. Ramza “meets” up with Balthier when he’s trying to rescue Alma and they aren’t exactly on friendly terms at first. Balthier does join the party and his abilities are under the “target” command. The first ability is loosely translated to “straight to the heart” suggests that Balthier’s skill is aiming his gun. He has a unique job class called “sky pirate”. The Dark Knight class which was in Final Fantasy Tactics is also getting some changes. It is now a playable class and there are new Dark Sword skills. One is “weapon basher” which can seal an enemy’s movement (i.e. give the Don’t Move status) and deal damage at the same time. The Dark Knight can equip dark swords like the Chaos Bringer (Chaos Blade in the US version). Also if you missed it earlier see our article describing the Onion Knight’s abilities and a gallery of Final Fantasy Tactics: The Lion War pictures.
