"Spellblades use their blade arts to damage and afflict foes with assorted maladies."
The Spellblade is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3, exclusive to Viera. They can use swords to strike enemies and their abilities consist on inflicting status effects while damaging. Spellblades use status-imbued swords such as Oil Blade, which coats the enemy with Oil, at which point an ally can attack with Fire-based attack for extra damage. Spellblades also have access to the potent Blood Price ability, which can easily be abused by a Red Mage, who can overcome the HP cost by double casting an attacking spell that includes herself in its range and wearing the appropriate elemental robe to absorb the damage as health.
