Adds a damage-nullifying barrier to certain actions. Also increases MP cost of Aspected Benefic.
— In-game description
- The effects provided by this action do not stack, therefore if there are two astrologians in the same group both have to use different sects to make full use of their added benefits.
- In parties with a scholar and an astrologian, it's recommended to favor this action's counterart - Diurnal Sect - since scholars only have access to a party-wide shield buff; this would provide both shielding and heal over time effects to the party.
- In parties with a white mage and an astrologian, it's recommended to favor this action over of its counterpart - Diurnal Sect - since white mages only have access to party-wide heal over time abilities; this would provide both shielding and heal over time effects to the party.
