Sword Magic is essentially Black Magic attached to your weapon; it allows you to benefit from the effects of Black Magic, but without continuous MP consumption. So you can target elemental weaknesses or inflict the enemies with status ailments while you stab them. If you desire extra damage for your physical characters, give Sword Magic a good look.

Note : Sword Magic share the same spells (and thus scrolls) as Black Magic, except for Holy (White Magic) at Level 6.
