Shining light, shield from all directions! Protect 2!
- —Upon casting in PlayStation version.
Protect 2, or Protectja, is a White Magic used by the Priest Job class. It gives Protect status to all targets in range. It costs 25 MP to use, has a speed of 50, and cost 600 JP to learn. Unlike Protect, it can hit targets vertically up to three spaces, and cannot be reflected.
But like Shellja, both suffer from low success rate and long casting time, rendering them practically useless. Protectja has a 10% chance of being randomly learned in battle if cast on a priest that has not learned the spell yet and is inflicted with the status.
