"Spellblades use their blade arts to damage and afflict foes with assorted maladies."

The Spellblade is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, 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.

A popular setup is to set Green Magick as the Spellblade's secondary, with the Spellbound Passive ability and Ribbon headgear equipped. This allows the Spellblade to Protect, Shell, Leap and Tranq herself for long periods of time and cast many area of effect debuffs on enemies, even when she's in the spell's range. This combo is commonly called the Battlemage. The Spellbade's stat growth isn't great, the only noteworthy stats are her excellent speed and average attack stat but her Abilities will benefit any bow wielder to cause both damage and a chance to inflict a debuff.

A notable Spellblade, Valentyne is a member of Prima Donna.
