Final Fantasy VI Espers

The Esper system is yet another unique facet to Final Fantasy VI (though it bears similarities to the Junction system of VIII), and it's one that is either loved or reviled by FF gamers. At the time of the original release, the Esper system caused great buzz because of it's novelty - however, many gamers today find that it makes the game too easy, by providing stat bonuses and permanent learning of magic (as opposed to Final Fantasy VII, where the magic came and went depending on the Materia equipped). Regardless of your stance, find all the esper information you need here. Except where to find Testper.
