Minne is a type of Enhancing Song used by Bards. It increases the Defense stat for party members within range.

Four songs give this effect. Different tiers can be combined.


  • "Minne Effect" is one of the items within the Bard Group 1 job-specific merit category. Each time this is merited will increase the Defense boost of each Minne spell cast by 1, up to a maximum of 5. If the Bard fully merits this item and casts two Minnes, players receiving the effects will have 10 more points of Defense than they would otherwise.
  • A player wearing the Titanis Earring can gain the earring's +4 Enmity effect by having at least one Minne spell cast on them. The effect lasts for as long as the player maintains Minne status.

Songs are learned by Bards only, at the following levels:

1: Knight's Minne
21: Knight's Minne II
41: Knight's Minne III
61: Knight's Minne IV
