Sealed Verses in NieR Replicant are the magical abilities conjured by the Protagonist's companion, Grimoire Weiss. Sealed Verses are basically spells that can be used against Enemies and Bosses, these can be acquired through the course of the story and by defeating specific bosses of the game. As sung in the Song of the Ancients, it mentions that acquiring all Sealed Verses can be used to destroy the source of the Black Scrawl. This page covers a list of all the Sealed Verses in NieR Replicant.
How do you obtain Sealed Verses?
You can begin to obtain Sealed Verses once you progress in the game and are introduced to Grimoire Weiss in the Lost Shrine. You will then obtain your first Sealed Verse during Combat. The rest of the Sealed Verses are attained as the storyline progresses, usually during or after completing a boss Fight Sequence. They will be found in your menu under "Magic/Abilties." You will be able to swap them into your controls, two at a time. More can be bound to different keys if forgoing another martial art ability.
How do you upgrade a Sealed Verse?
They are usually leveled up as your main character, NieR, levels up in game. You will then be able to charge up the attack to create larger and more damaging effects.
On the Playstation, L1 / L1 are used to cast your Sealed Verses. Each one drains a varying level of MP shown on the blue meter below the HP meter. Typically. you would have only two Sealed Verses equipped at a time to alternate during battle. Up to four can be equipped if you are willing to forgo other action controls like your evade roll or block. The MP meter restores itself gradually over time, but can be accelerated when hitting magic projectiles with melee attacks.
