Notes

  • When you receive a melee attack, Dread Spikes drain HP from your enemy equal to the damage dealt.
    • Total is corrected by the enemy's Magic Damage Taken -% amount.
    • The Drain effect can also be resisted.
    • The full damage of the absorb counts towards the cap regardless of reduction/resists.
    • Monsters that attack via psuedo-TP moves (like Iron Giants) are not affected.
  • Continues draining to counter applicable damage until it reaches a cap, at which point it wears off.
    • The cap is 50% of your max HP when the spell is cast, so wearing HP+ gear increases potency.
    • Increases to 60% with 1200 Job Points spent.
  • Based on your HP when casted.
