Notes

  • Overwritten by some forms of Evasion Down.
  • Provides a substantial amount of Evasion when facing "Special Attacks" (>80).
    • "Special Attacks" typically means "Monster TP moves." It is unclear whether this works on the normal swings of monsters like Iron Giants.
    • Since it is a self-targeting spell, Foil is an excellent way of quickly gaining Enmity on multiple targets. This is especially useful when using an AoE ability like Geist Wall or Sheep Song.
    • Potency does not seem to depend on Enhancing Magic Skill.
