  • This spell reduces the target's accuracy based on dINT with this formula:
    • Potency = (1/4)(dINT +80) for dINT > -39; Potency = (1/8)(dINT +120) for dINT <-40; potency caps at 5 and 50.
  • The NIN spell Kurayami: Ni and RDM Merited spell Blind II will overwrite Blind; casting Blind when either have already landed on a mob will result in no effect.
  • The blind effect from Flash is now different than the blind from Blind, Blind II, and Kurayami: Ni.
