Final Fantasy II[edit | edit source]

Creates a double image, raising evasion.

Description

Blink is a White Magic spell that increases the Evasion of one or all allies, which reduces the hit rate of enemy attacks. As the spell's level grows, the spell's effectiveness and success rate increases. The effect can stack, however, repeated use on the same unit(s) increases the chance that the spell will miss. Any character can learn Blink by having them use the Blink Tome (Blink Scroll in Final Fantasy Origins).
