Causes Confuse, which makes single/multiple targets erratic.Description
Confuse is a Wht Mag spell in Final Fantasy IX for Dagger used to inflict the status of the same name that confuses one or multiple targets, making them attack themselves and their allies. Confuse is vulnerable to Reflect and works with Return Magic. Confuse can be cast by Cactuar and Quale.
Confuse inflicts the Confuse status to one or multiple targets at the cost of 8 MP, which makes the affected attack random targets, including attacking themselves, with their normal physical attack with halved accuracy and they are unable to evade. The chance to inflict the status to a target with the spell is as follows:
Afterward, two randomly generated values determine if the spell will hit:
- A random number 0...99 >= Chance, the spell misses its mark
- A random number 0...99 < Target Magic Evade, the target evades
Confuse makes the affected erratic, unable to evade attacks, and possibly hurt itself. Their accuracy is halved and they cannot evade. However, all bosses are immune and usually the player party has more members than the enemy party, meaning the chance the affected enemy still attacks the party is good. Against tough enemies that are weak to status abnormalities, like the ones in the final dungeon, using abilities that defeat them, like Odin, Break or Stop, is likely more worthwhile than using Confuse.
Whereas Vivi can boost his status-infliction rate with spells with Focus, Dagger must rely on her natural stats.
