Dispel costs 16 MP to cast. It is used to remove any positive buffs. In addition to protective buffs like Barrier Barrier, Manaward Manaward, Shield Shield, and Reflect Reflect, it can remove many that have positive effects to enemies, such as Haste Haste and Regen Regen. These buffs can significantly change the course of a battle, as buffed enemies can not only become potentially immune to forms of damage, but can be much more formidable threats.

Dispel removes more buffs than Breach Breach, which only removes protective buffs. However, Dispel's higher MP cost means that those who only wish to remove protective buffs should simply cast Breach instead.
