Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy XI[edit | edit source]

Feint is a Merit ability, only available to level 75 Thieves. When used, the player's next attack will decrease the target's evasion by a significant amount, often enough to make a target that is otherwise near impossible to hit a lot more easier to hit (a difference of -40 evasion or more). It may be recast every 10 minutes, with further Merit upgrades decreasing the recast time. The decrease in evasion will last on the target creature for 30 seconds.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Feint is a French term that entered English via the discipline of swordsmanship and fencing. Feints are maneuvers designed to distract or mislead, done by giving the impression that a certain maneuver will take place, while in fact another, or even none, will. In military tactics and many types of combat, there are two types of feints: feint attacks and feint retreats.
