Larceny (ラーセニー, Rāsenī?) is the Thief SP2 ability in Final Fantasy XI. The player steals one positive status effect from the target, with SP1 effects prioritized. Astral Flow, Meikyo Shisui, and all SP2 effects cannot be stolen. It can be recast every 1 hour.
Creation and developmentEdit
Originally, the Thief SP2 ability was intended to be Bamboozle (バンブーズル, Banbūzuru?), which would have worked like Trick Attack only stronger. However, players objected to the idea as being uninteresting, leading to the developers to scrap it in favor of Larceny.
