FFXI wiki icon Samba is a category of abilities in Final Fantasy XI for Dancers. Sambas are Support abilities, restoring HP or MP to anyone in the party. They do not use MP, but instead use TP. They are not spells and do not draw magic-based aggression from creatures like elementals and also, thus, cannot be silenced, but may be affected by Amnesia. Haste has no effect on its recast time.

Haste Samba Edit

Haste Samba is learned at level 45. It inflicts the next target the user strikes with Haste daze, increasing the attack speed of all those engaged in battle with it.
