Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

Shadowbind is a special skill found on the Soldier of Peace garb. It has a strength multiplier of 3.0 and no potential to combo. It consumes 150 of Lightning's ATB gauge and also inflicts Daze on the target. It can be assumed that it is supposed to complement Soldier of Peace's other locked ability, Artemis's Arrows, as enemies under Daze suffer twice the normal damage and are unable to avoid incoming attacks. However, it is simply more viable to repeatedly use Artemis's Arrows if pure damage is the desired result, as the Daze effect only has a base duration of 3 seconds making the attack rather redundant while also reducing the customization potential of the garb.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]
