Final Fantasy Tactics description

Shock (ショック, Shokku?), also known as Vengeance, is a recurring ability or spell from the series. When used as an ability, it is associated with the Warrior class, but as a spell is generally a high-ranking Black Magic spell.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy VI[edit | edit source]

Shock is the special command ability of General Leo and Gau has a chance of using this ability from Yojimbo Rage. It deals large amounts of non-elemental magic damage to all enemies, and it also removes the Invisible status if the monster(s) has this status applied to them. Its Spell Power is 128, and it cannot be dodged. Within the game's data, Yojimbo's Shock ability is called Megahit (SNES) and Megashock (Game Boy Advance).

Shock isn't disabled if Leo has been transformed into an Imp. Normally, imp characters cannot use their special abilities. This is because Leo is a temporary playable character not meant to be playable outside of the battle against Kefka in Thamasa. He doesn't inflict the imp status in any shape or form during battle and there's no way to inflict Leo with imp prior to the battle.

Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

Deals physical damage to the enemy.

Description

Shock first appears as one of General Beatrix's abilities in her Seiken skillset. Steiner can learn it as a Sword Art from the Ragnarok. It deals large amounts of physical damage, roughly triple the damage Steiner's normal attack does, usually hitting the damage cap of 9999. It costs 46 MP to use, and can be learned for 60 AP. Shock takes on the elemental properties of the equipped weapon (but gains no further boost from Elem-Atk boosting equipment).

The damage formula is:

Final Fantasy XII[edit | edit source]

Shock is a Black Magick spell which inflicts heavy non-elemental damage on a single target. It is available on Black Magick license 6 costing 50 LP. The spell can be purchased at Balfonheim Port after the events at Pharos for 9,400 gil and initially uses 34 MP to cast.

The Zodiac versions list Shock as a Black Magick 11 License. It is bought in Balfonheim for 7,800 gil and consumes 34 MP. Only the Black Mage job class can use Shock.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]

Shock icon

Shock appeared as an ability in the original version. At the initial release, Shock was a spell learned by Conjurers at rank 12 and cost 3 action points to set. The ability inflicted lightning-elemental damage over time and also reduced lightning magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.

Shock II icon.

In addition, an upgraded version called Shock II also appeared as an ability. The spell could be learned by Conjurers at rank 36. The ability inflicted lightning-elemental damage over time at a higher potency and also reduced the lightning magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.

After the release of patch 1.20, Shock and Shock II became unusable by any class.

Final Fantasy Tactics[edit | edit source]

Vengeance (Shock! on the PlayStation) is used by Beowulf and acts just like the Lifebreak ability, dealing damage equal to the difference in Beowulf's Max HP and current HP. Beowulf learns his at the cost of 600 JP, having a range of 8 and costs 20 MP to use.
