Appearances[edit | edit source]
Reduces all foes' number of attacks.
Slow (SLOW on the NES and Slow1 in Final Fantasy Origins) is a level 2 Black Magic spell that can be bought in Pravoka and can be learned by the Black Mage, Black Wizard, Red Mage, Red Wizard, and Ninja job classes.
Temporarily reduces foes' number of attacks.
Slow is a White Magic spell which reduces the speed of one or all enemies, reducing their Hit Rate. As the spell's level grows, the potency and the success rate of the spell increases. The effect can stack, but multiple castings on the same enemy will decrease the spell's success rate. Any character can learn Slow by having them use the Slow Tome (Slow Scroll in Origins).
|Effect||Allows the target to learn Slow when used outside of battle. Casts Slow VIII on all enemies when used in battle.|
|Cost||3,000 gil (Origins)|
|2,000 gil (Dawn of Souls, 20th Anniversary Edition)|
Slows the passing of time.
Slow is a White Magic spell. It has a casting time of 1, costs 14 MP in the 2D versions, and 10 MP in the 3D versions. It reduces the speed at which enemies act. Most bosses are not immune to Slow, so it usually proves a sound strategy to use it at the start of a battle. It has a 70% accuracy in 2D versions (90% accuracy in 3D versions). In 2D versions the spell power is +8 of the target's Speed modifier (with the default speed modifier being 16 for all targets), and can go up as far as 32, halving the target's ATB speed. Slow can be used by Lunar Dragon, Sorceress, and White Dragon.
Slow can cause Reflect, Sap, and Stop to be prolonged before it wears off and increase the total damage done by Sap. It also delays Gradual Petrify, delays recovery from Sleep, and delays the effect of Poison. It has no effect on Doom, except in as much as it allows the player to take fewer actions before the countdown reaches 0.
Slow is a White Magic spell that can be cast for a cost of 14 MP. It lowers the target's speed, which means it takes longer for the target's gauge to fill. Rosa, Porom, Fusoya, and White Mages always have this ability. Leonora can learn it at level 13.
Slows the passing of time for one enemy.
Reduces the target's speed.
Slow is an Effect spell learned through the magicites Siren at a x7 rate and from Quetzalli at a x20 rate. It costs 5 MP to cast, has a hit rate of 120, and is vulnerable to Runic. Slow can be cast by Blue Dragon, Curlax, Level 10 Magic, Level 50 Magic, and Abaddon.
Slow is the second level magic on the Time Materia and costs 20 MP to cast. The spell targets a single enemy unless paired with an All Materia and can be reflected. It is a useful spell as many of the bosses are vulnerable to Slow status. The enemies Killbin and Bahba Velamyu, and the bosses Helletic Hojo and Bizarro∙Sephiroth, can all use the spell against the party.
Slow is the second ability of Time Materia, costing 3 MP to cast. It reduces how fast an ally's ATB gauge fills up, and reduces the amount of attacks the enemy can throw out in a period of time. The spell never misses, but can fail.
Slow can be used by Hedgehog Pie King.
Slow is available early on from the enemies encountered near Balamb Town. The spell can only target single enemy, and is not as useful as previous incarnations, but is effective against a number of early bosses. The spell also only junctions well with Speed, Status Attack, or Status Defense, but there are several better options for junction with Speed than Slow.
Slows down ATB Gauge.
Slow can be learned for 20 AP from the Ice Staff or Magus Hat and costs 6 MP to cast. It can be reflected and works with Return Magic. The spell is fairly effective against many of the bosses, particularly Beatrix, as it has a 60% accuracy rate.
Slow is a White Magic spell available both to White and Red Mages. It will reduce the frequency of enemy attacks as well as increase cast and recast times on magic. Higher level enfeebling magic of the same type is also available to Red Mages exclusively. Slow's upgrade is Slow II.
