FFV iOS Time Magic

Time Magic command (iOS).

Perform time magic.

FFV Time Magic Icon iOSTime Magic (じくう, Jikū?, lit. Space-Time), also known as Time, is the primary ability of the Time Mage job from Final Fantasy V. This skillset involves manipulating time and space, either to cast positive status effects on allies or to cripple and destroy enemies. It is disabled if the user is silenced. Time Magic is purchased from shops in various towns and is divided into 6 levels. Upon leveling up the Time Magic command as a Time Mage, the command can be equipped to other jobs as well and use spells up to the learned level. When using the Time Mage job the character can use all the spells they have regardless to what level they have leveled up the command.

Mechanics Edit

Some spells have been programmed to always hit their target.

$ Spell Hit\% = Spell Hit\% + Attacker Level - Target Level $[1]
$ Evade\% = Target Magic Evade\% $

If the spell is multi-targeted the Spell Hit% is halved. Spells that are naturally multi-target do not suffer the penalty. If the target has Shell, the Spell Hit% is also halved, and if the target is a Toad its Evade % is reduced to 0.

The game generates two random numbers between 0 and 99.

If N1 >= Hit%, the spell misses
If N2 < Evade%, the spell misses

Damage is capped at 9999. Damage-dealing Time Magic spells have their own damage calculation formulas separate from the formula used for Black Magic spells.

Time Magic abilities give characters the Time Mage's base Magic based on the following formula:

Magic = Time Mage Base Magic - 2 * (6 - Time Mage Job Level)

However, the value of the base Magic granted in this way is capped at the Time Mage's base.

Thus the base Magic stat for a character with Time Magic equipped would be as follows:

  • Level 1 = 38 base Magic
  • Level 2 = 40 base Magic
  • Level 3 = 42 base Magic
  • Level 4 = 44 base Magic
  • Level 5 = 46 base Magic
  • Level 6 = 48 base Magic
  • Level 7 = 48 base Magic

Upon mastery, Freelancers and Mimes gain the Time Mage's base Agility and Magic unless they already have a higher base from another mastered job.
