DoT 101

According to the Spring 2004 Strategy Guide, the Prime Element table on page 30, shows the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" effect of the elements in Final Fantasy.

I think this chart clears up the whole "Damage Over Time" (DoT) spell controversy.
Also my experience in watching the Battle Spam in parties seems to show the same flow of elements.

These Spells are as follows;
DIA (DEF down effect)
BIO (ATK down effect)
BURN (INT down effect)
FROST (AGI down effect)
CHOKE (VIT down effect)
RASP (DEX down effect)
SHOCK (MND down effect)
DROWN (STR down eefect)

Charts reads as follows;

Light Cancels Dark
Dark Cancels Light

Fire Cancels Ice
Ice Cancels Wind
Wind Cancels Earth
Earth Cancels Thunder
Thunder Cancels Water
Water Cancels Fire

so if we replace the Element in the chart with a DoT spell;

DIA Cancels BIO
BIO Cancels DIA


According to the chart the only 2 spells that can cancel each other are DIA (Light) & BIO (Dark)(although some believe Dia & Bio are based on which ever spell is the higher level stronger one cancels the other & there is validity to that claim)
All others follow the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" Rule (Frost Cannot cancel Burn, Choke Cannot cancel Frost, etc.)

So I hope this helps clear up some things. Please don't rebutt this post with more hearsay & unconfirmed theories. I got this all out of the game rules, if you think its wrong or not entirely correct, test it for yourself. All I know is that when a fellow BLM casts BURN, my FROST "Has no effect" which according to chart, follows the game's logic.

Happy Nuking.

This spell is quite similar to the spell Dia, in that it does damage (except this time it is Wind damage, as opposed to light) and decreases VIT (which is like decreasing defense). I can't wait for my BLM sub to learn this spell ^_^

I haven't gotten high enough to use this one yet, but I figure it's like the other damage+stat down effects. It does a small amount of damage, and a DOT, and lowers a stat. In this case, VIT, which determines how much damage a monster takes. By lowering it's VIT, physical (not magical) attacks should do more damage.
Found a use

I got this and it does minimal damage about 5 hp, and lower there vitality. My elemental is max and it only does about 5 to 10 dam. don't really know how much vitality is lost from the mobs but it must be minimal too. Hardly us it!!!
