Advance (ふみこむ, Fumikomu?), also known as Enrage, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is an ability of the Warrior class which reduces the user's Defense but increases their Strength.
Advance is the command ability of the Warrior class. Advance lets the Warrior sacrifice some defense in order to strike harder.
Both the damage bonus and defense reduction are related to the Warrior's current job level using the following formulas:
- Damage Bonus = Original Damage x (1.5 + JobLv / 110)
- Defense Reduction = Original Defense x (1.5 + JobLv / 110)
Which give the following results:
|Job Level||Damage Multiplier||Defense Reduction|
Reckless is the initial ability of the Hero class, costing 2 AP to use. It increases the user's Attack power at the cost of lowering the user's Defense.
Stomp is the Level 1 ability of the Knight job. It deals 125% the damage of a normal attack to a single enemy, but lowers the user's Defense by 25% for two turns.
Boost ATK and reduce DEF for caster
Advance is a special ability exclusive to Luneth, who learns it at Level 92 (6★). It costs 20 MP and allows the caster to greatly boost their own ATK (60%) while reducing their DEF (30%). The effect lasts for three turns.
