Bind is a Black Magic spell that secures an enemy in one position. It prevents the enemy from moving, and because the game is real time with spacial arrangement being very important, this allows a character to either distance himself to avoid physical attack or it will give the player a bit of a head start to run away.

When cast on an enemy, the Bind status has a chance to wear off when the enemy is directly damaged. Spell accuracy is most highly affected by Enfeebling Magic Skill, Magic Accuracy, and INT. The Bind scroll is dropped by many defeated low-level Quadav, as well as some Yagudo and Orcs.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Bind is a Dread ability used by two of the Lucavi, Zalera and Hashmal. It hits one square, has a range of five squares from the user, and inflicts Stop with 100% success rate. See also enemy abilities.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

Bind is an spell of the Judgemaster class, exclusive to Cid Randell, which inflicts Immobilize and Disable on a target. It costs 16 MP to use.

Bind is also used as a keyword for laws that include any ability that causes the Immobilize or Disable effects.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Bind is a Brave attack for Shantotto that creates a field of energy around the opponent that holds them in place for several seconds but does no damage. Shantotto learns to cast Bind in the air and on the ground at Level 13, and it costs 20 CP to equip and 120 AP to master.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Bind returns as one of Shantotto's brave attacks, and now tracks the opponent longer before trapping them. It now costs 30 CP to equip and 80 AP to master.
