Final Fantasy XIIEdit

Countdown is a Time Magick spell that requires the Time Magick 3 license to use. It has a 55% chance to inflict Doom to one target at the cost of 8 MP, and can be reflected. It can be bought for 3,100 gil at Eruyt Village after obtaining Lente's Tear, Mt Bur-Omisace, Rabanastre after defeating Bergan, and Nalbina Fortress after defeating Bergan.

In the International version, it now has a 60% accuracy, requires the Time Magick 6 license to use, and can only be used by the Time Mage job. It can only be obtained by finding it as treasure at Stilshrine of Miriam (Ward of Velitation).
