Flash is a White Magic spell available to Paladins and White Mages that inflicts a special status similar to Blindness that lasts up to twelve seconds if completely unresisted (the status is also known as Flash). Flash generates a large amount of enmity for the caster, so it is a useful tool for a Paladin to gain the enemy's attention.
- Normal monsters have the ability to resist Flash, although this is extremely rare.
- Stacks with Blind.
- Does not overwrite itself. If the target is already flashed it will fail to take effect.
- Generates a significant amount of Enmity.
- Automatons with a Flashbulb equipped can use an ability with the same effect, which cannot be reflected or absorbed by shadows.
- This status effect cannot be removed by Blindna, but can be removed by Erase, Esuna, or Healing Waltz.
