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.

Conversely, White Mages often avoid casting Flash to keep their Enmity levels as low as possible. Flash is based on the Divine Magic skill, unlike Blind (which is based on Enfeebling Magic skill).

  • 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.
