Haste in Final Fantasy II.

This should be quick!
Tidus, Final Fantasy X

Haste (ヘイスト, Heisuto?), also known as Fast, is a spell which refers to the specific spell that induces the status of the same name. Its higher form is called Hastega, also known as Haste 2 or Hasteja. It appears in some games and usually grants all party members the effect of Haste.

Final FantasyEdit

Black Mage - FAST

Haste, also known as FAST in the NES release, is a level 4 Black Magic spell which increases the speed of one ally, allowing their Hit rate to approximately double. Haste can also be used by Clay Golem, Astos, Lich, and Chaos.

The spell can be bought at Elfheim and can be learned by the Black Mage, Black Wizard, Red Mage, Red Wizard, and Ninja job classes. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary Edition releases it costs 15 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy IIEdit

Haste is a Black Magic spell which increases the speed of one or all allies, which increases their Hit rate. As the spell's level grows the effect of the spell increases and the miss rate decreases. The effect can stack, but repeated use on the same character increases the chance that the spell misses. Any character can learn Haste by having them use the Haste Tome (called the Haste Scroll in the Origins release).

Haste Tome
Effect Allows the target to learn Haste when used outside of battle. Casts Haste VIII when used in battle.
Buy In Jade Passage, Raqia
Find In N/A
Won From Gottos, Sorcerer
Cost 20,000 gil (all releases)

Haste VI can be cast by Gottos and Sorcerer, while Haste VIII can be cast by the Emperor in the first fight with him.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Haste is a level 6 White Magic spell that can be bought in Doga's Manor and Doga's Village for 10,000 gil. Unei can also cast Haste when she joins the party as a guest. Unei's variant is cast over the entire party. The item Bacchus's Cider can also cast the Haste spell.

The spell increases the Attack power of the target based on the power of the spell and increases the target's Attack Multiplier based on the Multiplier and Accuracy of the spell. Changing items in a character's hand will negate the effect of Haste.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Haste, also known as Fast, is a White Magic spell. It can be used by Rosa, Tellah, and Porom. It has a casting time of 1. In SNES, PS, GBA and PSP versions it costs 25 MP to cast, and in DS, iOS and Android versions it costs 20 MP. In SNES, PS, GBA and PSP versions it decreases the speed modifier by 3 (default being 16 for all targets), and can only be decreased to 12, making the ATB gauge increase nearly 25% normal speed.

Haste can cause Reflect, Sap, and Stop to wear off more quickly and reducing the total damage done by Sap. It also speeds up Gradual Petrify, speeds up recovery from Sleep, and accelerate the effect of Poison. It absolutely has no effect on Doom, except in as much as it allows the player to take more actions before the countdown reaches 0.

Haste can be cast by Lunar Odin and Sorceress. Plague Horror can also cast this spell, but will do so on the party while they all have the Doom status, as Haste was supposed to affect the countdown.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Haste returns as a White Magic spell in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV. Rosa learns it at level 33 and Porom learns it at level 38. It increases the target's Speed at the cost of 20 MP.

Haste returns and retains the same effect, albeit it is used far less frequently. The Synergist role no longer has manual access to it, so the player must resort to either items, equipment or critical/auto effects to gain Haste. Preemptive strikes also grant Weak Haste. Paradigm Pack monsters whose trait is Zippy may be able to bestow Haste under certain conditions.
