Increases party's speed while being performed.
Hastemarch (素早さの歌, Subayasa no Uta?), also known as March, Swift Song, and Swift Shanty, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is used with Sing and increases the Speed of the party, sometimes simply boosting their raw Speed, other times by bestowing Haste status on them.
Hastemarch is a Bardsong usable by Edward in the DS and mobile releases of the game, and by any party member when they use the Bardsong Augment. Hastemarch casts Haste on the party, and the singer must be at Level 40 or higher to use it.
Increases all allies' SPD while singing for the duration of the song.
Swift Shanty is the level 14 ability of the Bard class, requiring 400 AP to learn. At the cost of 22 MP, the user will increase the SPD of all allies for the duration of the song.
Hastemarch comes in three levels of power, increasing the party's Agility by 10, 15, or 20, depending on the level. Onion Knight, Locke and Aerith learn all three levels of Hastemarch, while Princess Sarah learns the Lv.2 version only.
