Light Step (ダメージゆか, Damēji Yuka?), also known as Antitrap, Ignore Weather (移動距離天候無視, Idō Kyori Tenkō Mushi?), Any Weather, Ignore Terrain (移動距離地形無視, Idō Kyori Chikei Mushi?), Any Terrain, Lava Walking (溶岩上移動, Yōgan Jō Idō?), Move on Lava, Swim, or Waterbreathing, is a recurring support ability in the series that lets the party walk over some or all types of damage floors without fear of taking damage, or be able to walk across areas that they normally would not be able to cross.
- See also: Float (Ability).
Light Step is the last ability of the Geomancer class, taking 100 ABP to master. It allows the party to walk across damage floors without taking damage.
Ignore Terrain allows the user to walk over waterlands, such as rivers, and Lava Walking lets the user walk over lava tiles. Both are learned from the Geomancer class, first being 220 JP and second being 150 JP.
Levitate and Teleport are learned by Time Mages. Levitate causes the user to float above the ground, allowing them to move pretty much anywhere, while Teleport allows the unit to instantly reappear on any tile, though it has an increased chance of failing the farther they move. Master Teleportation is an ability some enemies have, which is the same as Teleport, but without the chance of failure.
Waterbreathing is a monster exclusive ability of the Mindflayer Family. It allows them to move and stop even when fully submerged in water of depth 3. Oddly enough, the ability as a cost of 200 JP.
Another exclusive monster ability is called Cannot enter water, this ability makes monsters unable to walk in water, restricting them to land terrain. This ability too has a cost of 200 JP.
