Hey you! Take me on!

Provoke (挑発, Chōhatsu?), also known as Taunt, Lure, Decoy, or Draw Attacks, is an ability that entices enemies to attack. This is often used to protect weaker party members, or to keep monsters from using special attacks/magic.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy III Edit

Provoke is the Viking class's command ability, which forces the enemy party to attack the user and lowers the enemy's Defense equal to the following formula:

Enemy Defense = Original Defense x (100 - (0.5 x JobLv))%

The success rate of Provoke is as follows:

  • Job Level 1-20 = 60%
  • Job Level 21-40 = 70%
  • Job Level 41-80 = 80%
  • Job Level 81-98 = 90%
  • Job Level 99-100 = 100%

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Edit

TAYPSP Golbez Taunt

Golbez has the Taunt ability, which makes all enemies attacks target him. It has a Charge Time of 0.

Final Fantasy V Edit

Lure's description indicates that it causes enemies to attack the character with Lure—however, this is actually incorrect, and the ability's real effect is to increase the frequency of random encounters. Lure is the first ability learned from the Gladiator job class, only available in the Advance remake.

Final Fantasy X Edit

Provoke is a Special ability found in Tidus's section of the Sphere Grid. It takes 4 MP to use and when cast, it entices the enemy to attack only the character who used it. A provoked foe reverts to normal the moment the provoker leaves the active party or dies. Successfully provoking an enemy will also counteract the Berserk status.

Final Fantasy XI Edit

Provoke is available to Warriors at level 5. When used, it will create an instant high amount of enmity towards the user. It is viewed as an almost essential ability to have in order to serve as a tank. Its recast Time is 30 seconds and its duration is Instant. In Ballista and Brenner (player vs. player battles), this ability adds Provoked status instead of enmity. In Besieged, provoking a charmed person puts them to sleep. A Puppetmaster's Automaton can use this ability by having a Strobe equipped and a Fire Maneuver in place.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

Provoke is an enemy ability that inflicts Berserk on the target. It can be used by Seeq Cateran and Bangaa Pirate.

Final Fantasy XIII Edit

Challenge is a similar ability that forces a single enemy to attack the user. It can be learned by Sazh (stage 7), Snow (stage 6), and Fang (stage 7).

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Edit

Provoke-ffxiii-icon

Provoke is a Sentinel ability that draws the attention of enemies to the user if successful. It also causes the Provoke status. Additionally, the player can see if the enemy is immune to Provoke or not by checking the top-right corner of the enemy scan. It has replaced the Death status in the screen, since Death cannot be cast. It has an ATB cost of 1 and a modifier of 0.0.

It can be learned by Serah Farron (role level 1), Noel Kreiss (role level 1), and all tameable Sentinel monsters at level 1 (except Navidon).

Final Fantasy XIV Edit

Gesture threateningly, placing yourself at the top of a target's enmity list.
—Description
FFXIV Provoke Icon

Provoke is a Role Action common to all tanks learned at level 16. When used, it gives the user enmity equivalent to that of the player with the current highest enmity on its target's threat list, plus one. For maximum effectiveness, it is best to pair Provoke with other high enmity-generating abilities, such as Flash, to firmly establish a hate threshold higher than that of the previous target. Thus, while not being useful for generating enmity when one is already the monster's target, it is an absolutely vital tool for "tank swap" mechanics on difficult bosses. Before the release of Stormblood, it was a Gladiator ability learned at level 22, with the same function and can be used by other classes.
