FFXIVL Rasp Icon

Rasp appeared as an ability in the original Final Fantasy XIV. At the initial release, Rasp was a spell learned by Conjurers at rank 12 and cost 3 action points to set. The ability inflicted earth-elemental damage over time and also reduced earth magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect. After the release of patch 1.20, Rasp; along with Rasp II, became unusable by any class in the game.

FFXIVL Rasp II Icon

In addition, an upgraded version called Rasp II also appeared as an ability in the game. The spell could be learned by Conjurers at rank 36. The ability inflicted earth-elemental damage over time at a higher potency and also reduced the earth magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.

After the release of patch 1.20, Rasp and Rasp II became unusable by any class in the game.

As of the current moment, neither Rasp spells have appeared as abilities in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

EtymologyEdit

The original name, "Rasupiru" ("Raspir"), is derived from the name of another related spell, "Asupiru" ("Aspir"). While "Aspir" appears to be derived from either the word "Aspirate" (meaning "to draw in by suction,") or the French version of that word, "aspirer," "Raspir" seems to be simply another level of that spell, being given the prefix "ra-" to denote that (the spell "Rahealra" is another example of the "ra-" prefix being used to denote different spell levels in this vein, and "Basuna" and "Esuna" are a further example of a change in prefix being used to denote different levels of the same family of spells). Rasp is an English verb whose meaning is to scrape or file down. Since many iterations of the spell throughout the series involve damaging a target's MP or dealing damage over time, this definition is likely the most appropriate. It is also possible that "Rasupiru" is meant to be "Respirate," "Respire," or the French version of that word, "Respirare," but this is less likely given the katakana used to write the word in Japanese.
