Shock (ショック, Shokku?), also known as Vengeance, is a recurring ability or spell from the series. When used as an ability, it is associated with the Warrior class, but as a spell is generally a high-ranking Black Magic spell.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI Shock is the special command ability of General Leo and Gau has a chance of using this ability from Yojimbo Rage. It deals large amounts of non-elemental magic damage to all enemies, and it also removes the Invisible status if the monster(s) has this status applied to them. Its Spell Power is 128, and it cannot be dodged. Within the game's data, Yojimbo's Shock ability is called Megahit (Super Nintendo) and Megashock (Game Boy Advance).

Unlike many of the other battle commands, Shock isn't disabled if Leo has been transformed into an Imp. Normally, imp characters cannot use their special abilities. This is due to the fact that Leo is a temporary playable character not meant to be playable outside of the battle against Kefka in Thamasa. He doesn't inflict the imp status in any shape or form during battle and there's no way to inflict Leo with imp prior to the battle.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

IX

Deals physical damage to the enemy.
—Description

Shock first appears as one of General Beatrix's abilities in her Seiken skillset. Later in the game, Adelbert Steiner can learn it as a Sword Art from the Ragnarok. It deals large amounts of physical damage, roughly three times the damage Steiner's normal attack does, usually amounting to 9,999 damage. It costs 46 MP to use, and can be learned for 60 AP. Shock takes on the elemental properties of the weapon when used.

The damage formula for Shock is as follows:

Base = Atk Pwr * 3 - Target's Defence[1]
Bonus = Str ... [(Lv + Str) / 8] + Str
Damage = Base * Bonus

FFXIVL Shock Icon

Shock appeared as an ability in the original Final Fantasy XIV. At the initial release, Shock was a spell learned by Conjurers at rank 12 and cost 3 action points to set. The ability inflicted lightning-elemental damage over time and also reduced lightning magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.

FFXIVL Shock II Icon

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

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

As of the current moment, neither Shock spells have appeared as abilities in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, despite it appearing in the game's files.
