Zanshin is a recurring ability in the series.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy XI Edit

Zanshin is an ability available to Samurai once the Samurai reaches level 20. Originally, Zanshin was available after level 60, but that was changed in the November 2006 version update. The ability is a Job Trait or Passive ability and as such it is always active. The ability allows a Samurai who misses an attack to immediately make a second attack. This is similar to the Double Attack of Warriors, but its activation may be a slightly higher percentage. It also is only effective when a Samurai misses, though it does stack with Double Attack.
