  • Severely reduces accuracy compared to Blind, the effect weakens over time until it wears off.
  • Normal mobs have the ability to resist Flash, although this is extremely rare.
  • Duration is subject to resists and partial-resists, though can last up to 12 seconds if completely unresisted.
  • Stacks with Blind.
  • Does not overwrite itself. If the target is already flashed it will fail to take effect.
  • Acquires a significant amount of Enmity.
  • Automatons with a Flashbulb equipped can use a non-magic version of Flash and, therefore, can not be reflected or absorbed by shadows.
  • This status effect cannot be removed by Blindna, but can be removed by Erase, Esuna or Healing Waltz.
