Lullaby is a type of Song used by Bards. It temporarily inflicts Sleep status on enemies.

Two songs give this effect. Foe Lullaby is single-target, while Horde Lullaby has a small Area of Effect and can possibly hit multiple enemies.


  • As with most other sleep effects, Lullaby status can be removed by taking damage, or via a direct HP-restorative action such as Cure.
  • Unlike the Black Magic spells Sleep and Sleepga, Lullaby inflicts a light-element sleep status. This makes Lullaby much more likely to successfully land on targets susceptible to the light element, such as undead enemies like Skeletons. (See the Bestiary for more information.)
  • Both types of Lullaby have equal priority to the first tier of Sleep and Sleepga, meaning that casting these spells when Lullaby is already in place on a target will have no effect, and vice versa.
  • Sleep II and Sleepga II will overwrite both types of Lullaby (and the tier 1 Sleep spells).
  • The AoE range of Horde Lullaby is significantly smaller than that of Sleepga. Intended targets must be within closer proximity in order to successfully hit them all.
  • Like other offensive spells that have AoE, Horde Lullaby is capable of removing all of a target's "shadow images" in addition to attempting to sleep the target, making this spell potentially ideal to use against targets that can cast Utsusemi or Blink. Even if the sleep effect does not take place (or even if the target is completely immune to sleep status), shadow images will always be removed by Horde Lullaby.
  • Both Lullaby songs have a recast time cap of 11 seconds.
