Basic Information
Final Fantasy

Haste is a magic spell used most notably in the Final Fantasy franchise. When cast on a player or enemy, the spell, depending on the game, may do any of the following:

  • Reduce GCD
  • Reduce cast-time of magic spells
  • Reduce delay between auto-attacks
  • Increase the rate that the ATB gauge recharges
  • Increase the speed of casting and/or and character animations

Haste could be acquired in different ways depending on the game. In Final Fantasy VII, players gained the spell immediately after equipping the Time Materia. In Final Fantasy VIII, the spell could be drawn from certain enemies, or synthesized from certain items.

In Final Fantasy X, Haste was a learnable White magic skill on the Sphere Grid, and had a successor spell, Hastega.
