                                   INTRODUCTION
    ===============================================================================
    This FAQ explains most aspects of the battle system used in Final Fantasy IX.
    The information in this guide was got through hours of in-game testing or from
    people who hacked the information from the game itself.

    [1.0]                                ATB
    ===============================================================================
    The ATB bar is what determines how quick a character can act. The rate the
    ATB bar fills is affected by Battle Speed and Status (slow, normal, Haste).
    
    =======
    ATB Bar
    =======
    Although nothing changes visually, the length of a character's ATB bar is
    equal to:
    
     Length = ((60 - Spd) * 160)
    
    Every tick, the bar is increased by the following:
    
      +8  (slowest Battle Speed)
      +10 (medium Battle Speed)
      +14 (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    Slow has the effect of reducing the rate the ATB bar increases by 1/3. This
    means under Slow, the ATB bar fills by the following every tick:
    
       +5 (slowest Battle Speed)
       +6 (medium Battle Speed)
       +9 (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    Haste has the effect of increasing the rate the ATB bar increases by 50%. This
    means under Haste, the ATB bar fills by the following every tick:
    
      +12 (slowest Battle Speed)
      +15 (medium Battle Speed)
      +21 (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    
    ============
    Starting ATB
    ============
    At the start of a battle, your ATB bar is randomly filled based on:
    
      Rnd MOD ([Rnd / ATB lenght] * ATB length)
    
    Notes:
      The same random number is used in both parts of the formula.
    
    ===============================================================================
    [2.0]                            RUNNING AWAY
    ===============================================================================
    As long as you are holding L1 + R1, your party attempts to run away from the
    current battle (cannot run away from bosses). Your chance of running away is
    affected by party's average level (KO included) and the average of the enemy
    levels (dead monsters not included).
    
    =============
    Escape Chance
    =============
      Chance = [Party Lvl Avg * [200 / Enemy Lvl Avg] / 16]
    
    After that, a random number is used to determine if you run away:
    
      Rnd MOD 100 < Chance, party escapes
    
    Notes:
      This check is performed once per second for as long as you hold L1 + R1.
      You can only escape during the time the enemies ATB bars are filling.
    
    ===============================================================================
    [3.0]                           ATTACK COMMAND
    ===============================================================================
    This section deals with the Attack Command. Here you will find information on
    Add Status, Counter, Critical Hit, Hit/Evasion and damage calculation.
    
    ===============
    Damage Formulas
    ===============
    There are 6 different formulas used to determine basic Physical attack damage
    based on what Weapon you have equipped or if the Enemy is attacking:
    
    ------------
    Enemy Attack
    ------------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = Str + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 4] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    
    ----------------
    Standard Weapons
    ----------------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = Str + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus 
    
    Used by Dagger, Sword, Staff, Rod, Spear, Claw, Flute.
    
    
    --------------
    Save The Queen
    --------------
      Base   = (Atk + Lvl) - Def
      Bonus  = Str + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    
    ----------------------------
    Thief Swords + Knight Swords
    ----------------------------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = [(Str + Spr) / 2] + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    
    --------------
    Hammer + Forks
    --------------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = ((Rnd MOD (1 + Str - 1)) + 1) + Rnd MOD [(Lvl + Str) / 8]
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    
    -------
    Rackets
    -------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = [(Str + Spd) / 2] + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    
    ============
    Critical Hit
    ============
    Your chance of a Critical Hit with the Attack Command is based on Spirit:
    
      Rnd MOD [Spr / 4] > Rnd MOD 100, attack will critical
    
    
    ===========
    Hit/Evasion
    ===========
    When a party member or monster is selected as the attack target of a Physical
    attack, two checks are performed that decide if the attack will hit or miss.
    
      Check 1: Rnd MOD 100 >= 100, attack misses
      Check 2: Rnd MOD 100 <  Target Evade, attack misses
    
    If Accuracy+ is equipped, neither check is performed. Attacks always hit.
    
    
    Check 1 is the attacker's accuracy, Check 2 is the target's evasion chance. If
    the attacker succeeds in Check 1, the attack "hits" and Check 2 is then
    performed to determine if the target will Evade this hit.
    
    Normally, the attacker will never fail Check 1 due to having a 100% accuracy
    by default. This is where Confuse, Darkness, Defend, Distract and Vanish get
    involved.
    
    If the attacker is under Confuse, Darkness or the target is using Defend, has
    Distract equipped, the attacker's accuracy is reduced by 50%. Check 1 then
    becomes:
    
      Check 1: Rnd MOD 100 >= 50, attack misses
    
    These conditions stack, so if two of the above conditions are in effect for
    example, Check 1 becomes:
    
      Check 1: Rnd MOD 100 >= 25, attack misses
    
    If the target is under Vanish, the attacker's accuracy is reduced to 0. Check 1
    then becomes:
    
      Check 1: Rnd MOD 100 >= 0, attack misses
    
    
    =======
    Counter
    =======
    If you have the Counter ability equipped, your chance to Counter with the
    Attack Command when hit by an enemy Physical attack is:
    
      Spr >= Rnd MOD 100, you Counter
    
    If Eye 4 Eye is equipped, this becomes:
    
      (Spr * 2) >= Rnd MOD 100, you counter
    
    
    ==========
    Add Status
    ==========
    If you have the Add Status ability equipped, you have a chance of inflicting
    the Added Status of the weapon you have equipped when using the Attack Command.
    Not all weapons have an Added Status and even some that do (Thief Swords) do
    not work with Add Status.
    
    Your chance of inflicting an Added Status is:
    
      Add Status Accuracy > Rnd MOD 100, Added Status is inflicted
    
    ----------------------

    ===============================================================================
    [4.0]                       DAMAGE ALTERATIONS
    ===============================================================================
    When using the Attack command, Elemental Spells or Abilities, damage can
    vary greatly depending on enemy weaknesses and whether you are using support
    abilities like MP Attack, Reflect x2, or Killer abilities etc.
    
    ==================
    Elemental Weakness
    ==================
    When using an Attack or Spell which has an element, your damage bonus can get
    an increase or decrease depending on the target resistances.
    
    Normal : Bonus is unaffected
    Weak   : Bonus is increased by 50%
    Half   : Bonus is reduced by 50%
    Neutral: Take 0 damage (Guard)
    Absorb : Absorbs all damage (Defence/Magic Defence is ignored)
    
    
    ==============
    Attack Command
    ==============
    When using the Attack Command, your damage bonus can get an increase or
    decrease depending on certain conditions. These conditions are applied in a
    certain order:
    
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if using a Killer ability
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if using MP Attack
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if you are in Trance
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if you are under Berserk
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if the target is Back Attacked (apply if attacking own party)
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if the target is under Sleep
    [Bonus * 1.5]  if the target is under Mini
    (Bonus * 2)    if the hit is a Critical
    
    [Bonus / 2]   if you are in the Back Row (ignore if attacking own party)
    [Bonus / 2]   if the target is under Protect
    
    [Bonus * 1.5] if the target is weak to the element of your weapon
    [Bonus * 1.5] if you are wearing an Elem-Atk raising item
    
    [Bonus / 2]   if the target halves the element of your weapon
    (Bonus = 1)   if you are under Mini
    
    
    ==============
    Ipsen's Castle
    ==============
    When in Ipsen's Castle your stronger weapons do lower damage than your weaker
    weapons. This is because in Ipsen's Castle the base part of the damage formula
    when using the Attack Command is altered to:
    
      Base = (60 - Atk) - Def
    
    
    ============
    Magic Spells
    ============
    When using Magic Spells, your damage bonus can get an increase or decrease
    depending on certain conditions. These conditions are applied in a certain
    order:
    
    (Bonus * 2)   if using Reflect x2
    
    [Bonus / 2]   if you multi target the Spell
    [Bonus / 2]   If you are under Mini
    [Bonus / 2]   if the target is under Shell
    
    [Bonus * 1.5] if the target is weak to the element of your Spell
    [Bonus * 1.5] if you are wearing an Elem-Atk raising item
    
    [Bonus / 2]   if the target halves the element of your Spell
    
    
    =======
    Reflect
    =======
    If your entire party is under Reflect and you cast a spell on all party
    members, the spell will be reflected up to four times on to a random enemy.
    (only one animation is played though).
    
    If there is only one enemy in battle, it will take all four hits and your
    damage bonus won't be halved. If there are multiple enemies though, your
    damage bonus is halved and since reflected spells choose a random enemy, each
    enemy can be hit a different amount of times.
    
    Example, you face a group of 3 Mandragoras:
    
    1st Mandragora: 1 Hit               1st Mandragora: 3 Hit
    2nd Mandragora: 1 Hit               2nd Mandragora: 1 Hit
    3rd Mandragora: 2 Hit               3rd Mandragora: 0 Hit (Miss)
    
    1st Mandragora: 2 Hit               1st Mandragora: 4 Hit
    2nd Mandraogra: 2 Hit               2nd Mandragora: 0 Hit (Miss)
    3rd Mandraogra: 0 Hit (Miss)        3rd Mandragora: 0 Hit (Miss)
    
    This basically means a spell reflected off all party members can do up to four
    times normal damage to an enemy.
    
    ===============================================================================
    [5.0]                            TRANCE
    ===============================================================================
    When you take damage your Trance gauge fills. When your Trance gauge is full
    you enter Trance gaining new abilities as well as getting a 50% increase to
    your Physical damage Bonus. You are also cleared of all negative status effects
    when you enter Trance.
    
    ============
    Trance Gauge
    ============
    The Trance gauge ranges from 0 (empty) to 255 (full). Every time you take
    damage, this is filled by:
    
      Rnd MOD Spr
    
      or 
    
      Spr (if High Tide is equipped)
    
    Every turn you take in Trance reduces the gauge and when it becomes empty you
    revert back to normal.
    
      Deduction Rate = ([(300 - Lvl) / Spr] * 10) MOD 256
    
    
    ===============
    Zidane's Trance
    ===============
    Zidane's Skill command becomes Dyne. Each of Zidane's Skills now change to a
    specific Dyne. All Dynes are Physical attacks that target either one or all
    enemies in battle.
    
    Damage Formula:
    ---------------
      Base   = Dyne Power - Def
      Bonus  = Str + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Str) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * [Bonus * 1.5]
    
    Notes:
      Bonus is halved by Protect
      Bonus is reduced to 1 whilst under Mini.
    
    Skill/Dyne/Power:
    -----------------
    Flee          = Free Energy     = [(Atk * 15) / 10]
    Detect        = Tidal Flame     = [(Atk * 15) / 10]
    What's That!? = Scoop Art       = Atk * 2
    Soul Blade    = Shift Break     = Atk * 2
    Annoy         = Stella Circle 5 = [(Atk Pwr * 25) / 10]
    Sacrifice     = Meo Twister     = [(Atk Pwr * 25) / 10] 
    Lucky Seven   = Solution 9      = Atk * 3
    Thievery      = Grand Lethal    = Atk * 4
    
    
    ================
    Steiner's Trance
    ================
    Steiner's Attack command becomes Trance Attack. When using the Attack command
    instead of the standard 50% increase to his Physical bonus, Steiner gains a
    300% increase. Exception to this is when using the Blood Sword, Steiner only
    gets the normal 50% increase when using it.
    
    
    =============
    Vivi's Trance
    =============
    Vivi's Black command becomes Dbl Blk. Vivi can now cast two Black Magic spells
    in a row.
    
    
    ===============
    Dagger's Trance
    ===============
    Dagger's Summon command becomes Eidolon. A summon used in Trance will now
    randomly cast itself for no MP cost. These summons however are much weaker than
    when normally cast and though these summons only show the half animation, their
    damage is not reduced by a third.
    
    Power:
    ------
    Ramuh    : 31 Atk Pwr      Atomos : Damage = [(16 * Target Max HP) / 100]
    Leviathan: 63 Atk Pwr      Odin   : 49 Atk Pwr
    Ifrit    : 37 Atk Pwr      Bahamut: 77 Atk Pwr
    Shiva    : 34 Atk Pwr      Ark    : 87 Atk Pwr
    
    
    ================
    Amarant's Trance
    ================
    Amarant's Flair command becomes Elan. Amarant can now cast Flair commands on
    all enemies or all party members.
    
    
    ==============
    Freya's Trance
    ==============
    Freya's Jump command becomes Trance Jump. Freya will now stay in the air until
    her Trance gauge runs out and attack all enemies in battle instead of just one.
    
    Damage Formula:
    ---------------
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = ((Rnd MOD (1 + Str - 3)) + 3) + Rnd MOD [(Lvl + Str) / 8]
      Damage = Base * [Bonus * 1.5]
    
    If High Jump is equipped:
    
      Base   = Atk - Def
      Bonus  = ((Rnd MOD (1 + Str - 2)) + 2) + Rnd MOD [(Lvl + Str) / 8]
      Damage = Base * (Bonus * 2)
    
    Notes:
      Final Damage is divided by the number of targets in battle.
      Bonus is halved by Protect
      Bonus is reduced to 1 whilst under Mini.
    
    
    ==============
    Quina's Trance
    ==============
    Quina's Eat command becomes Cook. Quina can now learn a Blue Magic when the
    enemy has 50% or less of its HP remaining instead of 25%.
    
    
    =============
    Eiko's Trance
    =============
    Eiko's White command becomes Dbl Wht. Eiko can now cast two White Magic spells
    in a row.
    
    ===============================================================================
    [6.0]                            STEAL
    ===============================================================================
    Steal allows you to steal up to four items from an enemy. There are a total of
    3 steps to Steal:
    
    ======
    Step 1
    ======
    Steal has to successfully hit the target.
    
      Atk = Rnd MOD (Lvl + Spr)
      Def = Rnd MOD (Enemy Lvl)
    
    If Atk is equal or greater than Def, Steal is a success and moves to Step 2.
    This step can be ignored if Bandit is equipped: Bandit causes any Steal to
    have a 100% success rate.
    
    
    ======
    Step 2
    ======
    Checks to see if you get an item, they're 4 possible slots to choose from.
    
      Rare     :   1/256
      Semi-Rare:  16/256
      Uncommon :  64/256
      Common   : 256/256
    
    Slots are checked from Rare to Common. If you fail to get the item in the
    Rare slot it moves down to Semi-Rare, fail to get the item in the Semi-Rare
    slot it moves down to Uncommon, fail to get the item in Uncommon slot and 
    you'll get what ever item is in the Common slot.
    
    If you get a slot that has no item or you already stole it, Steal will fail.
    
    If you equip Master Thief, the Rare and Semi-Rare slots are changed from 1/256
    and 16/256 to 32/256. Steal will also now ignore empty slots.
    
    If you succeed in getting an item, Steal moves to Step 3.
    
    
    ======
    Step 3
    ======
    This Step deals with Mug and Steal Gil.
    
      Mug Damage = Rnd MOD [Zidane's Lvl * Target Lvl / 2]
    
      Stolen Gil = Rnd MOD [Zidane's Lvl * Target Lvl / 4] + 1
    
    ===============================================================================
    [7.0]                            SKILLS
    ===============================================================================
    Skills range from dealing damage, casting status effects to listing enemy
    Steal items as well as helping to escape from battle quicker.
    
    ====
    Flee
    ====
    Allows you to escape from a non boss battle with a 100% success rate.
    
    Notes:
      You lose Gil equal to 10% of the Gil held by the opponents.
    
    
    ======

    [9.0]                          SWORD MAGIC

    Sword Magic are Physical attacks that Steiner can only use if Vivi is the
    same party. Sword Magic raises Steiner's equipped weapons attack power and
    gives it the element (if it has one) of the Spell used by Vivi.

    Bio
    ===
    A non-elemental attack to one or all enemies with a chance of inflicting the
    Poison status. The chance of Bio inflicting Poison is:
    
      20 > Rnd MOD 100, Poison is inflicted
    
    
    ====
    Demi
    ====
    Reduces the targets HP by a percentage. Unlike most Magic, damage is not
    affected if you multi target the Spell.
    
      Damage = [(30 * Target Max HP) / 100]

      40% Accuracy.
      Does not work on bosses.

      Base   = Spell Power
      Bonus  = 1 ... (Lvl + Mag) - 1
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    The chance of Comet and Meteor hitting are as follows:
    
      Comet : 171 > Rnd MOD 256, Comet hits
      Meteor: ([Lvl / 2] + Spr) >= Rnd MOD 100, Meteor hits
    
    ===============================================================================
    [11.0]                        STATUS EFFECTS
    ===============================================================================
    All characters can inflict some sort of Status Effect whether it be positive
    or negative. While positive Status Effects always succeed, negative Status
    Effects can fail to hit the target. Remember, if all characters are inflicted
    with KO, Petrify, Stop or Venom, Game Over is declared.
    
    ========================
    Status Effect Infliction
    ========================
    Your chance of inflicting a Status Effect is equal to:
    
      Chance = Status Accuracy + Lvl + [Mag / 4] - Target Level
    
    After that, two random numbers are used to determine if the spell will hit:
    
      Check 1: Rnd MOD 100 >= Chance, attack misses
      Check 2: Rnd MOD 100 <  Target Magic Evade, attack misses

    ======================
    Status Effect Duration
    ======================
    Like the ATB bar, Status Effect duration decreases by a rate based on Battle
    Speed and Status (slow, normal, haste). The duration of a Status Effect is
    equal to:
    
      Protect        : Spirit * 360 
      Shell          : Spirit * 360  
      Regen          : Spirit * 360 
      Reflect        : Spirit * 320  
      Haste          : Spirit * 320 
      Float          : Spirit * 240 
      Vanish         : Spirit * 240
      Slow           : (60 - Spirit) * 320 
      Poison         : (60 - Spirit) * 240 
      Sleep          : (60 - Spirit) * 200
      Doom           : (60 - Spirit) * 200
      Gradual Petrify: (60 - Spirit) * 200
      Freeze         : (60 - Spirit) * 160
      Heat           : (60 - Spirit) * 160
    
    Normally, Status Effect duration will decrease by the following every 4th
    tick:
    
      -8  (slowest Battle Speed)
      -10 (normal Battle Speed)
      -14 (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    Under Slow, Status Effect duration will decrease by the following every 4th
    tick:
    
      -5  (slowest Battle Speed)
      -6  (medium Battle Speed)
      -9  (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    Under Haste, Status Effect duration will decrease by the following every 4th
    tick:
    
      -12 (slowest Battle Speed)
      -15 (medium Battle Speed)
      -21 (fastest Battle Speed)
    
    --------------------
    Regen, Poison, Venom
    --------------------
    For these Status Effects, a secondard hit timer is used to determine when they
    add or subtract HP from a character. This hit timer follows the same rate of
    deduction as the spell duration.
    
    Regen : (60 - Spirit) * 40
    Poison: Spirit * 40
    Venom : Spirit * 80

    [12.0]                         WHITE MAGIC
    ===============================================================================
    White Magic mostly concentrates on healing spells and positive status effects.
    It also contains a few negative status effects as well as an attack magic.
    
    ==============
    Damage Formula
    ==============
    Holy follows the same damage formula as Vivi's normal Black Magic. 
    
      Base   = Spell Power - Mag Def
      Bonus  = Mag + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Mag) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    Cure, Cura, and Curaga are slightly different as they ignore Magic Defence.
    
      Base        = Spell Power
      Bonus       = Mag + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Mag) / 8] + 1)
      HP Restored = Base * Bonus
    
    Notes:
      HP Restored = Base * [Bonus * 1.5] if Concentrate is equipped.

    [13.0]                         SUMMON MAGIC
    ===============================================================================
    Eidolon attack power depends on the amount of Jewels in your inventory that
    correspond to that Summon. Eidolons mostly do damage but one casts positive
    status effects on the party whilst another can revive characters from KO.
    
    ================
    Summon Animation
    ================
    There are two animations you can get when you use a summon, Full and Half. The
    first time you use a summon you get the full animation. After that, you have a
    33% or 10% chance to get the full animation again based on the following.
    
    If MP < (Summon MP Cost * 2), your chance of getting the full animation is:
    
      Rnd MOD 256 >= 170, use full animation
    
    Otherwise, your chance of getting the full animation is:
    
      Rnd MOD 256 >= 230, use full animation
    
    Notes:
      Equip Boost to have a 100% chance of getting the full animation.
      MP refers to the MP you have before the cost is subtracted.
      The value used for Summon MP Cost is not affected by Half MP.
      
    
    ==============
    Damage Formula
    ==============
    The animation length you get when you cast a summon affects the damage they
    do. The full animation does maximum damage except for the full animation you
    get the first time you use a summon (only does half animation damage). The
    half animation reduces the damage a summon does by 1/3.
    
      Base   = Eidolon Power - Mag Def
      Bonus  = Mag + Rnd MOD ([(Lvl + Mag) / 8] + 1)
      Damage = Base * Bonus
    
    Notes:
      Damage = [((Base * Bonus) * 2) / 3] if the half animation is shown.

    ======
    Atomos
    ======
    Atomos causes damage equal to a percentage based on its Attack power. Since
    it's a Demi based summon, Atomos will not work on bosses.
    
    Full Animation:
      Damage = [((30 + Amethyst) * Target Max HP) / 100]
    
    Half Animation:
      Damage = [[(((30 + Amethyst) * Target Max HP) / 100] * 2) / 3]
    
    
    ====
    Odin
    ====
    When summoned, Odin either causes Death to the enemy or it misses. The chance
    of Odin causing Death is equal to:
    
      Chance = [Ore / 2] + Lvl + [Mag / 4] - Target Lvl
    
    If the support ability Odin's Sword is equipped, Odin will now do Non-Elemental
    damage if he fails to cause Death. The strength of this ability is 145 - Ore.
    
    
    =========
    Carbuncle
    =========
    This Summon does no damage but instead inflicts a positive status effect on
    your entire party. Normally the status effect Carbuncle inflicts is Reflect,
    however this can be changed by equipping Eiko with certain Add-Ons:
    
      --       : Ruby Light    = Reflect (+ Protect if full animation)
      Emerald  : Emerald Light = Haste   (+ Protect if full animation)
      Diamond  : Diamond Light = Vanish  (+ Protect if full animation)
      Moonstone: Pearl Light   = Shell   (+ Protect if full animation)
    
    
    =======
    Phoenix
    =======
    When summoned Phoenix causes Fire element damage to all enemies. On top of that
    Phoenix also revives all KO'd party members and restores their HP equal to:
    
      [((Target Spr + 30) * Target Max HP) / 100]
    
    Notes:
      HP restored is doubled if Concentrate is equipped.
    
    If Eiko is in your party, there is a chance Phoenix will automatically revive
    your party if they are all KO'd. The chance of this happening is equal to:
    
      [(# of Phoenix Pinions / 256) * 100]
    
    This automatic Rebirth Flame has a different animation than normal. It also
    deals no damage to the enemy and uses no MP.
