Description Half time between turns for an ally.

Haste (Tech) (ヘイスト heisuto?) is Marle's 6th-level Tech. Doubling an ally's speed, Marle learns Haste after acquiring 250 Tech Points. While Haste is a useful Tech, equipping the Haste Helm provides a single ally with a permanent speed boost, equivalent to the boost granted by Haste, until unequipped.

Description[edit]

When cast, Marle holds her hands together and sends a batch of sparkles into the air. Extending her hands out toward the target, a tickling clock appears above their head. While Haste is in effect, the afflicted character glows red.

Name Origin[edit]

In English, Haste means a rapidity of motion. Since this Tech increases a character's speed, causing the wait time between attacks to reduce by half, this name is appropriate. The spell is also probably intended to be a reference to the spell of the same name from the Final Fantasy series.
