Slow 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:
- Increase GCD
- Increase cast-time of magic spells
- Increase delay between auto-attacks
- Decrease the rate that the ATB gauge recharges
- Decrease the speed of casting and/or and character animations
Slow could be acquired in different ways depending on the game. In Final Fantasy VII, players gained the spell after leveling the Time Materia to Level 2. In Final Fantasy VIII, the spell could be drawn from certain enemies, or synthesized from certain items.
