Elegy is a type of Enfeebling Song used by Bards. It inflicts an effect similar to Slow on the targeted enemy, increasing its attack delay and magic recast timers. (Refer to the Slow status effect page for more information.)
Three songs give this effect (only two are usable by players). As one of the types of Enfeebling Songs, their effects cannot be combined. They can coexist with March status effects on the same target, unlike Haste and Slow statuses which do not.
- The White Magic spell Erase will remove this effect. Note that Haste, although it will still take effect on a player with Elegy status, does nothing to remove this effect.
- Battlefield Elegy inflicts a base 25% Slow effect, Carnage Elegy inflicts a base 50%. Massacre Elegy inflicts a 100% Slow effect and is used only by certain high level Bard Notorious Monsters, it cannot be used by players.
- MND is known to enhance the potency of Slow spells, causing them to "slow" the target by a greater amount. CHR will only enhance the accuracy of Elegy, meaning that the target cannot be made any more "slow" by adding more CHR.
