An effect of 100% Slow will double a weapon delay value. For Example: a weapon with a delay of 509 normally takes about 8.5 Seconds before an attack can be initiated. With +100% slow, this delay would be treated as 1018, or 17 seconds before an attack would occur.

Slow II Will overwrite the effects of Ninjutsu spell Hojo: Ni


  • Slow II (Increases delay between attacks)
