Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age / FFXII: TZA - Game Guide and Walkthrough


Quickenings rely on a bar known as the Mist Gauge. Upon activating the Quickening skill, all normal gameplay stops and an animation will begin. The player will need to press a sequence of buttons. Once the sequence is completed, the player will then choose a Quickening based on the number of Mist Gauges used. The higher the number of Mist Gauges, the more damage the Quickening will do.

Tips for Quickenings

  • The common buttons used in a Quickening sequence are square, triangle, and X.
  • Follow the sequence until the blue bar depletes. Then press R2.
  • When you press R2, the command will shuffle and Mist Charge will activate.
  • Another gauge will fill once Mist Charge is activated, allowing you to perform a Quickening Chain.

The probability of a Quickening Chain is highly dependent on the number of people present.

#of Participants Probability
1 person 1/6
2 people 1/7
3 people 1/8

Once you activate the Quickening, you will have four seconds to complete the sequence. Completing the sequence allows you to recover 0.5 seconds before you move onto the next sequence.
