The remastered version of Final Fantasy V was launched earlier this month and just received its second update. This update implemented certain battle adjustments and fixed plenty of bugs.

Battle Adjustments

The developers made some changes to certain class abilities. Hide, an ability available to the Bard class has been changed. For those who do not know, this ability when cast on all party members, will allow them to escape the battle unscathed.

In the event that escaping is not possible, Hide now works indefinitely. This means that you can continue to avoid damage and stay alive, so long as at least one of your characters remains hidden and does not engage.

In addition, the status ailment resistance of some monsters has been decreased. For example, making them sleep is a bit easier to do now than before.

Update Changelog

  • The ability "Cover" has been altered so it now activates when in critical condition
  • In battles that cannot be escaped from, the ability "Hide" has been changed so it continues, even when all characters other than the hidden character are wiped out

  • There was a place on the sea at the beginning of the game where unintended battle encounters would occur
