"Crushes target enemy"
Crush sends a speck of light into the air, which then descends on the target enemy in a giant stone fist.
Crush is a mid-powered formula, useful throughout Antiqua for having much higher power than the formulas learned in Prehistoria, and ingredients for it are readily available from Blimp. However, later in the game its usefulness is harmed by the fact only Blimp sells the needed Limestone to cast Crush, and the acquisition of other formulas with greater damage.
Crush is also notable for an exploit that allows the player to rapidly deal massive damage with it. If the player switches control to the Dog, they can rapidly cast Crush in succession by opening the Hero's menu while the casting animation for Crush is executing. Several casts of Crush can be stacked this way, allowing for several hundred and even over a thousand damage.
Lowest prices per region for each casting:
- It is a relatively cheap alchemy spell, costing only 36 Jewels per cast (when buying from Blimp)
- Although Crush is cast like a missile-type formula, it always has the same delay on dealing its damage. Whereas for Flash, Hard Ball, Fireball and Flare, this is not the case.
- It is possible to skip meeting up with Blimp and receiving Crush, by performing a series of exploits and forcing the dog on the screen to return to the Hero.
Note: Damage after applying Magic DEF will cap at 999.
