Blessed Breath is a light-based breath attack that emits a burst of shining light at enemies. Previously, it lacked a proper skill name akin to Scorch, Freezing Blizzard, etc, and was referred to by its text description when used by enemies. Depending on the game, it inflicts either lightning or light-elemental damage.
Blessed Breath is an enemy-only skill that inflicts light-elemental damage to the entire party. When used, the in-game text states that the user "exhales a cloud of blinding light". The amount of damage inflicted is dependent on the monster using it:
- The grotto boss battle
Blessed Breath inflicts Light-based breath damage in a fan-shaped area in front of the user, the damage being dependent on the user's level. It can be used by Hybirds, Polka dot dragons, Moai minstrels, Frou-frous when they are enraged, Nemean, and Archimaera.
Blinding flames are used by the Noble dragons, Labradrakes, and Mechan-o'-wyrms, dealing over 100 damage if unprotected. Light-based attacks share the same element as the Bang line of spells, so anything that reduces damage from those spells will dim the flames.
Blessed Breath can be learned by Abracadabrador at level 20 and Prism peacock at level 36, costing 27 MP to use. It inflicts moderate Zap-type breath damage on all enemies in a range of three squares in front of the user. It can also be taught to any unit by using an ability scroll, which is received as a reward for completing Level 2 of the Dragon Fest's Lightning Den or from the seventh stage of Ramia's Battle Road during the True Dragon Quest III event.
