I'm playing Final Fantasy II on the iPhone. During the combat phase, my characters often display a 'X'Hit, where 'X' is a number like 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. When I went to Altair to have the combat system explained to me, there was no explanation. What do these numbers mean?
Final Fantasy 2(j) has an unusual (for a Final Fantasy game) way of dealing with how your party does damage.
Most Final Fantasy games give your characters a very high percentage chance to hit. Not so in FF2 - in FF2, you take a number of swings at the enemy, and some of those connect and some do not. This is modified by a few things, chiefly:
When you see this "XHit" the game is letting you know how many of your characters hits connected, after all the various modifiers are taken into account. Your damage will range accordingly.
