I've been trying to find a reference to the haste spell in Final Fantasy 13-2 but I can't find it anywhere. It doesn't seem to appear on any of the character spells for Synergist, does it appear on any of the monsters?

    I haven't gotten a Synergist yet in 13-2, but in FF13 Haste was definitely a Synergist spell (a pretty high level one as I recall).

  • I don't think there's a castable Haste nor are there +damage buffs. Maybe they are on the monsters? I think you're suppose to rely on weapons/accessories that boost your ATB rate and/or give Auto-Haste. Seems kinda funny that Sarah and Noel can time travel, but they can't cast Haste...

Haste, as it existed in Final Fantasy XIII, doesn't exist in Final Fantasy XIII-2. Instead, the Mog clock is the primary source of haste: if you get a "Great!" rating, you'll get a preemptive strike and start the battle with haste.

There's also a commando auto-ability for monsters, Haste Feeder, that casts Haste on the monster automatically.

A number of weapons and accessories that increase the ATB rate:

  • Faerie's Bow, Rune Feather, Angel's Bow, Eurytos's Bow, and Indrajit for Serah
  • Rune Tooth, Sargantanas, Nomad's Machete, Orochi, and Romulus & Remus for Noel
  • Kaiser Knuckles line of accessories

The Hermes Sandals line of accessories also casts Haste when critical.
