Freezing Rain

Hack of Secret of Mana

Description:

This hack replaces the sprite’s Energy Absorb spell with a new damage-dealing spell called Freezing Rain. What distinguishes Freezing Rain from other damage-dealing spells is that it is the only damage-dealing spell that costs 1MP, but is fairly weak at 16 spell power. Nevertheless, this should come in handy in a range of situations, such as if you only have 1MP left and want to drain all your MP before restoring it with a Faerie Walnut or something.

A side effect of this hack is that since the Energy Absorb spell has been overwritten, some enemies which cast it will now cast a range of other spells instead to keep them from being made into easier fights since Freezing Rain does less damage than Energy Absorb did.

Complete list of enemies that will no longer cast Energy Absorb:

  • Silktail will now cast Freezing Rain.
  • Specter will now cast MP Absorb.
  • Mystic Book will now cast MP Absorb.
  • Trap Flower will now cast Sleep Flower more often than before.
  • Kimono Wizard will now cast Acid Storm.
  • Ghost will now cast MP Absorb.
  • Tusnami will now cast Freezing Rain.
  • Bosses that cast Energy Absorb will now cast MP Absorb (e.g. the Vampire family of bosses).

Note: To combine this with Proper-caser, apply Proper-caser and this hack first, then apply the companion Proper-caser compatibility hack last.
