"Tornado attacks all enemies and party"

Howlnado is a recurring Wind spell in Grandia. It often appears as the powerful Wind-elemental spell and attacks all enemies.



Howlnado is a Level 3 magic spell that is learned when a characters Wind level reaches level 23. Howlnado deals heavy Wind-elemental damage to all enemies and costs 8MP to use. Howlnado can be cast by Great Susano-o and Layelah.

Besides dealing damage, Howlnado will also lift up all units besides the caster and some immobile bosses, and randomly drop them across the field. This will not interrupt allies actions, however. This shuffling aspect makes targeting enemies with area of effect spells difficult, but it can be used to redistribute allies to prevent enemy AoEs from hitting everyone, putting some distance between physically attacking enemies and their target, as well as cancelling allies' recovery time if they were recently hit (as they will still instantly pick themselves up regardless of what state they were in before).
