Description Grants Spd+3. At start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 25%, grants Atk/Spd+6 to unit during combat, and also, if unit initiates combat or foe initiates combat and uses magic or staff, reduces damage from foe's first attack by 40% and boosts unit's next attack by total damage reduced (by any source, including other skills). Resets at end of combat.


  • The stat increase that can be applied by Ginnungagap is considered a combat boost.
  • Magic refers to .
  • The damage-reduction is calculated after offensive Specials and skills that deal extra damage, such as Icon Class Red Sword.png Wo Dao+.
    • Percentage-based damage-reduction effects stack multiplicatively, unlike interactions related to the weapon-triangle, such as gem weapons and  Triangle Adept.
      • For example, if both Spurn 3.png Spurn 3 and Skilliconspecial.png Vital Astra activate, the maximum total damage-reduction is 58% instead of 70%, since the two skills reduce the damage to (1 − 40%) × (1 − 30%) = 42% of the original damage.
    • For more information, see Damage calculation.
  • Skilliconspecial.png Deadeye, Skilliconspecial.png Lethality, Skilliconspecial.png Sublime Heaven, and Skilliconspecial.png Twin Blades will neutralize Ginnungagap's damage-reduction effect.
  • When used with offensive Specials, Skilliconweapon.png Bow of Frelia, Icon Class Red Sword.png Lioness Blade, Icon Class Colorless Tome.png Thunderer Tome, and Icon Class Red Sword.png Lands Sword will neutralize Ginnungagap's damage-reduction effect.
  • Icon Class Colorless Tome.png Adroit War Tome and Icon Class Red Tome.png Þjálfi can reduce the damage-reduction of Ginnungagap by 50%.
  • If Ginnungagap triggers multiple times during combat, all reduced damage is accumulated up to the unit's next attack, and resets to 0 at the end of combat. If the unit cannot counterattack the damage boosting effect will not trigger.
  • The damage boosting effect of Ginnungagap ignores Def and Res, but can be reduced by damage reduction skills such as Skilliconspecial.png Pavise and Dragon Wall 3.png Dragon Wall 3, and status effects such as  Dodge.
  • Sources of percentage-based damage-reduction effects that stack multiplicatively with Ginnungagap's damage-reduction effect include allies' skills such as Domain of Ice.png Domain of Ice and Icon Class Colorless Staff.png Caduceus Staff. These skills will also count for Ginnungagap's damage boosting effect.
  • Skills such as Skilliconspecial.png Miracle and Icon Class Green Axe.png Hel's Reaper will also count as a source of damage-reduction, which will affect the calculation of the damage boosting effect = the total damage from the foe's damage (including calculations with specials) -1.
    • For example, if a foe triggering Skilliconspecial.png Glimmer deals 45 damage, and a skill such as Skilliconspecial.png Miracle or Icon Class Green Axe.png Hel's Reaper will be triggered by that foe's attack, the damage boost for the unit's next attack would be 44 damage.
