- "Restore HP with healing herbs."
|Spring is a Mercury Djinni found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and is numerically the tenth Mercury Djinni in the games' official Djinni ordering and thus the third numbered Mercury Djinni of The Lost Age.|
Spring is a Djinni that is automatically handed to you as you play through the game, being present on Piers as soon as he joins your party in the town of Kibombo somewhat early on in The Lost Age. Spring is one of three Djinn in The Lost Age - the others being Echo and another Mercury Djinni in Piers' possession, Shade - that is impossible not to obtain.
In Dark Dawn, Spring is hiding in Harun Village in a cave. First, Crush the blocking boulder, then push the logs around until you can reach this Djinn. No need to fight once you meet up.
When Set, it increases base HP by 11 and base PP by 5.
When Spring's battle effect is used, a targeted Adept on the player's side has their HP cured by an amount equal to 70% of their maximum HP. It is almost identical to the Mercury Djinni Fizz from the first game, only a little stronger.
While appearing to be easily understandable and practical as a battle option, it is not very useful as an ability in practice because of the abundance of easier-to-use and more direct healing items and Psynergy available. And while it's technically one of the only effects available to the party that cures HP based on maximum HP meter - thus making it technically better over the course of the game as the Adepts gain more HP - the items and Psynergy become better and more practical as well. There will be cases where using it will not cure as much as a simple usage of a Psynergy from the Ply Psynergy series, and the fact it saves PP that would have been spent on Ply spells otherwise does not seem enough of an advantage to make up for it. Neither does the fact that Spring is technically superior by ten percentage points to the previous game's Mercury Djinni Fizz, which would return along with Isaac's party when they join Felix's party late in The Lost Age.
A spring is a small release of water from the Earth. Spring may also refer to the season, which is known for having much rain and plantlife. This might explain why Spring's description refers to "healing herbs".
