Limit Breaks are group oriented ultimate abilities that can alter the outcome of a battle. They can be performed after charging up a limit break meter.

Limit Breaks are specific to each party role. Tank's limit breaks reduce the damage taken for the entire party for a short time. Damage Dealer's limit breaks deal a massive amount of single target. Caster's limit breaks deal devastating area of effect damage. Healer's limit breaks restore HP and MP to the entire party.

Limit Breaks are only usable in a party environment. There are 3 levels of limit breaks, the 1st level can be used in a party with 4 or more members, the 2nd level needs a full party of 8 members, the 3rd level requires a full raid of 24 players, with the exception of dungeons and trials: an additional bar is added at the start of the boss fight.
