Limit Break

From Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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 limit breaks reduce the damage taken for the entire party for a short time. Melee physical DPS limit breaks deal a massive amount damage to a single target. Caster DPS limit breaks deal devastating area of effect damage. Healer limit breaks restore HP and MP to the entire party.

As of patch 3.0, the limit break for ranged physical DPS has been changed from sharing the Healer limit break to an attack to all targets in a straight line before the caster. Furthermore, level three limit breaks can now only be used by jobs.

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.
