General Information

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. Ranged DPS limit breaks deal devastating damage in a straight line. Healer limit breaks restore HP and MP to the entire party.

All classes and jobs of a given role will have the same level one and two limit breaks, while level three limit breaks are exclusive to 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.
