Additional actions, colloquially known as cross-class skills, are abilities in Final Fantasy XIV. They are abilities that can be used by multiple disciplines, but each character only has a limited amount of slots available, forcing players to choose which actions best suit their playstyle.

Additional actions are at present only available in PvP and to Disciples of the Land. They were once more widespread, but Disciple of War and Magic additional actions were phased out in favor of role actions and PvP-exclusive actions in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, while Disciple of the Hand actions were removed in patch 5.1 and became core class skills.

Additional PvP actions[]

These actions are only available during PvP and are unique to each role. Only two can be set at any given time, so players must choose abilities which complement their combat strategy. As with other PvP actions, characters gain access to all additional PvP actions for their role as soon as they reach level 30.

Disciple of War and Magic additional actions[]

Prior to the release of Stormblood, Disciples of War and Magic had access to additional actions outside of PvP, as each class learned a handful of abilities that could then be used by other disciplines. With the release of Stormblood, additional actions for Disciples of War and Magic were replaced by role actions, while the current additional PvP action system was introduced to fill their role in PvP.

Prior to their removal, classes would unlock additional action slots every 5 levels and jobs every 10 levels, reaching a maximum of 10 and 5 slots respectively at level 50. Classes also had access to a greater variety of additional actions than jobs. This would grant classes greater versatility, though this rarely proved enough to justify their use over the more specialized jobs. Additional actions also frequently weren't as powerful when used by their non-native disciplines, as their source disciplines often had traits augmenting the action that did not carry over to other disciplines.

Disciple of the Hand additional actions[]

As with other classes, Disciples of the Hand gained additional action slots every five levels up to level 50 for a maximum of 10. They all granted and had access to a vast array of abilities to improve their crafting, and it was common for players to level all crafting disciplines to gain access to these skills. They also had access to the gatherer surveying skills, though crafters would rarely if ever find themselves in the field to utilize them.

A handful of crafting additional actions were removed in patch 5.0 before Disciples of the Hand lost access to additional actions entirely in patch 5.1 with the overhaul of the crafting system. Many additional actions were rolled into the crafting disciplines as class actions instead, being available by default without the need for slots or leveling other disciplines.
