Appearances[edit | edit source]
Daze is a status ailment that prevents the victim from taking any action. Similar to Pain and Fog, Daze will cancel pending actions, and the ATB gauge will also pause. The status lasts for a short time and can be removed by being damaged; the attack that removes Daze will deal double the damage it normally does. If this attack consists of multiple hits, such as Sazh's Blitz, all hits will deal double damage. Daze allows an attack to deal up to 199,998 damage without a Genji Glove equipped. The effects of healing abilities like Cure will also be doubled, without removing the status ailment. Saboteurs are capable of inflicting this status ailment. The party leader can still use Techniques and Items under Daze.
AI-controlled Commandos won't attack a Dazed enemy as long as there are other un-Dazed enemies on the field. If all enemies are Dazed, the AI -controlled Commandos will act as normal and split the targets up between them. AI-controlled Ravagers will only target a Dazed enemy if the player targets it and there is no Commando or there is no other target. They will still use area attacks that can hit Dazed targets as normal.
