Disable, also known as Don't Act (ドンアクト (or ドンアク), Don Akuto (Don Aku as a spell)?), is a recurring status effect, exclusive to games set in Ivalice. This status prevents the affected character from performing any action, meaning they can only move.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The character is unable to act. Remove with a Remedy.
Disable renders a unit unable to take any action. It is healed by Penelo's Esunaga or Fran's Ward of the Wood. The player can inflict the status on opponents with Penelo's Hypnotic Dance, Balthier's Maim or Bahamut's Mega Flare.
Disable (Don't Act in the original version) makes a unit unable to act, evade, or use reaction abilities, including Blade Grasp and Abandon. At the end of an AT, a unit with Don't Act will have his CT decremented as if he had acted. It can be cured by Choco Esuna, Esuna, Remedy, Purification and Dragon's Gift. Disable lasts for 24 ticks.
Disable is caused by the Mystic's spell, Hesitation, as well as the Templar's Spellblade ability of the same name. The Arm Shot ability of the unique classes Machinist and Sky Pirate inflicts the status as well, whose hit-rate is dependent on the user's Speed stat. Orran can also inflict Disable with his Celestial Stasis ability.
Disable lasts until after the afflicted unit has taken three turns. It can be inflicted by an Archer's Aim: Arm, an Elementalist's Fire Whip, and a Juggler's Dagger. Cid can also Disable with the Bind A-ability in his job, Judgemaster.
Prevents all actions apart from movement.
