When using Status Reels, Wakka spins the slots, with three different symbols representing different types of status ailments. Matching three reels of the same symbol will launch an attack that hits all enemies, whereas matching two of the same symbol will affect only one random enemy. In both cases, the attack inflicts status ailments depending on the selected symbol. If there are no matches on any slot, a standard attack with increased power will be launched at a random enemy.
The Skull symbol inflicts Poison, as well as Sleep, Silence and Darkness for three rounds, the Down symbol inflicts Full Break, and the Egg-timer symbol inflicts Petrification, or if the enemy or enemies are immune, it delays their next turn considerably and inflicts Slow, if possible, to those with the haste status, thereby removing it.
