Category:FFXI Status Effects  

If your character's status changes, such as being poisoned in an enemy attack or using an ability to increase your attack power, it will be reported in your log window and an icon will appear at the top center of the screen. There are various icons used to indicate the different types of status effects. To view the details of a given icon, press the Δ button on the DUALSHOCK™ analog controller, the Y button on an Xbox 360 controller, the + key on your keyboard's numeric keypad, or f key on compact keyboard twice and move the cursor over the icon. An explanation of the icon will appear in the upper window. If a status effect wears off, it will be reported in your log window, and the icon will disappear from the top of the screen. -- FFXI Game Manual

Status effects are conditions that directly affect your character in-game, whether it be in a positive, negative, or completely neutral way. These status effects can be caused by monsters' abilities or spells during a battle. They can also be caused by spells, songs, or dice effects cast by fellow party members, as well as quests and items from NPCs in the game.

All status effect timers, except for Boost, pause whilst in dialogue with an NPC or a cutscene.

The three categories for status effects are as follows:
