XI FFXI Atma Status Atma is a beneficial status effect, category of key item, and game mechanic in Final Fantasy XI. It is exclusive to Abyssea. Atma take the form of permanent key items that are described as crystalline masses. They are obtained by defeating certain Abyssean Notorious Monsters, causing the monster's soul to crystallize and be awarded to all players in the Alliance that defeated it, or paying an Atma Fabricant NPC Cruor to have him synthesize a synthetic atma from the memories within your soul. Synthetic atma available are determined by what other accomplishments elsewhere in the game the player has attained--completing other storylines, defeating certain Notorious Monsters, beating Maat with all 15 original game and Rise of the Zilart jobs, gaining a high rank in a crafting guild, etc.

Once a player obtains a Lunar Abyssite permanent key item, they are eligible to pay an Atma Infusionist NPC a small fee of 100 cruor to 'infuse' them with one of their atmas of their choice, gaining the Atma status effect. This status effect gives a very powerful status enhancement dependent on what atma was infused. The Atma status stacks with itself up to three times—once per Lunar Abyssite the player has, and there are a total of three in the game. The same atma cannot be infused more than once at one time, however. Once infused, the Atma status lasts until the player talks to the infusionist again and asks them to remove it or the player leaves Abyssea.

Unusually, Pets gain the full effect of all their masters infused atma automatically without need for a separate infusion.

The most popular atma include:

  • Atma of the Apocalypse, gained from defeating Shinryu, is popular with all jobs because it offers Auto-Reraise, giving virtual immortality. The Triple Attack and Quick Magic are nice too.
  • Atma of the Razed Ruins raises Critical Hit rate and damage as well as giving a terrific +50 to DEX (raising Accuracy and further boosting Critical Hit Rate). Probably the single biggest permanent boost to melee damage.
  • Atma of the Voracious Violet also offers terrific bonuses for fighting characters: +50 STR, Double Attack, and 2 TP/Tick Regain.
  • Atma of the Gnarled Horn also offers a good bonus to Critical Hit Rate, and the best AGI bonus (+50) and even Counter.
  • Atma of the Minikin Monstrosity is a must-have for all mages in Abyssea, as it gives a whopping 10 MP/tick Refresh. Black Mages will also benefit as well from a terrific +50 INT and even a hefty chunk of Enmity.
  • Atma of the Beyond is a must-have for Black Mages in Abyssea, as it not only boosts Magic Attack Bonus by +30 but it then offers another +30 to Ice elemental magic attack on top of that--and ice magic is already one of the two most useful attacking elements.


  • The "Atma of the Blue Crab" isn't actually an atma at all, but a euphemism for a banned third party tool named Clipper (the atma name is a reference to the monster of the same name as the program).
  • Before being nerfed by Square Enix, atmas made it possible to stack enough—Damage Taken effects onto a pet to make it invincible. Most monsters in Abyssea could be killed by a lone Beastmaster and his pet this way, although it took a very long time in some cases.
  • Atmacite is very similar to atma, also being key items that are described as crystalline agglomerations of soul energies won from mighty extradimensional Notorious Monsters that can be 'infused' by an NPC but requires cruor and only functions in conjunction with an extradimensional phenomena.
