FFXIV Frozen

Freeze status in Final Fantasy XIV.

You'd best be frozen!
—Freezing Dust's flavor text from Final Fantasy VI

Freeze (フリーズ, Furīzu?), also called Frozen (凍結, Tōketsu?) , is a recurring status ailment from the series, usually associated with the Ice element. It can halt enemies from taking action, usually by afflicting them with Stop. Despite their naming similarities, the ability called Freeze doesn't inflict the Freeze status.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI The status is not named in the game, the word Frozen is used in the flavored text of the inflicting abilities. Frozen is a status ailment similar to Stop, the character is encased in ice and cannot take any action. This status can be removed by hitting the frozen character with a Fire-elemental spell or weapon, Sabin's Soul Spiral, and Mog's Water Harmony's Raccoon.

This status eventually wears off on its own, but it takes twice as long as Stop or Sleep. If Terra is frozen while tranced, and the trance bar runs out during her frozen state, she will be permanently tranced for the duration of the battle.

Of particular note, Gau has access to this status through the use of the Fiend Dragon Rage, through the ability Northern Cross, and no enemy or boss in the game has immunity to said status.
