A Step is a category of abilities in Final Fantasy XI for Dancers. Steps are offensive in nature and place negative effects on enemy creatures. The Step ability can be used once every 15 seconds. Successfully performing a Step will grant the Dancer two Finishing Moves or anyone using it as a Support Job one finishing move.
Quickstep is the first step learned by a Dancer upon gaining level 20. Quickstep will inflict a Lethargic Daze status. There are 5 levels of Lethargic Daze. Level 1 will grant a -10 Evasion penalty with each subsequent level adding -5. It costs 10 TP to use Quickstep and the probability it will land is based on physical Accuracy.
Stutter step is a step learned at level 40. Stutter step will inflict a daze status that lowers Magical Defense. The probability it will land is based on physical Accuracy. It costs 10 TP to use. Similar to Quickstep, it is believed that the first level of stutter step will give -10% Magical Defense, with each subsequent level up to level 5, an additional -5% is added.
