How to Limit Break in Final Fantasy 16

Limit Break is a power you get as you naturally progress through the game. Just after finishing the "Holding On" quest, you will be given the "Buried Memories" quest, which will send you into Phoenix Gate. There, you will go into an underground structure and fight a boss. This boss is split up into multiple stages, with you eventually learning the Limit Break ability near the end.

In order to use the Limit Break ability, you need to load up the Limit Break bar by fighting enemies. This is located just below the health bar in the top left of the screen. When it is full, click in the left and right analogue sticks to start it. You will then do more damage and take far less damage for the duration of the Limit Break.
