Encumberance is a harmful status effect that blocks changing certain equipped gear for a period of time. Most variants also remove whatever is in the affected slots, but some simply block changing what's already equipped. Can still cast spells, use Job Abilities and attack.

Differs from the effect inflicted by Pathos (Salvage) in that it is not removed by using "Cells" to unlock each of the 16 equipment slots, and it is inflicted by monsters.

How to remove the effect[edit]

  • Wears off after a brief period of time.
