Were you looking for Daze (Weaponskill)?
Method of Affliction
Notes on Status effect
Daze is the generic game term for Dancer-related status effects. This status is restricted to monsters, as monsters cannot use Dancer abilities, and results from either Step usage or meleeing a monster with a Samba on. The monster can be inflicted with multiple different Step Dazes simultaneously, but only one Samba Daze. Step Dazes generally result in an enfeeblement of some kind, while Samba Dazes positively affect the other players meleeing the monster and only indirectly affect the monster through them.
The number of Steps used (regardless of Presto) determines duration, which caps at 2 minutes. The initial Step inflicts a Daze with 1 minute duration, while subsequent Steps of the same type will increase the remaining Daze duration by 30 seconds. Both the duration added by each individual step and the cap are increased when on the Dancer main job through the Dancer Step Duration Job Points, +1 second per level.
Samba Dazes have static potency, which depends on the Samba, and duration (~10 seconds).
Example: A Dancer with Haste Samba on is fighting a monster and has already put level 1 Lethargic Daze on the monster with Box Step (60 second initial duration). Fifteen seconds later, they use Presto and then Box Step. Now the Lethargic Daze is level 3 and has a duration of 75 seconds. They have been meleeing it, so the monster has been inflicted with Haste Daze the entire time.
