Recast Timers

Use Your Timers
Tap a timer name to activate the timer. You should activate it just after using the ability in FFXI. If the job ability has a duration, such as Flee or Mighty Strikes, it will highlight brown and count down until the duration ends. The timer will then highlight red and count down the recharge time for that ability. If you make a mistake, tap the timer again to reset it to ready.

Special timers


Dancer "Steps" Timer
This timer tracks a step's daze level and its remaining duration. Tap the timer to increment the daze level and add to the remaining duration. You can tap again while the timer is recharging to increase the daze level without resetting the recharging time. This lets you track contributions of other Dancers in your party. To return the timer to Ready, tap the timer's blue reset button.

Scholar "Stratagems" Timer
This timer displays the remaining charges for your Stratagems. Tap the timer each time you use one charge. The timer recharges one Stratagem charge at a time, returning to Ready once all charges become available.
