In many games, falling from a decent height will damage the player. I've fallen from maybe 20 or 30 feet and taken no damage, so I'm wondering if it's even possible to take fall damage. Whenever I find a nice cliff to try to jump from, I'm prevented from potentially killing myself by a nice, invisible wall. Is there a certain height threshold that if I fall from, I'll take damage? Or is there just no fall damage in this game?

Apologies if this is like previous Final Fantasy titles. The last Final Fantasy I played was VII and there was no such thing as falling in that game.


Yes, you can take fall damage.

In the quest line for Dino at Guldan Quay, you have to find an ore outcrop. I fell off the cliff this was on top of and took 243 damage.

I didn't jump off the cliff, which might be a contributing factor, as a jump from height seems to produce a landing roll.

I have been unable to reproduce this in any way since.

Further edit
This is reproducable easily by jumping over the top tier of stairs on a watchtower. I have included a video of this.

  • I wonder if it has to do with story progression on that? Cause I remember taking fall damage falling off that exact cliff. – Ramirez Dec 6 '16 at 16:00
  • The fall damage seems to be capped though because I did a really high jump in Duscae near the center of the map and it damaged me really less than expected. It might not be directly proportionnal. – kerwan Dec 6 '16 at 16:12
  • An important note is that you can get fall damage by warp striking something that is very high in the air. Definitely a pain in combat. Though further warping will I believe allow you to avoid the damage. – Chris Jan 7 '17 at 13:39
  • Also worth noting is that you can avoid fall damage by warping just before you land. – Leon7C Sep 13 '17 at 19:59
