Gestation is a status effect obtained upon entering an area as a Monipulator, respawning after death as a Monipulator, entering or logging into a Belligerency zone as a Gladiator, or logging in as a Monipulator in any zone other than the Feretory.
The purpose of gestation is to allow a Monipulator or a Gladiator to reach a desirable location before becoming detectable by enemies, because the Odyssean Passage causes a Monipulator to spawn at a random map coordinate. If it is not cancelled, Gestation lasts 18 hours, giving Monipulators plenty of time to move to a desirable location.
Note that Gestation status can be reacquired by logging out and logging back in, so if you desire to travel a great distance through a zone to switch camps, you may want to do this for a speed boost.
Gestation is a combination of the following:
- Completely undetectable, even to True Sight and True Hearing monsters
- Unable take any actions (attacks, spells, job abilities, etc.)
How to remove the effect
- Wait for the effect to wear off
- Remove manually
