Buffs and Debuffs

Some of the information below is taken from CSDN. [1]

Some skills may inflict negative status effects. A successful infliction is indicated by a purple status icon, and sometimes an accompanying sprite (i.e. a "zzz" above an enemy when given sleep). There are also positive status effects.

Skills will not always successfully inflict its status effect, and some targets are immune to certain status effects. Certain skills which indicate "ignores target resistance" will always successfully inflict its status effect, if the target can be afflicted with the respective status.

  • In the wiki, the following icons are used indicate that pain/poison/rage is one that ignore target resistance. Pain ignore.pngPoison ignore.pngRage ignore.png

In general, status effects are distinct from Buffs and Debuffs.

Playable 5★ characters will have the opportunity to increase resistance to all negative status effects by 10-20% via the ability board.

Status Ailment Duration and Cure Rates[edit]

1. Skills: Game has standard status ailments removal mechanic with randomized cure rates that progress with turns passed: Increasing chance that status ailments applied from skills (such as poison, pain, rage, bind, darkness, etc.) will be removed after each turn. This affects both allies and enemies. This mechanic is used on all characters' skills that don't explicitly have turn duration mentioned.

Turn 1 2 3 4 5
Probability of Removal 0.0% 37.5% 62.5% 87.5% 100.0%
※Turn 1 is turn where status is inflicted.
Meaning at start of Turn 5, status will be not be present if status is not further renewed.

2. Equipment: Standard for all equipment such as, but may not be limited to Weapons, Grasta, Armor, Sidekick Equipment is to always have a duration of 3 turns.

3. When skill or equipment have exact turn duration or (persistent) property: mentioned in description, it means that standard rules are ignored and status inflicted by this method will have fixed turn duration or will never end in current battle in case of (persistent) .

  • ※ Note that (persistent) Statuses can still be cleansed with Status clear effects or overridden with newer infliction with different duration. (see #Duplicated Status Affliction)

4. Exceptions: Certain status effects are treated differently from above.

  • Status Curse.pngCurse: If a character is inflicted by curse, no form of status clear will remove the status effect. You must defeat the caster to remove the effect. In addition, curse will ignore Status Nullify.png Status Immunity.
  • Status Stone.pngStone: If a character is inflicted by stone, the character can not recover naturally over turns passed. You must use a form of status clear from another character to remove stone.
  • Status Stun.pngStun: If a character/enemy is inflicted by stun, they will be unable to move for 1 turn only. If in Another Force, and a character is Stun, another character can use a status clear move to allow for the Stun character to move within Another Force.

Status Affliction Chance[edit]

This section also applies to debuff affliction, except enemies do not have debuff resistances.

  • Enemies have status resistances. Therefore status-inflicting skills with 100% chance does not guarantee status affliction. Only skills with ignore target resistance will guarantee status affliction.

[math]\displaystyle{ \textrm{Effective Chance = Inflict Chance} \times \textrm{(1-Enemy Status Resistance)} }[/math]

  • If a skill without "ignore target resistance" has a 100% chance of applying pain and enemy has 50% status resistance, pain is only applied 50% of the time
  • If an enemy has 100% resistance to a status, only skills with "ignore target resistance" can inflict the status
  • In general, mobs have 0% status resistance, Bag Baddies have 50% status resistance, and bosses have 100% stun and sleep resistance.
  • Some enemies, such as Delusional Fungi are immune to all statuses, including pain and poison, and there is no way to inflict statuses.
  • Status barriers can be bypassed by certain skills, such as Pom's Profane Medicine or skills with Barrier Pierce property or by effect from St ignore barrier.png Barrier Pierce buff.
  • With equipment that afflict statuses (e.g. Miaki's Katana, or Power of Pain with Dormant enhancement), skills may inflict statuses. Most skills only have 1 chance to roll in the whole move (usually on the last hit), but skills which target random enemies or which have hits calculated separately will roll per hit instead.


The chance of applying statuses per skill use, depends on the number of hits in the skill which can apply status, as well as the RNG chance of the equipment. Most skills only have one hit which can apply. The following formulas apply to an individual hit. In short, the more equipment which offers infliction, on more hits which can inflict, allow higher chance of infliction.

The chance of applying statuses can be calculated via probabilities, with equipment, grasta and skill inflict chance independent of each other.
E.g. For an enemy with no status resistance, the chance of applying on individual hits is:
[math]\displaystyle{ 1 - (1 - a\%) \times (1 - b\%)^c \times (1 - d\%) }[/math]
For an enemy with status resistance, the chance is:
[math]\displaystyle{ 1 - [1 - a\% \times (1 - e\%)] \times [1 - b\% \times (1 - e\%)]^c\times [1 - d\% \times (1 - e\%)] }[/math]
Where a% is chance from skill, b% is chance from grasta/ore, c is number of grasta ore, d% is chance from weapon, and e% is enemy status resistance

Duplicated Status Affliction[edit]

[2]When multiple poison/pain statuses are inflicted on the same target there are rules of how properties of resulting effect are combined:

1. From different sources or in different moments:

  • Duration: Latest infliction overrides earlier.
  • Damage over Time number: Biggest number takes priority

2. From same source in same moment (Character with skill and equipment that both inflict same status, successfully inflicts status with both with same hit)

  • Duration: Number of turns from skill takes priority
  • Damage over Time number: Biggest number takes priority

Example for Rule #1:

  • Character A with high intelligence poisoned the enemy (permanent, damage ~3000, strength: [80%]), and after character B with low intelligence poisoned the enemy (3 turns, damage ~1000, strength: [160%]).
    • Poison that remains on the enemy: 3 turns with damage ~3000 strength: [80%]
      • Duration: later inflicted 3 turns overrides permanent
      • Greater damage is taken regardless of pain [strength]

Example for Rule #2:

  • Same character with same attack inflicts Pain from skill (standard random cure rate, damage ~3000, strength: [90%]), and from Weapon (3 turns, damage ~1500, strength: [45%]).
    • Pain that remains on the enemy: 2-4 random turns duration, with damage ~3000 strength: [90%]
      • Duration: Skill duration takes priority, so it may end in 2 turn randomly
      • Greater damage is taken with bigger strength (Both are calculated from PWR stat of character)
