What Are Abnormal Status Effects?

Various Negative Effects


Abnormal Status Effects impair a character (or monster) in a variety of ways. This includes taking damage over time, or becoming incapacitated. Each status will have a different effect and way to remove it. You'll want to make sure you get rid of these as fast as possible, as they can be quite deadly.

Apply By Repeatedly Using Status Attacks

In general you can apply an abnormal status effect on a monster by increasing its "status value" to a certain point. You can do this by hitting it with an attack of a particular status type (poison, paralysis, etc).

Monsters Grow Resistant To Status Effects

Most monsters will grow resistant to a particular abnormal status when they've been afflicted with it once. This makes it difficult to repeatedly apply the same status - you'll have to reach a higher status value amount each successive time. Also, there are diminishing returns on stun time as well.

Other Ways To Apply Exist As Well

It's also possible to inflict Abnormal Status Effects by using items or Endemic Life. Some of these will really come in handy when fighting tough monsters, so stock up on them!

Blights Are A Different Effect


Note that Elemental Blights are technically considered a separate category from Abnormal Status Effects. In order to counteract the effects of blights, you'll have to use different types of resistances and skills, so don't confuse the two.
