Gameplay | Buffs, Debuffs and Status Ailments

In battle, units are capable of inflicting negative debuffs on the enemy, and the enemy can do the same to a player's units. Unlike basic status ailments, units and enemies are also capable of gaining positive buffs. There is currently only one item that can remove these negative debuffs and keep a player's party in top shape, while there is a variety of buffing items available. Buffs and debuffs do not carry over between battles.

For a category list of all Detailed Buff Lists, see Detailed Buff Lists.
