What Are Status Effects?
Status effects can disable or buff an unit (or party) depending on their nature. Offensive status effects can be considered disabilities since they effectively disable the enemy. Beneficiary status effects can be considered as buffs that increases the strength of the unit (or party). This page will go over all status effects available in game.
