"Defence and magic defence decreases every turn. Holy damage taken is increased by 50%."
―Curse's hover-over tip, Epic Battle Fantasy 4
Status Curse
Curse is a negative status effect in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. Its icon is a black vortex. It is generally associated with the Dark element.

Similar to Weaken and Tired statuses, Curse debuffs the affected's Defence and Magic Defence by 10% each turn, unaffected by debuff resistances. This doesn't cancel out natural (de)buff fading (by 5% per turn) and works in conjunction with it, totalling to 15% debuff per turn when the affected has corresponding stat buffs, or 5% otherwise. Additional application of Curse will increase the duration of the ailment, but does not affect debuff rate.

Curse also increases Holy-elemental damage (and only the elemental part of it) taken by 50%, though this will use up one turn of Curse per hit.

Curse can be cured with Garlic (consumable item), Purify, Medipack, Cleanse (ordinary skills) and Kyun (Natalie's Limit Break). Like most status effects, it also vanishes after the battle, when the victim dies (except if with Auto-Revive), or after a number of turns.

Stats before the Battle Mountain update are listed in brackets.
