EBF5 Status Dry.png

Dry is a neutral/multi-purpose status effect in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is associated with the Fire element, and its icon is a group of orange heat lines. Its effects are as follows:

  • Increases Fire and Bomb-elemental damage taken by 50% while decreasing Thunder and Ice-elemental damage taken by 50% (in all cases it's only the elemental part); each time a Fire/Bomb attack is boosted or an Ice/Thunder attack is dampened, one stack of Dry will be consumed.
    • Damage from statuses is also affected (thus boosting the damage of Burn and Scorch), however, in this case, stacks of Dry will not be consumed.
  • Cancels out Wet if it's actually inflicted.
  • Doubles the chance to get Burned and Scorched.

As a neutral status Dry cannot be cured with standard cleansing effects or items, and won't be removed by getting Dispelled either. The main way for players to remove Dry off themselves is the Cutie Worm summon. 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. Getting hit with Water-elemental damage will also remove the status.
