- "Shroud status, eh?
Does anyone have the Reflex skill equipped? It's no biggie, just blow it away with some wind."

Shroud is a negative status effect introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Its icon is a dark grey cloud. It prevents the player from viewing the afflicted's HP bar, stats, and status conditions except for Shroud itself, without any impact on actual gameplay. This status condition is always disadvantageous to the player, whether it's on themselves or the foes.
If for some reason you want to Shroud foes, random status effects are the only way for players to inflict Shroud.
There are two summons which allow the player to inflict Shroud from the random status effect.
Smoky attacks from mostly Fire and Dark-based foes are the typical causes of Shroud on players.
