Revision as of 15:20, July 9, 2019

Status

EBF4 Status Effects, with a certain foe having immunity to all of them.

Status effects, commonly shortened to just statuses, are special conditions in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. They can be inflicted during battle, hindering or helping their prowess in a variety of ways. Since Epic Battle Fantasy 3, hovering the cursor over an inflicted status effect will show its description.

Negative status effects are often referred to as "ailments" or "debuffs", while positive status effects may be called "buffs". However, they should not be confused with abilities or equipment that modify stats (although some status effects also affect the target's stats).

Additionally,

  • Most negative and many neutral status effects can be cured. Standard methods include Garlic (since EBF3) / Antidote (EBF1&2) as consumable items, Purify, Medipack (since EBF3) and Cleanse (EBF4) as ordinary skills, Heaven's Gate's and Seraphim's Unleashes (EBF3 only) as self-heals, and Kyun (since EBF2) as a Limit Break. Dying also works.
  • Most status effects also fade/wear off over time/turns.
  • All status effects will be cleared upon returning to overworld (since EBF3) or reaching a checkpoint (EBF1&2).
  • Most of status effects can be stacked, e.g. inflicting tier 2 Poison three times on the same target will result in tier 6 Poison, not considering status fading. However, for most statuses it only increases their duration and not the strength of their effects.
  • The division between positive, negative and neutral statuses is purely for user convenience and may not accurately reflect their technical category in-game.

Positive status effects

Auto-Revive / Autolife (Gold halo / white feather)

  • EBF5 Status Auto Revive

    in 3+

    EBF2 Status Auto Revive

    in 2

    Typical cause: Certain skills and the passive effects of some equipment.
  • Effects: The target immediately comes back to life when its HP hits 0, retaining stat (de)buffs and most status effects except Auto-Revive itself, and regains a portion of its HP. In EBF2, only stat (de)buffs are retained, as with normal revival.
  • Cure: Dispel (except in EBF3), defeat the target, or wait for it to wear off (except if on EBF2 Spirit).
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 2, under the name Autolife; renamed into Auto-Revive in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Bless (Four-leaf clover)

  • EBF5 Status Bless

    in 5

    Status Bless
    Typical cause: Certain healing skills and the passive effects of some equipment. Breeze weather.
  • Effects: The target cannot be inflicted with status effects from enemy attacks, including (but not limited to) Dispel, Doom and Instant Death, as well as Wet and most instances of Berserk. Doesn't clear already inflicted status effects. Doesn't affect self-induced statuses, such as Bone Armor's Curse. Certain specific attacks can bypass Bless (ie the Hungry caused by Mammoths when they die). Doesn't affect stat debuffs.
  • Cure: As it cannot be Dispelled, the only cure is to wait for it to wear off with time.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Brave (Red axe)

  • EBF5 Status Brave

    in 5

    Status Brave
    Typical cause: Certain buffing skills and the passive effects of some equipment. Sunny weather.
  • Effects: The target has a greatly increased critical hit chance (base% * 2 + 20) and immunity to being struck by a critical hit (except in EBF4, where Stagger's guaranteed critical takes priority).
  • Cure: Dispel or wait for it to wear off.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Charge (Light blue / yellow spark)

  • EBF5 Status Charge

    in 5

    Status Charge
    Typical cause: Certain skills and the passive effects of some equipment. On higher difficulties, some enemies enter the battle with the status on them already.
  • Effects: Allows the target to launch certain powerful attack (i.e. Hyper Beam for Lance, Ion Cannon for Praetorian), expending the status. Doesn't vanish upon death.
  • Cure: None; either defeat the affected foe or disable them (preferably with Stun or Freeze; Syphon and Berserk may or may not work, depending on the foe) and wait it out. On players, even death will not remove the status.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4, but similar effects existed since the first Epic Battle Fantasy.

Defend (Yellow shield)

For special effects of the "Defend" command prior to Epic Battle Fantasy 4, see Tactics#Defend.
  • Status Defend
    Typical cause: Certain skills and summons, as well as the "Defend" command (for players).
  • Effects: Halves non-status damage taken during the next turn. Cannot be stacked. Disables counterattacks.
  • Cure: Dispel or wait a turn for it to wear off.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4, but similar effects existed since the first Epic Battle Fantasy.

Epic (Golden flame)

  • EBF5 Status Epic
    Typical cause: Fight against God.
  • Effects: A powerful aura gives crazy buffs every turn (all stats increased by 25%, 20% after buff fading is taken into account). Status cannot be removed.
  • Cure: None.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Good Luck (Golden horseshoe)

  • EBF5 Status Good Luck
    Typical cause: Certain skills and summons. Sacred Land weather.
  • Effects: Attacks have 25% more accuracy, 25% more critical hit chance and 25% more chance to cause status effects and debuffs. Incoming attacks have 10% less accuracy, 30% less critical hit chance, 25% less chance to cause status effects and debuffs. Incoming Instant Death becomes Stagger. Can either reduce the likelihood of capturing foes (on foes) or make them easier to capture (on players).
  • Cure: Wait for it to wear off, Dispel, inflict Bad Luck.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Haste (Blue watch)

  • EBF5 Status Haste
    Typical cause: Encore skill and Viking Monolith summon. Cherry Blossom weather.
  • Effects: The target can perform an additional action per stack of Haste.
  • Cure: Dispel, wait for it to wear off (enemies will only ever take one additional action, regardless of how many stacks of Haste they have).
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Lovable (Pink hearts)

  • EBF5 Status Lovable
    Typical cause: Cherish, Loving Aura and 7th Heaven skills, Rescue Dog summon, certain foes' skills.
  • Effects: Prevents the afflicted from being targeted by most single-target attacks. If all players have it active, foes may either use multi-target attacks exclusively or surrender (only if their catchscore is currently >55).
  • Cure: Wait for it to wear off or Dispel.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Morale (Green helmet)

  • EBF5 Status Morale

    in 5

    Status Morale
    Typical cause: Passive effects of some equipment and the Kitten Fort summon. Sunny weather.
  • Effects: The target cannot be killed in one hit if their HP is above or equal 49%; a lethal blow will only reduce them to 1 HP. This includes Instant Death, Doom and the "overflow" attack, but not the Sacrifice skill.
  • Cure: Dispel or wait for it to wear off.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Regen (Green cross)

  • EBF5 Status Regenerate

    in 5

    Status Regen
    Typical cause: The effects of some equipment, skills, and summons. Sacred Land weather
  • Effects: Restores some of the target's HP at the beginning of their side's turn (EBF4), or during the foes-to-players turn transition, before Poison (EBF2&3).
  • Cure: Dispel or wait for it to wear off. Alternatively, a damage-over-time effect like Poison may offset the HP gain.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 2.

Negative status effects

Bad Luck (Black/Red horseshoe)

  • EBF5 Status Bad Luck
    Typical cause: Some spells and summons.
  • Effects: Attacks have 20% less accuracy, 20% less critical hit chance, 20% less chance to cause status effects and debuffs. Incoming attacks have 10% more accuracy, 30% more critical hit chance, 25% more chance to cause status effects and debuffs. Incoming Doom becomes Instant Death. If applied on a target who already has Doom, reduces its counter to 1. Can either reduce the likelihood of capturing foes (on players) or make them easier to capture (on foes).
  • Cure: Inflicting Good Luck or standard methods.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

    Status Curse
    Typical cause: Dark-based skills. Some equipment inflicts this on the user.
  • Effects: Target's Defence and Magic Defence are debuffed by 10% each turn, with the usual stat (de)buff fading (by 5%) going afterwards — in total, the debuff would be 15% per turn when the affected has corresponding stat buffs, or 5% otherwise; in EBF5 the debuff is increased to 15%, resulting in a 20% decrease if the foe is already buffed or 10% otherwise. Also increases Holy-elemental damage taken by 50%, which consumes one stack of Curse per hit.
  • Cure: Standard methods.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Delete (Red cross)

Dispel / Debuff (Broken yellow disk)

  • Status Dispel
    Typical cause: Certain skills. Stormy weather.

  • Cure: Buff back. Try to prevent Dispel via corresponding status resistance or Bless.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy, under the name Debuff (not to be confused with stat debuffs); renamed into Dispel in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.

  • EBF5 Status Doom

    in 5

    Status Death

    in 4

    Status Doom

    in 3

    Typical cause: Dark-based skills, Cursed Land weather.
  • Effects: Applies Instant Death onto the target when the status expires (its "timer" reaches zero), OR light non-elemental damage if Death was resisted. Cannot be stacked. "Timer" will jump to 1 if Bad Luck is applied while active, and will immediately cause Instant Death if inflicted on a target already suffering from Bad Luck.
  • Cure: Standard methods except waiting it out. During the "countdown", you can apply Bless, change equipment to get Death immunity or apply Auto-Revive.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 3.

Freeze (Ice crystal)

  • EBF5 Status Freeze

    in 5

    Status Freeze

    in 4

    Typical cause: Ice-based skills, being hit by a skill that causes Chill while Wet, Blizzard weather.
  • Effects: Target skips their turn as long as they are Frozen. They take increased damage from the next attack that hits them (except for Fire-elemental damage), which cancels Freeze. Poison and Burn will not cause damage, yet continue to tick down.
  • Cure: Damaging (including cases when damage is nullified by elemental resistance) or healing the target; Purify and Cleanse will not help. For players, "forced" movement also helps, such as catching items, intro animations of certain summons and Limit Breaks (except in EBF3), and in EBF2 cheering after clearing a wave. Additionally, EBF3 Freeze lasts forever until disrupted, thus waiting it out wouldn't work.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 2.

Hungry (Fork and knife)

    Typical cause: Some foes' skills, caused by Mammoths upon dying.
  • Effects: The affected becomes uncontrollable and eats random food from a private stash.

    Typical cause: Some foe'skills, being hit by a skill that causes Doom when Bad Luck is active, the Annihilate Limit Break.
  • Effects: The target dies, regardless of its health remaining. The status isn't lasting.
  • Cure: Revive. Corresponding status resistance (including Bless) is the only way to prevent Instant Death; otherwise, Auto-Revive and Morale can be used to minimize the harm. Good Luck status will cause incoming Instant Death to become Stagger instead.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 3, but similar effects existed since Epic Battle Fantasy 2.

Poison (Green bubbles)

  • EBF5 Status Poison

    in 5
