"Thunder and ice damage taken is increased by 50%. Fire damage is reduced by 50%."
―Wet's reticent hover-over tip, Epic Battle Fantasy 4
Status Wet
EBF5 Status Wet
Wet is a neutral/multi-purpose status effect present in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is associated with the Water element, and its icon is a driblet in EBF4 and a splash in EBF5. The status' effects have remained fairly consistent between the games.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Increases Thunder- and Ice-elemental damage (and only the elemental part of it) taken by 50%, which consumes one turn of Wet per hit.
  • Halves Fire-elemental damage (and only the elemental part of it) taken, which consumes one turn of Wet per hit.
  • Secretly doubles the chance of getting Frozen.
  • Wet keeping Burn EBF4

    Illustration to the last point: Frose and River Squid have non-elemental Wetting attacks that don't remove Berserk/Burn from the targets.

    Contrary to a popular belief, Wet on its own does not cancel Berserk and Burn — only Water- and Ice-elemental attacks do so. The myth comes from the Cloudburst skill, which attempts to Wet everyone and, although it has no direct damage, is visibly assigned Water element and thus counts as a Water-elemental attack. It can lead to a misinterpretation that Berserk/Burn was cancelled by Wet instead of the "attack" itself.

Wet 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. Since Wet is considered as negative by most statuses-related mechanics, it can be blocked by Bless and cannot be cleared by Dispel.

Stats before the Battle Mountain update are listed in brackets.

Wet is available to players through the following skills and equipment:

  • Aqua Arrow — up to 100% chance and 9x [4x] length.
  • Bubbles — up to 60% chance and 1x length.
  • Bubble Blast — up to 60% chance and 1x length, targets all foes.
  • Cloudburst — up to 160% chance and 5x length, targets everyone.
  • Geyser — up to 100% chance and 3x length.
  • Flood — up to 100% chance and 5x length.
  • Giant Squid (summon) — 100% chance, 3x length, targets all foes.
  • Narwhal (summon) — 50% chance, 3x length.
  • Tsunami (Limit Break) — 300% chance, 9x length, targets all foes.

Equipment providing resistance against Wet:

Enemy attacks that can cause Wet:

  • On Hard/Epic, Ice Elemental enters the battle with 9x Wet on self, shielding its Fire weakness.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

  • Wet resistance is now grouped together with Dry resistance.
  • Increases Thunder and Ice-elemental damage taken by 50% while decreasing Fire-elemental damage taken by 50% (in all cases it's only the elemental part); each time an Ice/Thunder attack is boosted or a Fire attack is dampened, one stack of Wet will be consumed.
    • Damage from statuses is also affected (thus dampening the damage of Burn and Scorch), however, in this case stacks of Wet will not be consumed.
  • Cancels out Dry if it's actually inflicted.
  • Doubles the chance to get Frozen.
  • Any incoming Chill becomes Freeze instead, with status chance and stacks remaining the same.
  • Any attack that inflicts Wet will cancel out Burn, Scorch and Berserk from the targets, this happens regardless of whether the status was applied or not (including when the foe is immune to it).

As a neutral status Wet 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 Wet 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 inflicted with Freeze will also remove Wet.
