Positive or negative effects that can be applied or incurred during combat

Your hero and their enemies can all be affected by different status conditions. These effects can be positive ('Buffs') or negative ('Debuffs').

Buffs are typically acquired via Power deck cards and powerful loadout items, while debuffs (along with curses) are usually the result of attacks by Enemies.

Some statuses last until the end of each battle (typically if they were applied as the result of a power card), while others may increase or decrease each turn.
