For The King Wiki


Status effects (Buffs, Debuffs, Displacements, and Ailments) are temporary modifiers that have correspondingly negative or positive consequences. They are applied through abilities, certain weapons, or when attacked by unique creatures. They vary in longevity and effect, although most will only last as long as a single battle.

Various creatures are immune to certain status effects. In terms of player involvement, specific equipment, items, and Sanctums will grant differing immunities to their user. Certain classes or creatures also share their own thematic immunities (i.e. Skeletons resisting Bleeding).

Depending on the effect, the duration will be one of the following (not including conditions that end the effect early):

  • Short: Once applied to the target, it will last until after the applicant's next turn, expiring at the beginning of the target's following turn.
  • Fight: Once applied, it will last until the end of the fight.
  • Persistent: Once applied, it will last until cured.
  • Other: Some effects work uniquely, like Petrified, which lasts up to 3 of the target's turns.
