- The term "Status Effects" is often abbreviated in game as "Sfx".
"Every damage type enables an effect. Fire ignites, toxic poisons, electricity shocks, spectral phases, and physical stuns.
However, dealing damage of any type alone does not apply these effects. Elemental strength needs to be present as well.
Finally, elemental effects are never guaranteed, and they cannot be applied unless damage is dealt to flesh.
The demons' hellish shielding magic prevents such effects, not unlike our own holy shielding enchantments. So shield penetration can solve this problem, if you cannot demolish their shields immediately."
- Smith, Afflictions (Tutorial)
The chance to cause a status effect is determined by the following formula: E/(E+D) where E = Elemental Strength of the attacker and D = Elemental Defense of the target.
