There are a variety of sicknesses you can inflict on your enemies and can often make boss battles much easier.
You can inflict sicknesses upon your opponents in two ways; with a weapon that carries the disease, or with a skill that utilizes it. For example, if a blade has the effect of causing Sleep at 5%, the creature using it will have a 5% chance of inflicting Sleep with its normal attack.
Skills with a sickness work a bit differently. For example, if a Neko uses Kitty Bomb with a 25% Sleep chance, and is wearing an axe with a 10% Sleep chance, Kitty Bomb will execute with a 35% chance of causing Sleep to its targets instead.
However, if a Neko uses Earth Cracker or Power Thrust there will be no Sleep effect used at all, because these skills do not have a base Sleep chance.
Please note that if a creature belongs to another player and you have sickened a creature for several turns, you cannot inflict that same sickness on that particular creature again until it expires. For example, if a Neko is afflicted with Blind , you cannot inflict Blind on that Neko again until the turn the illness fades away, but you can inflict her with Sleep instead.
This applies only to player owned creatures to negate locking down and frustrating people during PVP, so enemies in the story can have their sicknesses refreshed.
Your resistance to sicknesses can also be increased. For example, if a creature is wearing armor with 5% Stone, a Stone attack will need at least a value of 6% to have even a 1% chance of succeeding.
The following table lists the different types of sicknesses and their effects in battle:
|Instant||Kills a target instantly, setting its Current HP to 0.|
|Lasts 6 Turns||Puts the victim to sleep, preventing it from taking action. It also restores a small amount of a target's HP and EP. Note that being successfully struck by any attack will awaken the affected creature.|
|Lasts 5 Turns||Petrifies the victim, preventing it from taking action.|
|Lasts 6 Turns||Makes a creature slowly rot away, resulting in damage from EP and HP recovering skills as well as items.|
|Lasts 4 Turns||Damages a creature's vision, resulting in a 75% reduction to the ACC value of the victim's skills and attacks. This sickness also disables the creature's ability to launch a critical attack.|
|Lasts 5 Turns||Poisons the victim's bloodstream, causing it to gradually lose HP and EP.|
|Lasts 7 Turns||Seals away the power of a creature, preventing it from using skills during battle.|
|Lasts 6 Turns||Drains the victim of blood, gradually lowering its HP and occasionally granting some of it to a member of the opposing team.|
