Buff and Debuff are two common phrases used to explain status effects on Heroes. Some Special Skills can leave a negative Status Effect on the opponent.

Buff - Any effect that increases the performance or statistics of your Heroes.

Example - Wu Kong's Special Skill, 'Gambler's Stance', increases Allies attack by 185% attack with -32% accuracy for 5 turns.

Debuff - Any effect that decreases the performance or statistics of your Heroes.

Example - Gormek's Special Skill, 'Ramming Pulverizer', decreases the target and nearby enemies defense for 6 turns.

Status Effect - Status Effects affect Heroes in multiple ways. Much like a Debuff, they have negative consequences to the affected Hero.

Example - Joon's Special Skill, 'Solar Beam', blinds the target, decreasing their accuracy for 6 turns.

Please note - Buffs, Debuffs and Status Effects are shown at the base of the affected Heroes image for the duration of their effect. You can also view how many turns are remaining on the effect by tapping and holding on the affected Hero.
