This is a guide to the Status Effects in D&D: Dark Alliance. If you're wondering how each Condition works, what Buffs to prioritize, or how to counteract Debuffs, read on!
The Silenced debuff blocks ability usage
Status Effects are gameplay factors that can weaken or strengthen you during Acts. You will have to adapt to each one, and change your style of combat when affected by them.
You can also purchase Useables from the merchant to help with these effects or equip items that either provide resistance to them or buff the damage you can inflict with them.
Conditions cannot be countered by potions or equipment. They can be caused by enemy abilities, such as Trolls that will throw bear traps at you, or environmental hazards like frozen floors that will damage you if you stand on them too long. They work in combination with Debuffs.
The best way to avoid them is to be aware of your surroundings and the movements of your enemies.
Buffs are bonuses that will aid you in combat. They can be attached to pieces of equipment, and you can further increase the bonuses by completing equipment sets. These can range from increased regeneration to increased resistance to damage. You can also use potions, such as the Elixir of Elemental Resistance, to gain temporary Buffs.
The best Buffs to prioritize would be Elemental Resistance, which reduces all incoming Elemental Damage, and Powerful Strikes, which increases your chance of critical hits. These can apply to most combat situations, but don't be afraid to change your priorities depending on the environments and enemies.
Debuffs are primarily inflicted by enemy attacks and abilities, and they severely weaken your impact during combat. These can range from decreasing your movement speed to increasing the damage dealt to you by 50%.
Purchase the Elixir of Cleansing as soon as possible. This removes all Debuffs affecting you and gives you the Unstoppable buff.
