Status Effects in Elden Ring covers information regarding the different status effects that are obtained by both players and NPCs. Status Effects can be equally devastating to the player, Bosses, and other Enemies of the Lands Between. This page contains a full list of all the Status Effects in the game.
The efficacy of inflicting Status Effects is greater against unaware Enemies.
- See Buffs & Debuffs for useful information regarding the stacking or overwriting of effects on your character.
- See Equipment with Special Effects for special stat-increasing or effect-granting weapons and armor.
- See Damage Types to identify the best sources and resistances for all damage types.
- See Affinities for a comparison of each affinity's effects and their respective whetblades.
Elden Ring Status Effects
Toxins designed to whittle and slowly sap the life from enemies can inflict Poison or Deadly Poison.
When inflicted by Poison, the victim suffers from damage-over-time. The exact damage and duration varies with source of Poison.
Pathogens designed to crumble the very being of its enemies and consume their flesh can inflict Scarlet Rot.
When inflicted by Scarlet Rot, the victim suffers from considerable damage-over-time. The exact damage and duration varies with source of Rot.
Techniques designed to wound and exsanguinate can inflict acute Blood Loss.
When inflicted by Blood Loss, the victim suffers instant damage based on their max HP (100 + 15%, or 200 + 15%).
Tranquilizing agents hailing from St. Trina and its lilies can inflict its targets with drowsiness, forcing them to Sleep.
When inflicted by Sleep, the victim falls asleep or briefly loses their balance. This effect can also cure mind control, see Giant Ant.
Contagious mental illness hailing from the Three Fingers and the Flame of Frenzy can inflict Madness.
Corrupted influence extracted from the Rune of Death can inflict Death Blight.
When taken by Death Blight, spires of pure death rapidly grow from their dead body, killing the victim immediately.
Elden Ring Character Effects Icons
A list of icons displayed under your healthbar indicates current statuses from afflictions, but also beneficial ones from allies, Incantations, Talismans or Equipment with Special Effects. A list of icons and their meaning is provided below:
- Icons with square borders represent permanent effects or effects which come from a permanent source such as a Talisman.
- Permanent afflictions can be freely stacked together.
- Icons with diamond borders represent temporary effects.
- Temporary afflictions, such as buffs/debuffs, are often categorized and only one of each category can be active at a time.
- Icons with no border represent effects which seem to be reactive with the world or have contextual requirements, but are not as clearly defined as those aforementioned.
