Status Effects

From Paladins Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Status Effects are negative conditions in Paladins. They usually afflict the targeted Champions with some kind of penalty, and the effect wears off over time or by moving out of the affected area. The effectiveness and the duration of many negative Status Effects can be reduced with Card Resilience.png Resilience.

Crowd Control[edit | edit source]

Crowd Control effects limit Champion's actions or displace them.

Abilities able to interrupt Movement Abilities are referred to as Hard Crowd Control (Hard CC).

Status effects that are unusual, unclear or not specified in the game.

Sticky Bombs

Debuff Daze.png Flashbang[edit | edit source]

Flashbang blinds enemies near its explosion for up to 3s. Blind duration depends on how far the target is from the explosion's center. Cannot see revealed targets through blindness. Flashbang's duration is affected by Resilience.

Midnight restricts the target's vision to a 30-unit radius for 4s. Midnight's duration is affected by Resilience but has a minimum duration of 2s. Becoming CC Immune cleanses Midnight.

Countering[edit | edit source]

Resilience[edit | edit source]

Card Resilience.png Resilience passively reduces the duration and effectiveness of Crowd Control effects and Slows for the whole match. It also affects the duration of Midnight and Flashbang.

CC Immunity[edit | edit source]

Crowd Control Immunity prevents your Champion from being affected by Crowd Control effects but he can still receive Debuffs with the exception of Slows.

Ethereal (State)[edit | edit source]

Champions that become Ethereal can't have their current Health decreased and can't be affected by Crowd Control effects and Debuffs. Additionally, they ignore collisions with enemy Champions and projectiles.

Cleanses[edit | edit source]

Cleanses remove all Crowd Control effects and Debuffs upon activation and prevent them for the duration, they also remove Bomb King's Sticky Bombs.

Diminishing returns[edit | edit source]

Diminishing returns is a mechanic that makes many different types of effects, including Debuffs, less effective when stacked upon an affected target.

For example a Champion has 3 Slow debuffs applied: 60%, 50% and 40%. The Champion is guaranteed to get the full value from the 60% debuff, the other will diminish on top of that 60%. Their total Slow will be 75.75%.

Additionally, attributes that oppose each other will stack their diminished values additively against each other. Movement Speed opposes Slow. Damage Reduction opposes Damage Taken debuffs. Healing Increase opposes Healing Reduction.

Unused Status Effects[edit | edit source]

These effects were either removed, or replaced on later updates.

Debuff AttackSpeedSlow.png Attack Speed Slow[edit | edit source]

Attack Speed Slow reduces the target's weapon firing rate for the duration.

Debuff Bleed.png Bleed[edit | edit source]

Bleed causes the target to take damage over time for the duration.

Debuff Confused.png Confusion[edit | edit source]

Confusion causes the target's user interface to work incorrectly, making it harder to distinguish allies from foes for the duration.

Debuff Daze.png Daze[edit | edit source]

Daze reduces the accuracy of the target's weapon basic attacks for the duration.

Debuff Disarm.png Disarm[edit | edit source]

Disarm prevents the target from using weapon basic attacks for the duration.

Debuff Freeze.png Freeze[edit | edit source]

Freeze locks the target in place for the duration.

Debuff Poison.png Zombie[edit | edit source]

Zombie nullifies any healing the target receives for the duration.
