Paladins Wiki

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 Unbound or Card Illuminate Sentinel.

Crowd Control[ | ]

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

Countering[ | ]

Unbound[ | ]

Card Resilience Unbound passively reduces the duration and effectiveness of Crowd Control effects except for slows, knockbacks and knockups for the whole match. It also affects the duration of Midnight and Flashbang.

Sentinel[ | ]

Card Illuminate Sentinel passively reduces the effectiveness of slows, knockups and knockbacks for the whole match.

CC Immunity[ | ]

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)[ | ]

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[ | ]

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[ | ]

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[ | ]

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

Debuff AttackSpeedSlow Attack Speed Slow[ | ]

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

Debuff Bleed Bleed[ | ]

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

Debuff Confused Confusion[ | ]

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

Debuff Daze Daze[ | ]

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

Debuff Poison Zombie[ | ]

Zombie nullifies any healing the target receives for the duration.
