|Sleep||Some gear in Elden Ring brandishes sedatives that can lull enemies into a dreamlike state, preventing them from attacking and defending.|
|Hemorrhage||Some gear can inflict Bleeding status and build the Hemorrhage gauge. Once this bar fills, the enemy takes damage equal to a portion of their max HP value.|
|Madness||Repeatedly using this status builds the Madness meter. Once filled, the target loses FP and is unable to cast spells.|
|Poison||The repeated application of status inflicts the buildup of the Poison meter. Once the Poison meter maxes out, afflicted targets will continually take Poison damage over an extended period.|
|Blight||Once the Blight meter fills, the Tarnished will fall, no matter how much health they have left.|
|Frostbite||Frostbite accumulates through the repeated application of the status. Once the Frostbite meter fills, impacted parties will take damage, reduce damage mitigation, and temporarily slows stamina recovery.|
|Instant Death||This Curse has a status meter that builds over time. Once the Instant Death meter fills, the Tarnished dies immediately.|
