Status EffectImpact
SleepSome gear in Elden Ring brandishes sedatives that can lull enemies into a dreamlike state, preventing them from attacking and defending.
HemorrhageSome 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.
MadnessRepeatedly using this status builds the Madness meter. Once filled, the target loses FP and is unable to cast spells.
PoisonThe 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.
BlightOnce the Blight meter fills, the Tarnished will fall, no matter how much health they have left.
FrostbiteFrostbite 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 DeathThis Curse has a status meter that builds over time. Once the Instant Death meter fills, the Tarnished dies immediately.
