Day 8:

Status Ailments

This time I’ll talk about ailments on A Punishment for Mai:

There are skills that can cause ailments in characters and enemies. These ailments can be both positive and negative.
All ailments disappear over time depending on a percentage.
The item called pill can heal the majority of the negative ailments.
The skill called Purification can heal the majority of the negative ailments.
When our character is inflicted with an ailment you’ll see it reflected in the HUD, in the red box marked area on the image:

This is a list of positive ailments:

* Note: This ailment can only be used by enemies and the duration can be variable sometimes.

This is a list of negative ailments:

* Note: This ailment can only be inflicted on characters, because they are the only ones who can use items.

And that’s all for now.
