In Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy, understanding battle effects is an important aspect of mastering the battle system. Status effects are inflicted by the attacks you take against enemies or the attacks that they take against you. You can also cause status through the use of certain items in the game that are made through the Synthesis crafting system.
There are two main groups of effects, positive and negative. In this guide, we will run through them all and what they actually do so you are not left wondering about what is happening during a battle.
