Status Effects

From Gigantic Wiki

Status effects include a variety of conditions that affects heroes and creatures and are applied by their abilities. There are 3 groups of status effects in Gigantic:

  • Buffs – status effects that provide positive benefits to allies
  • Debuffs – negative status effects that harm target over time
  • Disruptions (also known as Crowd Control, CC effects or Hit Reactions) – negative status effects that influence target's movement and abilities
