Tutorial Status Icons
Ailments are effects that attacks can cause various positive or negative changes in the battle. 

In BattleEdit

Status effects cause various detrimental effects on the afflicted target. Each effect is represented by an icon and turn number. When the number reaches 0, the status is removed. Turn numbers can stack up to a maximum of 9 turns.

Status effects can be instantly removed with its respective herb, or by using the Apothecary's Rehabilitate skill. They can also be prevented entirely using specific accessories.

Stat changes can be canceled out by using a buffing or debuffing skill with the opposite effect (e.g. if the enemy used Augmentation (Increase Physical Attack), Shackle Foe (Decrease Physical Attack) will bring their physical attack back to normal).

Status ailments and stat changes do not remain after battle.
