This page explains the mechanics of status effects (状態変化) in Trails in the Sky FC, SC, and the 3rd.


A status effect is any alteration that applies to units in combat, characterized by an icon above the unit on the field, and an icon above their stats display in the user interface.

Various effects can be applied through the use of arts, crafts, equipped quartz that modify the user's attacks, or by enemy skills. Status effects are classified depending on how they affect the unit: stat modifiers are effects that directly increase or reduce the unit's stats, while abnormal status are other types of effects that can be beneficial or detrimental. Detrimental abnormal statuses are also referred as ailments.

Only one application of a particular status effect can be active on a unit. Reapplying the same effect will not stack its strength (for stat modifiers) or duration; it will overwrite the previous effect's strength and duration (e.g. Zin's Distend's 30% STR increase for 800 AT will be replaced by Estelle's Morale's 20% STR increase for 500 AT).

Stat modifiers will raise or lower the unit's stats by a percentage of the unit's base stats, without taking into account equipment or quartz.


The duration of a status effect is determined by the type of effect and method of application. Most effects have a duration expressed in AT units, but some effects are permanent until cured or the end of battle, or last only for a certain amount of attacks. This means units with higher SPD will spend more turns under status effects than units with lower SPD.


Negative effects can be resisted, in which case the effect will not apply and RESIST will appear on screen. Player characters can resist status effects by equipping various pieces of equipment, while enemies can have innate resistances to various effects.
