Status Effects are temporary physical conditions in Conan Exiles.

Description[]

Status Effects can have either positive (buff) or negative (debuff) properties that can impact combat and survival. The Player Character can place certain status effects on themselves, their followers, fellow players, and other enemies in the game. The Player can, likewise, have status effects placed upon them by fellow players and enemies alike.

Weather and other environmental conditions can also place status effects upon the Player, with Followers immune to most environmental damage with the exception of Noxious Gas and damage caused by the extreme heat while standing in lava.

Combat Status Effects[]

Bleeding[]

  • T BuffIconBleed.png The Bleeding status effect is a debuff that deals 1 point of damage every second for 20 seconds. Each time bleed is applied, the timer resets. Can stack up to 20 times and its damage ignores armor.

Corruption[]

  • T BuffIconPoison.png The Corruption status effect is a debuff that reduces the Player's maximum Health and Stamina. If the Player is wielding the Icon legendary 2h edge iron king sword.png Blackheart Blade or Icon legendary Ik 2h hammer.png Blackheart Hammer, maximum health and stamina is very quickly reduced to about 60% (if lacking the fourth Survival Perk). If fighting an enemy with a corrupted weapon, up to 50% of maximum health and stamina can be reduced at a rate of about 1 point per 5 seconds or completed successful attack upon the Player. The Corrupted status status remains after death and can only be removed by being Entertained, eating the Icon human heart.png Heart of a Hero, drinking Icon cleansing brew.png Cleansing Brew or wearing the Icon legendary ArenaMasterLeggings.png Champion's Leggings.
    • T BuffIconPoison.png Gaining Corruption - Is displayed when the Player is gaining corruption from an enemy's attacks. After 50% of the Player's health and stamina bar is filled with corruption, the Player can no longer gain further corruption, and this status effect will no longer be displayed.

    • T BuffIconPoison.png Medium Corruption - Is displayed when the corruption debuff has replaced between about 25-40% of the Player's health and stamina bar.
