PPQ:Conditions

From Puyo Nexus Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Conditions (状態) are status effects applied to cards and enemies within quests and battles in Puyo Puyo!! Quest. Conditions may be applied to either player cards or enemies, with the use of skills or by stage effects.

Conditions Basics

Enemy Conditions dialogue box

Infliction of conditions can largely come in two methods:

  • Directly inflicted, through skills, leader skills and stage effects; or,
  • Inflicted as aftermath of an attack
    • Note that if a condition-inflicting attack is modified by another existing condition, how the conditions are inflicted may also be affected. See the relevant sections for details.

Cards that are inflicted with conditions will have icons overlaid on them. Conditions that are temporary also have the remaining number of turns/effective times on the icons. The icons can appear on the top-right, bottom-left or bottom-right corners dependent on their types. If a card is inflicted with multiple conditions that appears on the same spot, those icons will cycle one-by-one every few seconds.

Besides checking the icons, players can also tap and hold on an enemy card to show the Enemy Conditions (あいての状態) dialogue box, which shows all conditions currently effective on that enemy, along with their leader skill. This can be especially useful in Technical Maps and Guild Rush events, where enemies may have over 10 conditions including permanent color resistances and Ailment resistances.

Effects of multiple inflictions of the same condition are not stackable. Different conditions have different rules in dealing with duplicated inflictions. See the relevant sections for details.

Ailments

Ailments (状態異常) are abnormal conditions inflicted on cards. Icons for Ailments are put on the top-right corner of the inflicted cards.

Fury

Cards
inflicting
Fury.png

Fury (怒り) causes the attacks dealt by the inflicted card to miss at a 50% chance, and doubles the damage taken. For mass attacks and consecutive attacks, whether each hit will miss is independent from each other.

Before ver. 3.5.0, the chance of missing was not specified, and there was no damage taken increase effect.

See section below for additional points to note about damage taken increase effect from Ailments.

Fear

Cards
inflicting
Fear.png

Fear (怯え) halves the attack power and doubles the damage taken of the inflicted card.

See section below for additional points to note about damage taken increase effect from Ailments.

Confusion

Cards
inflicting
Confuse.png

Confusion (混乱) causes all attacks dealt by the inflicted card to land on the same side. If the attack is condition-inflicting, the condition is also inflicted to that same-side target. If inflicted on player cards, skill activation from the inflicted card is also disabled.

The effect of Confusion inflicted on enemy cards is not counted by the number of turns, but by the number of times effective. For special attack modes:

  • Normal attacks of side-color cards: two times
  • Mass attacks (both skill-based or normal): one time for all attacks
  • Skill-based consecutive attacks: one time for all attacks

Before ver. 3.5.0, the Confusion effect was only effective at a chance (unspecified), and was counted by number of turns on enemy cards as well.

An example of Confusion

Paralysis

Cards
inflicting
Stun.png

Paralysis (麻痺) stops the inflicted card from attacking, but the manner varies with depending on which side is inflicted:

  • if inflicted on enemy cards, the turn countdown will stop
  • if inflicted on player cards, all attacks and skill activation from the inflicted card are disabled

Other than expiring after a designated number of turns, Paralysis is also removed when the inflicted card suffers any damage. The hit that removes Paralysis will land 3× damage (not applicable for Poison Poison or Parasite Parasite).

Before ver. 3.5.0, there was no damage taken increase effect.

See section below for additional points to note about damage taken increase effect from Ailments.

Poison

Cards
inflicting
Poison.png

Cards inflicted with Poison () will suffer purple damage proportional to the respective cards' maximum HP at the end of their turn.

Poison inflicted from player cards cause 5% damage per turn. Enemy skills on the other hand may inflict Poison of other damage rates between 1% through 50% depending on the quest/event.

The damage increase effect in Fury Fury, Fear Fear and Paralysis Paralysis is not applicable to the damage from Poison, but the damage cut effect in Purple Shield Purple Shield is applicable.

Poison and Parasite Parasite are both effective when inflicted at the same time, in which case the Poison damage is dealt first then the Parasite Parasite damage/heal.

An example of Poison

Seal

Cards
inflicting
Block.png

Seal (封印) disables all attacks and skill activation from the inflicted card. While unable to attack, Puyos cleared will still be counted to the inflicted card's Puyo Left to Skill as normal. The inflicted card can still recover HP through clearing Heart Boxes, achieving All Clears or benefiting from other cards' skills.

Fullseal.png

Previously, there existed a different Seal Ailment with a blue cross icon instead of the red cross icon, known unofficially as Complete Seal (完全封印). When inflicted on a leader or supporter card, this Ailment also disables the card's leader skill, in addition to all attacks and skill activation. This Ailment is only used in the Endless Quest 1 event, and is never used in game ever again afterwards.

Skill Seal

Cards
inflicting
Skillblock.png

Skill Seal (スキル封印) causes the inflicted card unable to activate skills, and stops the card's Puyo Left to Skill to count down. The inflicted card can still engage in normal attacks, or participate in skills activated by other cards (including field transform and rally attacks).

Skill Seal can only be inflicted on player cards. Although it is inflicted by enemy skills in most cases, some player cards (see category) has skills that inflict Skill Seal on themselves or allies as recoil.

Parasite

Cards
inflicting
Parasite.png

Cards inflicted with Parasite (やどり木) will suffer colorless damage at the end of their turn to recover HP of all opponents. Both the damage and the HP recovered is proportional to the respective cards' maximum HP. The damage increase effect in Fury Fury, Fear Fear and Paralysis Paralysis is not applicable to the damage from Parasite.

Parasite has a 0.1% damage rate and 10% recovery rate.

Parasite and Poison Poison are both effective when inflicted at the same time, in which case the Poison Poison damage is dealt first then the Parasite damage/heal.

Fatigue

Cards

Fatigue.png

Fatigue (脱力) increases the damage taken by the inflicted card to 2.5×. After Fatigue expires, the inflicted card regains its strength and gains 1 turn of Attack Up Attack Up (1.5×).

See section below for additional points to note about damage taken increase effect from Ailments.

Feigned

Cards
inflicting
Feigned.png

Feigned (まやかし) causes the attacks dealt by the inflicted card to miss at a chance (not officially specified). Even if landed, the attacks would not be able to inflict additional effects (including conditions, Ailments and Puyo Left to Skill Up).

For the purposes of the Feigned Ailment, Toughness-penetrating hits, explosive hits and critical hits do not count as additional effects.

Frozen

Cards
inflicting

Stat Modifiers (collective name not official) changes the stats of the inflicted card. Icons for Stat Modifiers are put on the bottom-left corner of the inflicted cards.

Some Stat Modifiers have their strengths dependent on certain factors (e.g. number of colors among cards at the front, number of specific field pieces) instead of a fixed value. The strength of the effect is determined at infliction, and will not change even if the factors change afterwards.

Note that these conditions have different effects on player cards when under Attack/Recovery Switch leader skills or stage effects.

When multiple inflictions of the same conditions, only the infliction with highest effective rate is effective, while the turn number on the condition icon will show that with the longest remaining duration. See table on the right for an illustration.

Attack Up

Cards
inflicting
Attack up.png

Attack Up (攻撃力アップ) increases the Attack stat of the inflicted card. In player card skills, the increase rate is usually denoted by a multiple.

Cond atkup.png
Cond atkup0.png

Instead of the Attack stat of the card, Conditional Attack Up (条件付き攻撃力アップ) increases the power of the attack when the attack satisfies a designated condition. Thus, attacks that references HP or Recovery stats (e.g. certain direct attack skills and inflictions of Attack Mode modifiers) can also fully receive the benefit.

The icon for Conditional Attack Up is normally grey (right); when the condition is satisfied and the increment activated the icon will turn red.

Under Attack/Recovery Switch leader skills or stage effects, the recover amount from heart box clears and/or All Clear is increased instead of the damage dealt when the condition is satisfied. This means Conditional Attack Up is generally useless for direct attack skills.

Common conditions for activation include:

  • Number of colors attacking at the same time
  • Chain achieved
  • Number of puyos popped at the same time
  • Whether a certain color is attacking
  • When All Clear is achieved in Large Chain Chance

Reflection

Cards
inflicting
Mirror red.png

Cards inflicted with Reflection (反射) reflect same-color attacks back to the attacker at a rate proportional to the incoming attack power. No damage will be taken by the inflicted card. Reflected condition-inflicting attacks will also inflict the condition back onto the attacker instead. For special attacks:

  • Condition-inflicting attack: the condition is also reflected back to the attacker
  • Percentage attacks: damage dealt is calculated with the maximum HP of the target (not the attacker)

If the attack target is inflicted with both Reflection and Fury Fury or Feigned Feigned, the reflected attacks will have a chance to miss.

An example of Reflection, used by Sans

Undertake

Cards
inflicting
Shield.png

Cards inflicted with Undertake (かばい/肩がわり) will step forward to take incoming attacks from enemies in place for other cards.

Undertake also comes with a damage taken reduction effect (75% on player cards and 99% on enemy cards), except for fixed colorless attacks and percentage attacks.

If multiple cards are inflicted with Undertake at the same time, the leftmost card will have the priority to take incoming attacks.

An example of Undertake, used by Kashi of the Fire Gate

Barrier

Cards
inflicting
Barrier.png

Barrier (バリア) reduces any damage taken by the inflicted card. The effect of Barrier is usually denoted by a percentage.

The strength of some inflictions of Barrier is dependent on certain factors (e.g. number of specific field pieces) instead of a fixed value. Unlike Stat Modifiers, the strength of the Barrier effect is determined at the point when the damage is dealt. Notably, when facing enemy attacks that is accompanied with a field reset, the strength of field piece-dependent Barrier effect is determined by the field after reset.

The damage taken reduction effect in Barrier is stackable with Red ShieldBlue ShieldGreen ShieldYellow ShieldPurple Shield Color Shield.

Counter

Cards
inflicting
Counter.png

Cards inflicted with Counter (カウンター) will deal a counter-attack back to the attacker for every incoming attack taken, unless it is knocked out by the attack(s).

The icon for Self-destruction is normally dark blue; when the Self-destruction count is down to 1 the icon will turn red (right).

Currently, the condition is only inflicted by enemy cards onto itself; self-destruction effect from player card skills happens immediately and no condition is inflicted.

When inflicted with Self-destruction, the inflicted card will lose the turn number (which could affect auto-targeting by least turn number). All Ailments will be removed from the inflicted card and no new Ailments can be inflicted on that card any more.

Auto-recovery

Cards
inflicting
Autorcv2.png

Auto-recovery (自動回復) recovers HP to the inflicted card at the end of their turn. The HP recovery can be either a fixed amount or proportional to the maximum HP of the inflicted card.

Auto-cleanse

Cards
inflicting
Autoclns.png

Auto-cleanse (自動状態異常解除 lit. automatic Ailment removal) removes all Ailments from the inflicted card at the end of their turn.

For Ailments that inflict additional conditions at expiry (Fatigue Fatigue and Frozen Frozen), the additional condition begins counting at the removal of the original Ailment. For instance when on the player side, one turn of the additional condition is spent from the end of player-side action to the end of enemy action.

Recovery Block

Recovery Block (回復不能) disables any HP recovery on the inflicted card. It is currently unable to be inflicted by player card skills.

Cleanse Block

Cleanse Block (状態異常解除不能 lit. Ailment removal disabled) causes all currently inflicted Ailments unable to be removed by player skills, Field Effects or Auto-cleanse Auto-cleanse. It is currently unable to be inflicted by player card skills.

Inversion Shield
