"Immune to being inflicted with bad status effects, including death and dispel."
―Bless' hover-over tip, Epic Battle Fantasy 4
Status Bless
Bless is a positive status effect introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. Its icon is a four-leaf clover. It serves as an "anti-status ailment" effect: a Blessed character is immune to be inflicted with most negative status effects, including (but not limited to) Dispel, Doom and Instant Death.
  • Bless does not clear already inflicted status effects, neither it can shield from their effects.
    • As an exception, Bless can negate Doom's Death effect.
  • It also doesn't affect self-induced statuses, such as Bone Armor's Curse or Legend's Tired.
  • Neither it affects stat debuffs.
  • Out of neutral/multi-purpose statuses, Bless can block Wet and most instances of Berserk. The latter has two exceptions: the Berserk skill, which bypasses any resistances when used on a playable character, and all enemy skills that apply Berserk on the user, such as Tanuki Dog's alcoheal, for similar reason.
  • Blocking status infliction doesn't drain Bless' length.

Like most status effects, it vanishes after the battle, upon death (except if with Auto-Revive), or after a number of turns. As it cannot be Dispelled, the only way to get rid of it on a foe is to wait for it to wear off with time.

Stats before the Battle Mountain update are listed in brackets.

Bless is available to the players through the following skills and equipment:

  • Oak Staff (staff, BM Premium only) may inflict the status on the user — up to 50% chance and 2x length.
  • Pink Flower (female hat) may inflict the status on the user — up to 50% chance and 1x length.
  • Clover Pin (flair) may inflict the status on the user — up to 40% chance and 1x length.
