Poison, Bleed, Ignite, chill, curse, and shock are the six available ailments in Godfall. The perfect ailment build features a combination of these ailments.

  • Bleed: Increases physical damage and damage over time
  • Poison: deal more overall damage by increasing the duration of the damage over time
  • Ignite: deal more damage, but the damage over time will decrease to some extent
  • Chill: decrease attack speed, movement speed, and damage over time
  • Shock: Increase the incoming breach damage
  • Curse: decrease the damage taken from nearby enemies
