Status Effects are negative conditions in Paladins. They usually affect the targeted champions with some kind of penalty, and the effect wears off over time or by moving out of the affected area. Most status effects can be removed or mitigated with certain cards, items or skills.
These effects are divided into two categories: Debuffs (status effects that dimish statistics and/or deal damage over time) and Crowd Control (status effects that directly limit a champion's actions). Hard Crowd Control effects such as Stuns or Silences will completely prevent certain or all actions, and will interrupt channeled skills.

Status Effects Reduction[edit | edit source]
There are several means of reducing the effectivity of debuffs and/or crowd control effects or even nullifying them entirely. Some champion skills and cards reduce the duration or strength of certain effects while others provide a temporary immunity to some or all of them.
The item called Resilience reduces the duration of crowd control effects.
Diminishing returns[edit | edit source]
Diminishing returns is a mechanic that makes many different types of effects (including crowd control effects) less effective when stacked up or reused on a recently affected target.
