Blightis a damage over time status effect similar to bleed. Heroes and enemies affected by blight will take health damage equal to the strength of the blight at the start of their turn. Most blights in the game last for 3 turns, or 5 turns if applied with a critical hit.
During camping, every hero (except Flagellant) can remove blight from other heroes with a shared camping skill Wound Care; the Plague Doctor can cure blight from another hero with her skill Leeches, or from herself with Self-Medicate, and the Flagellant can cure blight on himself with Lash's Kiss. The Shieldbreaker can increase her Blight Resist with her Adder's Embrace.
Blight, like bleed, can kill a character on Death's Door before they can use an Antivenom on their turn. If out of combat, there will be a chance to use Food or Antivenom to prevent death, as long as the party does not move.

Blight Resist[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
According to the characters in-game, blight is excruciatingly painful and causes a burning sensation. It is unclear whether blight actually burns the afflicted, but its effectiveness against enemies made primarily of bone or stonework (and thus lacking organs to suffer from poisoning) reinforces the implication that it is corrosive.
