Dispel removes certain buffs or debuffs from the target. In most cases, dispelling an ally unit removes debuffs (negative effects, red border) and dispelling an enemy removes buffs (positive effects, green border), but there are some dispels that remove both Buffs & Debuffs. Only a few dispels remove stuns. In addition, certain status effects cannot be removed at all (blue border), unless explicitly specified.

Transfer[edit | edit source]

Certain abilities can transfer buffs and/or debuffs from one unit to another: The following abilities possess this ability:

In practice, transfer functions like a dispel. It generally follows the same rules as dispel does, but a few status effects cannot be transferred.
