Conditions

From bg3.wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Conditions are changes in a character's status, both beneficial and harmful. They can be inflicted by certain Spells, class features, surfaces and other environmental hazards, etc. Many conditions are temporary, and some can also be removed with the right spell or potion.

Stack ID[edit | edit source]

All conditions have a stack ID that are not visible in-game. Two conditions with the same stack ID cannot be applied at the same time. It is for example not possible to have Hastened Hastened, Celestial Haste Celestial Haste and/or Haste Spores Haste Spores at the same time since they all have the stack ID HASTE. What happens when applying the same condition again or a applying a condition with the same stack ID, is decided by the stack type and/or stack priority of the condition you are applying.

Stack type[edit | edit source]

Stack type determines what happens when applying a condition, when that same condition or a condition with the same stack ID is already present. This tells you which condition you will end up with if you try to apply multiple conditions of the same stack ID, and tells you which conditions can be added on top of each other for increased duration.

There are four different stack types:

Stack
The new condition is applied separately, allowing multiple instances of the same condition.
Ignore
The new condition is not applied, and the present stays as it is keeping its current duration. Often used by equipment variation of conditions, e.g. if you have Barkskin until long rest and equip the Barkskin Armour, the condition from the armour will not replace the one you have until long rest.
Overwrite
The present condition is replaced by the new one. E.g. if you have Hastened from drinking a Potion of Speed and drink another one, you will replace the condition you currently have, immediately making you Lethargic Lethargic.
Additive
The duration of the new condition is added onto the duration of the already present condition. E.g. if a creature as 1 turn of Radiating Orb remaining and receives it again for 2 turns, it will have 3 turns remaining.

Duration[edit | edit source]

The duration of a condition is determined by the source the condition is applied from. Some conditions do not have durations. This may be conditions that are active based on something else, like a passive feature or standing near something. The condition Lightly Obscured Lightly Obscured is a condition that doesn't have a duration, instead it is automatically applied if you are Hiding Hiding in a place with little light, and is automatically removed when not hiding anymore. There are also conditions that don't lose duration over time. This may be conditions that lose duration as a result of something else, like Arcane Ward Arcane Ward which loses duration when you are hit. Conditions also don't lose duration if you are in dialogue or a cutscene. However, this only counts for character that are part of the dialogue/cutscene and not just listening in.

Tick type is a mechanic that determines when a condition loses its duration. When you are outside turn-based mode or combat mode, one turn is 6 seconds.

Tick type[edit | edit source]

Tick type determines when a condition loses its duration, which most of the time is either at the start or end of the creatures turn. Tick type is not displayed in-game.

The different tick types are:

StartTurn
The condition loses its duration at the start of the creature's turn.
EndTurn
The condition loses its duration at the end of the creature's turn. An example of this is Blade Ward. If a creature applies a condition like this to itself that lasts for 1 turn it will lose that condition as soon as soon as it ends its turn, for example using Action Surge Action Surge.
StartRound
The condition loses its duration at the start of the round. The start of the round happens before the first creature in the initiative order starts its turn.
EndRound
The condition loses its duration at the end of the round. The end of the round happens after the last creature in the initiative order ends its turn.

Some conditions have special properties that make them behave in different ways like initiating combat or not losing duration over time.
