Types of ground effects

Mechanics

Detrimental ground effects do not affect allies of the character that created them, while those ground effects created by monsters or the environment will not affect other monsters. The inverse is true for beneficial ground effects.

Characters and monsters can be affected simultaneously by different types of overlapping ground effects. Those of the same type do not cumulatively stack their effects. For ground effects that inflict damage, only one of each type with the highest damage per second will cause damage at any given moment.

'Flying' monsters, including Raging Spirits and Watchers, are not affected by certain ground effects that lie close to the ground. Other ground effects, such as those that consist of vapor or smoke, can influence monsters above the ground as well.[1]
