There are many afflictions that may befall adventurers in Achaea, each one unique in its effects. While most are detrimental, some may actually be considered advantageous under certain circumstances. Such afflictions are often considered defences, such as deafness and blindness.

A comprehensive list of cures for afflictions may be found on the Cures page.

Afflictions include any of the altered states of mind and body brought on by venoms, curses, psychic manipulation, and various other abilities used by combatants and creatures. The ring of pestilence is an enchantment that will target its victim with a random affliction.

As is natural, every ailment has a corresponding cure, whether it be an herb, salve, or elixir. The powerful Tree of Life tattoo can also cure almost all afflictions, as could the Priest skill of Healing (formerly), and lifestone. The worry stone, gem of negation and the necklace of purity are enchantments that also cure afflictions.
