Max HP Down is a harmful status effect that weakens players until it wears off or is removed. Afflicted characters have their maximum hit points reduced, giving them a much smaller pool than they used to have. When afflicted by powerful monsters, this effect can be devastating (e.g. a Paladin with 700/950 HP could be reduced to 200/200 HP).

How to remove the effect

  • The White Magic spell Erase will remove this effect
  • Esuna while under the effect of Afflatus Misery does remove the effect as well.
  • The Dancer ability Healing Waltz will remove this effect.
  • Even after removed, the HP level when afflicted stays as it was (e.g. the above Paladin would have 200/950 HP right after having it removed).
