Field effects are special statuses that affect all allies and all foes simultaneously. During raid battles, field effects apply to all parties.
About Field Effects
No more than two global field effects can be active at once. When two global field effects are already active, at least one must end before another field effect can be deployed. Existing effects cannot be overwritten by stronger effects or extended by the same effects. If a quest has multiple waves, field effects do not carry over to subsequent waves. Icons appear in the upper left corner of the screen when field effects are active in battle. Tap the icons to see more information.
Local field effects, such as , only affect the caster's battle while active. Local field effects can be deployed even when two global field effects are already active. Only one local field effect can be active at a time. Attempting to deploy a second while one is already active has no effect. Local field effects usually also change the battle background while active, though this is purely cosmetic.

Characters whose skills can take advantage of the respective boost are marked in the character selection screen and favored for auto-selection.
