Another status to watch is Injured, as it affects both you and your enemies! To learn more, continue reading to discover what the Injured stat does in Diablo 4.

Injured Stat in Diablo 4 Explained

Injured is a status effect you gain after going below 35 percent of your maximum health points. Both you and your enemies can get this debuff, and while you can benefit from targeting injured enemies, being Injured will help your enemies. Make sure to watch your health.

This stat differs from Healthy, a status effect that applies when your health is above 80 percent. Some abilities buff you while you’re healthy, while others deal increased damage against Injured enemies.

In other words, drink plenty of potions and watch everyone’s health bars!
