The status effects bar in the interface should have hover text that briefly describes what the status effect whose name you're hovering your cursor over does to you.

Reasoning: Newbie-friendliness and quality of life. There are a lot of status effects. Some of them aren't very common, and even veteran players can't be expected to remember what they all do. In live combat in particular, it's easy for the message that says what your latest status effect does to get scrolled off the page, and if you stop to check the wiki in live combat, you're probably going to lose.

This ought to be fairly straightforward to add, the majority of the work is in writing up the hover text.

I agree this feature would be most useful and newbie friendly. I struggled at the start with status's and what they did. It would save trips to the wiki too.
