What are boss modifiers?

The main world bosses that you encounter to finish each World of Remnant 2 are static. However, some other bosses that you encounter in dungeons can have a variety of different buffs and effects on them. These changing effects are known as boss modifiers.

These modifiers make the gameplay difficult and intense or fun if you like to play hardcore.
