In RPG Maker MV, you can make a state that lasts one turn and wears off the next. However, in a battle system where multiple turns and/or actions can suddenly wear off an effect, it may become rather awkward to decide when a particular state wears off. Such is the case for an effect that gives a character a One Time Half MP Cost effect. While setting it to last one action would work, if the next action is a non-MP cost skill, the state would still wear off. Here is how to mitigate that.
