Intents are symbols floating over the heads of enemies that indicate what that enemy will do on their turn.

If the enemy is attacking, the attack damage and number of attacks will be provided. In most cases this is exactly reliable, and is adjusted debuffs such as Icon Vulnerable.png Vulnerable on the player and Icon Weak.png Weak on the enemy.

The relic RunicDome.png Runic Dome renders the player unable to see the intent, although cards like Spot Weakness and Go for the Eyes still glow yellow if an enemy's intent would trigger their effect.
