The vast majority of the player's options for interacting with monsters have immediate results. If you want to introduce delayed effects (which status ailments already are), then I really think saving throws need to be removed as a concept. Either a monster is immune, or they are 100% susceptible, and status effects are scaled so that this isn't unbalanced.
Totally agree. Maybe a place for it if ranged attacks get nerfed, or there were better options for a more device-reliant strategy.
