A Buff is a positive effect on players and NPCs that lasts for a predetermined amount of time. Buffs are usually applied to characters by: using items, using skills, gathering from nodes, and can be given to you by other characters.

Buffs usually increase a characters HP, MP, or stats. Sometimes a buff has no immediate effect, but merely prevents debuffs from being applied, resurrects a character when dead, or shows a special effect.

Here are a few examples of buffs:

Debuff Edit

Conversely, a Debuff is a negative effect on players and NPCs that lasts for a predetermined amount of time. Debuffs are usually applied to characters by: using skills and fighting BAMs, Mobs and other players.

Debuffs usually reduce a characters HP, MP, or stats. They may also immobilize or silence a character. Sometimes a debuff has no immediate effect, but will lead to a worse debuff unless cleansed.

Here are a few examples of debuffs:

  • Lancers can cast Menacing Wave on an opponent, decreasing their movement and attack speed by 15%.
  • Getting hit by one of Shandra Manaya's attacks will give you the debuff Argonic Metastasis, which can turn into System Seizure and kill the player.
  • Priests can cast Plague of Exhaustion on opponents to remove all buffs and inflict damage for 15 seconds.

Examples of Use Edit

  • You could say, "Thanks for the buff."
  • Someone could warn you, "Don't get hit or you'll get a horrible debuff."
