A debuff is the opposite of a buff. Whereas a buff benefits the recipient a debuff causes a negative effect to the recipient. A player uses an Active skill or a Luna Chip to cast a debuff on a target. Common debuffs include:

  • those from using Luna Chips
  • Wrath
  • those from magic attacks by boss mobs or from other players


A debuff may either decrease an attribute of the target or inflict a negative status effect.

List of Negative Status EffectsEdit

BleedEdit

-Bleeding stops HP Regeneration and causes Damage Over Time. One example of a skill that gives bleeding is:

-Piercing Arrow(Strider/Shadow Hunter/Dead Eye)

BlindEdit

Target may not attack for a period of time. Movement is still available. Examples of skills which give this effect:


DOTEdit

An abbreviation that stands for "damage over time". For a period of time, this effect will cause a specific amount of damage stated in the skill description per interval of time which is also stated in the skill description. Each individual amount of damage done by the effect is commonly referred to as the damage per "tick" (as in the tick an antique clock makes). An example would be a skill which has a duration of 12 seconds and does 100 damage at intervals of 2 seconds. In this example, the "tick" would be 2 seconds, and the "damage per tick" would be 100. The total number of ticks would be 12 seconds / 2 seconds per tick = 6 ticks. The total damage done by the effect would then be 100 damage per tick * 6 ticks = 600 damage. The damage done by a DOT is not affected by the defense of the target. The individual ticks can: cause critical damage, interrupt or cancel casting, and uncloak an assassin. This is one of the most common effects given by player skills. Examples of skills which give this effect:


FearEdit

Target loses control of all abilities and movement for a period of time. During the effect, the target moves in random directions. The target may not attack or use skills. The target may be attacked.

KnockbackEdit

Not specifically a status effect as there is no debuff icon for skills which have this effect. It causes the target to be pushed back a certain distance stated in the skill description. During the period of time that the target is in the process of being pushed back, the target has no control over movement. The duration of this effect is often stated in the skill description. Examples of skills which give this effect:


PetrificationEdit

Also commonly referred to as stone status. Attacks, skills, and movement are unavailable to the target for a period of time. Outside of sieges, the target may not be attacked during the duration of the effect; however, all damage effects in place before the status effect continue to do damage (such as DOT effects).
