Potion Buffs/Debuffs

Buffs and Debuffs are temporary character effects applied by some abilities, sets, potions, and champion perks. Buffs are beneficial, and debuffs are detrimental. Two buffs/debuffs with the same name from different sources will not stack, though a Major and Minor buff of the same type will.

This system was designed to prevent massive “buff stacking” and encourage the use of a larger variety of skills. Before this change, players could stack multiple Armor buffs, and get their Armor really high even without actually wearing Heavy Armor. Now, with the new buff system in place, you can have a maximum of one major and one minor Armor buff active at any one time. So to increase your Armor even further you would have to use another technique like Heavy Armor or the Champion System.

This system also means that buffs and debuffs are now set at a standard. As an example all of the major Spell Damage buffs give the same increase of Spell Damage and it does not matter which skill this buff comes from. This works the same way for all buffs and debuffs. This was changed to help balance Class and Weapon Skills.
