Greeting, everyone! I'm sure many players, both new and old, find themselves looking at one effect icon or another and not knowing what it means. So I've taken the time to write out a list of the main buffs & debuffs, complete with a short description and their respective icons. I've already passed information on this to the Dev Team, and we'll be looking into implementing a similar list to the game as well. For the time being, feel free to refer anyone who is having trouble here.

Buffs


[Ally Protection]. The Caster Champion takes 25/50% of direct damage inflicted upon the Target Champion. Self-inflicted damage and Poison do not trigger this effect. Each Champion uses their respective DEF values for mitigating damage.


[Block Damage]. Makes the Champion immune to all forms of damage.


[Block Debuffs]. While this buff is active, the Champion is immune to all debuffs. Instant negative effect such as Decrease Turn Meter are not affected and work as normal.



[Continuous Heal]. Heals the target Champion by 7,5/15% of their MAX HP at the beginning of their Turn.



[Counterattack]. When attacked, the Champion with this buff strikes back at their attacker using their Default Skill. This attack deals 75% of the normal Default Skill damage. Can only counterattack once when attacked with a Multi-hit Skill. Does not counterattack in response to the enemy’s own counterattack. Does not count as a Turn.



[Increase ATK]. Increases the Champion’s Battle ATK (current ATK value, all other effects taken into account) by 25/50%



[Increase C.RATE]. Increases the Champion’s C.RATE by 15/30%



[Increase DEF]. Increases the Champion’s Battle DEF by 30/60%



[Increase SPD]. Increases the Champion’s Battle SPD by 15/30%



[Reflect Damage]. Any Champion attack a target with this buff will sustain 15/30% of the damage they inflicted with the attack.



[Revive On Death]. If a Champion with this buff dies, he or she will immediately be revived with 30% HP and 0% Turn Meter.



[Shield]. The Champion’s HP bar is reinforced for X Turns with a Shield effect. Damage is calculated normally but is first applied to the Shield (unless the attack ignores Shields, which is stated in the Skill description). When the buff expires or Shield value reaches 0, the Shield is removed and further damage applies as normal. Note: damage dealt to the shield does not count as damage dealt to the Champion, so effects such as Lifesteal do not benefit from it.



[Unkillable]. The Champion with this buff cannot fall below 1 HP for the entirety of its duration.


Debuffs



[Block Buffs]. All buffs that are applied to the Champion with this debuff are automatically blocked and have no effect.



[Block Cooldown Skills]. Prevents the Champion with debuff from using Active Skills other than their Default Skill for the duration of the debuff. Skill Cooldown of the affected Champion refreshes as normal.



[Block Heal]. Any healing received by the Champion with this debuff is reduced by 50/100%.



[Bomb]. When this debuff expires, the affected Champion suffers direct damage that ignores their DEF value. The damage inflicted by the bomb scales in accordance with the Stat indicated in the Skill description.



[Decrease ACC]. Reduces the Champion’s Battle ACC by 25/50%. 



[Decrease ATK]. Decreases the Champion’s Battle ATK by 25/50%



[Decrease DEF]. Decreases the Champion’s Battle DEF by 30/60%



[Decrease SPD]. Decreases the Champion’s Battle SPD by 15/30%



[Freeze]. The Champion with this debuff is unable to act X Turns. Cooldowns are not refreshed while [Freeze] is active. The Champion only receives 75% of incoming damage.



[HP Burn]. While the debuff is active and at the start of the affected Champion’s turn, they and all their allies take damage equal to 3% of their respective MAX HP. There can be only one [HP Burn] debuff active of a Champion at a time. However, if multiple Champions on the Team are debuffed with [HP Burn], all of these debuffs work as normal and apply their full damage.



[Leech]. Any Champion that attacks a Champion with this debuff heals for 10% of inflicted damage.



[Poison]. Damages the target Champion by 2,5/5% of their MAX HP at the beginning of their Turn. This damage is not affected by any other effects and only scales in accordance with the Target’s MAX HP. Block Damage blocks it. If the Target Champion has a Shield, Poison damage will be applied to the Shield first.



[Provoke]. The Champion with this debuff can only attack the Champion that applied it for X Turns, using their Default Skill.



[Sleep]. The Champion with this debuff is unable to act X Turns. Cooldowns are not refreshed while [Sleep] is active. Continuous Heal and Poison Effect work as normal while the Champion is debuffed with [Sleep], so do any Passive Skills that heal the Champion. Any incoming damage that the Champion receives automatically removes [Sleep].



[Stun]. The Champion with this debuff is unable to act X Turns. Cooldowns are not refreshed while [Stun] is active.



[Weaken]. Increases damage received by the Target Champion by 15/25%.


Special Effects: Minotaur's Labyrinth


[Rage]. While active, this buff increases the damage the Minotaur deals by 400%.



[Dazed]. While active, this debuff increases the damage the Minotaur receives by 200%. The duration of this debuff cannot be increased. 



[Hex]. Minotaur's [Tremor Stomp] Skill deals double damage to Champions with this debuff.



[Fear]. When a Champion with this Debuff attempts to use a Skill, there is a 50% chance that the Skill will not activate and the Champion will lose their turn.


[True Fear]. When a Champion with this Debuff attempts to use a Skill, there is a 50% chance that the Skill will not activate and the Champion will lose their turn. The Skill that they tried to use goes on cooldown.

Questions to those two:

[Counterattack] If a Relickeeper kills someone while Counterattacking, does he get an extra turn immediately?


Icreases  [Weaken]  the Poison /Burn HP Damage too?

No, killing a target while Counterattacking does not grant an extra turn. And Weaken does indeed increase Poison/HP Burn damage as well for the time being.




Update: added info on the Minotaur's special buffs and debuffs. As a number of people asked via different community channels.

Does that mean weaken is going to be changed so it doesn't increase HP Burn/Poison at some point?

Not really sure! In theory, it is not meant to as both of those effects by their description are only affected by the Target's MAX HP. But I've not been told of any solid plans to change that right now. So may it won't be at all! If it does get changed, it will be noted in the patch notes and we'll definitely look into the matter thoroughly before making any such decision.

[HP Burn]. While the debuff is active and at the start of the affected Champion’s turn, they and all their allies take damage equal to 3% of their respective MAX HP. There can be only one [HP Burn] debuff active of a Champion at a time. However, if multiple Champions on the Team are debuffed with [HP Burn], all of these debuffs work as normal and apply their full damage.

If the Target Champion has a Shield, Poison damage will be applied to the Shield first.


Poison 5% deals 25k. HP Burn 3% deals 75k to clan boss. Do we know why ?




[Weaken]. Increases damage received by the Target Champion by 15/25%.

poison and hp burn being "damage receviced" i assume weaken have to increase it.

thank you for adding this :) this is very helpful ... i wasn't sure what burn and leech were doing exactly :D


but i'm still confused ... why does hp burn do more damage to the boss than poison (even the 5%)? is it because of the rarity?

[Bomb]. When this debuff expires, the affected Champion suffers direct damage that ignores their DEF value. The damage inflicted by the bomb scales in accordance with the Stat indicated in the Skill description.



I`ve encontered few cases when Bomb was able to kill Champs under Unkillable debuff. Perhaps, it was about order in with this features expires. 1st expired Unkillable and then was expired Bomb? If so, I guess its a bug, because poison ticks before Unkillable expires. So its bug with Poison or with Bomb (if assume what buff-debuff features must have consistent mechanics)


Also its interesting how is Poison works with Fire Knight`s Shield. It didn`t do any dmg to F.Knight when he is under shield. And it`s doesn`t hurt the shield itself. I assume there is must be the bug in this case.


And thanks for detailed description of the mechanics!

I've actually reported something similar about Bombs and Block Damage, so it does seem like it might be a bug of some sort. I've tried to recreate it multiple times on the test server, but didn't manage - the obvious assumption that a Bomb applied before the Block Damage would get through it did not prove correct.


For the Fire Knight, I believe it is not as much a bug as a matter of mechanics of that boss. Only direct hits take off his Shield, and while the Shield is up, he is immune to debuffs and other effects.

But if he is immune to the debuffs effects, why weaken debuff works on him during shield is popped up?

And about bomb debuff - maybe in enemy team was a champion, who detonates the bombs despite their turn counter. Thats only assumption.

I'm getting wierd reports in my guild of Hp-Burn doing diffrent amouts of damage on the same (normal mode) Clan Boss.


50k, debuffed by unbooked 4* Unlucky (Skeleton horde, rare)

75k, debuffed by unbooked 5*Kallia (barbarian, epic)

And 90k, debuffed by fully-booked 5*Kallia (barbarian, epic)


So it does seem to be increased by something else than max Boss Hp, which was always the same.

Could you please enligthen us?
