If the character has a chance to block\reflect combat arts, then successfully hitting from the chain lightning does not necessarily mean that all of the buffs will be removed. For each attempt to remove buffs (lightning may remove from 1 to 3 buffs, it depends on the level of the CA). Also, chance to block\reflect is calculated anew: lightning, when successfully having passed the test and passing block\reflection, can cause damage, but may not remove any buff or may only deactivate one or two of them. Buffs are removed in reverse order from the third buff slot back to the first.

Removing Buffs

Some enemies in game have the ability to disable a player's buffs such as the White Griffin's or a champion Dark Fairies lightening attack. This is typically referred to as a "De-Buff"(de=deactivate).

Some examples of things which may remove buffs in the game are:

- selected traps (Abishai summons them for example)
- chain ice lightning (some champions and White Griffin)
- CAs (Combat Arts) of the some characters such as "Archimedes Beam" with gold "Annul" modification, Expulse magic, Dryad's Black Curse with gold "Dispel" modification.

If the character has a chance to block\reflect combat arts, then successfully hitting from the chain lightning does not necessarily mean that all of the buffs will be removed. For each attempt to remove buffs (lightning may remove from 1 to 3 buffs, it depends on the level of the CA). Also, chance to block\reflect is calculated anew: lightning, when successfully having passed the test and passing block\reflection, can cause damage, but may not remove any buff or may only deactivate one or two of them. Buffs are removed in reverse order from the third buff slot back to the first.

The buff removing effects of Expulse Magic can not be blocked or reflected; Expulse Magic doesn't save a character from removing the buffs from an enemy's EM circle. (see more about removing buffs mechanics in players contributed guides section)


De-buff as a magic effect

Monsters and characters can apply various effects, reducing different characteristics (movement/cast/attack speed, defense/attack value; damage mitigation may be lowered, armor value can be inverted). De-buff duration depends on this type - de-buffs are divided into short (10 sec), long (30 sec) и custom (duration depends here on CA's level and modifications, custom de-buffs are typically used by characters).

Not Included here are things like Detrimental Magic Effects and Stun, because they have their own mechanics (please see corresponding sections).

De-buffs cannot be removed by anything except Expulse magic Combat art, which can be used by High Elf and some bosses.

There is no any modifiers/defenses/immunities against de-buffs, power and its duration can not be reduced.

Several different de-buffs stack, so an enemy can suffer from several effects at the same time. However, only one graphical effect is displayed at a time.

Similar de-buffs don't usually stack, but they may, if the first and the second similar de-buffs have a different power/duration. Reducing attack value modifications for the High Elf's's Combat Arts "Frost Flare" and "Raging Nimbus" are added together cumulatively (layer-wise). For example, 120 Combat Art level "Frost Flare" and 105 Combat Art level "Raging Nimbus", used on the same enemy, will reduce target attack value by 66% at first and by 61% secondly. The final target attack value = x*0.34*0.39 = 0.13*x Due to the peculiarities of a chance to hit calculation. This means that the chance that the High Elf will be hit by enemies would be 3-4 times less. In order to effectively stack them, a player must use Combat Arts with a difference of not less than 0.1 Combat Art level.
