Mobs can also buff themselves (did you really think only you could do that?). Here are some of them.


Many mobs have brief-duration debuffs that can slow you or decrease your resistances to their other attacks.



Snake Bind

It is the nature of snakes to bind up their prey.


Like the name says, this prevents you from using any Skill with a vocal component which includes most spells. The duration is usually very brief.

Source of Chaos

Reduces casting speed, attack speed and movement speed.


Lowers your Strength.


Damage Over Time. These attacks do a small amount of damage every few seconds of a period of time, such as Poison attacks. Some of the can be cured by an alert healer.

Snake Venom

A Strong Snake Venom that deals 250 dmg every 2 seconds for 10 seconds.

Spider Venom

Corpse Poison

500 dmg every 2 secs and reduces attack power and attack speed.

Direct Damage

Area Attacks

Commonly called AEs, these do damage to all players within the Area of Effect.



We do not know what this does. It may be a Snare, reducing your movement rate.


Instantly rushes the mob to you. He cannot be damaged or bespelled while charging. Opening with a stun attack may prevent him from doing this.

Cure Injuries

Instantly heals the caster and may also remove a DoT or Debuff from him (such as a Poison attack).

Desperate Rescue

We don't know what this does as we have always killed the rommon before he could complete the casting time. It is probably a heal or it allows him to fight on for a short time after his HP reaches zero.

Mana Rift

Drains Mana slowly over time, so long as the mob continues to chant. Silence or Interrupt him to stop it.
