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

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.

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.

Mana Rift
