Debuffs are adjustments to monster stats that change eg. how much damage the creature takes or how fast it attacks. Most debuffs are visually represented by an icon or animation in front of or under the monster.
If the debuffing ability has stacks, the icon will include some connotation of the stacks. This may be a number of bars, a numeric overlay, a change of colors, or the icon changing from empty to full.
Below is an overview of all the debuff overlays in the game.
The Icon is how this debuff appears in-game.
The Ability Name is the name of the ability that applies the debuff.
Applied by lists the Champion who uses the ability.
Global will tell how it might interact. Some debuffs only help the Champion that applied the debuff (Personal), aid only certain positions in the formation (Positional), and some will help all Champions (+). Some don't affect Champions at all (-).
Sticky indicates that the Champion that uses the ability may be swapped out for another Champion; the applied debuff will persist regardless (yes). It may persist regardless of the creating Champion, but in both cases wears of after a specific number of seconds (timer). Non-sticky debuffs (-) will vanish the moment the Champion is removed or swapped from the party.
