An Example of Buff Stacking

An enhancement to a character's statistics for a period of time. Buffs can come from items, profession skills, or even from NPCs.

Each buff has a category that they fit into. Most buffs in that same category cannot be activated at the same time. Activating another buff in the same category will either cancel out the first buff of that category, or not allow you to activate the buff. Also, buffs in the same category usually have the same reuse timer. So, even if the buff from the same category has expired, the reuse timer from that buff may prevent you from using another buff in the same category.

Category A[]

Except where noted, these buffs cannot be used together. Wild force shards have their own cooldown timer and use the Stim buff slot.
