List of Buffs and Debuffs

RAID: Shadow Legends has a lot of positive effects (called “buffs”) that can be used or applied on a Champion, teammate or enemy targets as well as lots of negative effects (called “debuffs”). Knowing what which buff or which debuff does and and when, will help you build a team to tackle the current battle you are facing.

Buffs

A buff is the common name given to any positive effect applied on a target in a RPG (Role-Playing Game). In RAID: Shadow Legends, buffs will always be represented inside a blue square. Each buff has a specific icon helping you identify the buff applied.

Debuff

A debuff is the common name given to any negative effect applied on a target in a RPG. In RAID: Shadow Legends, buffs will always be represented inside a red square. Each debuff has a specific icon helping you identify the debuff applied.
