Buffs and Debuffs are temporary character effects applied by some abilities, sets, potions, and champion perks. Buffs are applied to yourself or your allies, and debuffs are applied to enemies. Two buffs/debuffs with the same name from different sources will not stack, though a Major and Minor buff of the same type will. Debuffs can be removed by certain skills or items with cleansing effects.
