    Hello,

    Does anyone have a list of debuffs and their resulting actions?

    EG: Blind : Monitor vision reduced by a hazy smoke making it difficult to see.

    Blind is not a debuff it's a CC.
    CC Devspeak

    It can be both!

    CC = the type of spell (a crowd control spell)
    Debuff = the negative effect that it leaves on you

    So it can be a CC with a debuff, so his point still stands.

    Well known debuffs with CC abilities are:
    Freeze
    Slow
    Root
    etc.
    etc.

    You'll get the picture.
    The ones we know so far are:
    Disarm (weapons drops near you and you have to retrieve it. Comes back after a certain period of time automatically)
    Stunn (can't do anything, you'll have little starrs above your head)
    Blind (Monitor vision reduced by a hazy smoke making it difficult to see.)
    Burn (your character burns for a while, taking Y damage for X amount of seconds, shown as if your character is on fire)
    Freeze
    Slow
    Knocked down (same as stunn, but your character also falls over for a brief period of time, you'll still get the stars)
    Dissoriƫnt (rearranges your controls, left = right, up = right etc. etc. gives you little question marks around your head)
    Silence
    Thetered

    I'll add more (+ some of the missing descriptions) when I have them....but it's the next day here already and I still need to go to bed....so cya tommorow :D

    CC - removes full control of the character from the player
    Debuff- reduces character stats

    The Devs specifically call Blind a CC, because it impacts your ability to control your character, but it does not do so through a debuff (Some games do this.). Roots and freezes (holds right) are also not debuffs (Though they often have debuffs attached to them.). A slow is a debuff and a CC because it reduces a characters stats in order to remove full control of the character from the player.

    Blind in WS reminds me a bit of EQ though at least WS you keep some vision.

    EQ blind completely blanked your screen including the UI.(admittedly that was likely a limitation of the engine considering it was coded in 1999)
