<< Online RPG, Fantasy Game, Free MMORPG DarkSwords >> Character : Effects.

Integral part of the world of Dark Swords is magic. One of the most popular and its useful sections is devoted to buffs. Buffs are spells that increase your stats or the stats of others. Buffs can alternately be obtained, by means of magic elixirs.


Strength of effect is defined the level of a spell by means of which the buff has been imposed. It is impossible to cast a buff on the character atop of similar of higher level already imposed.


The list of buffs and their level (duration of it for itself and members of the group) can be seen in pop-up by hovering the cursor of the mouse on the image of the character. The sign designates general presence of buffs, the sign is used, if there is «sanctuary» effect on the list. The «Parameters/effects» panel where appropriate colours can be assigned to accessible effects is useful for effects’ controlling (the menu is accessed with a right click).


In general, buffs have a limited time. The spell named «Dispel magic» spell reduces this time, if casted sucessfully, 10 minutes can be removed. The use of lightning bolts with 3 successful hits causing «Shock» also remove 5 minutes of action of each effect. Besides, there is a set of buffs which are consequence of use of fighting abilities, alchemical elixirs and even peaceful occupations.
