Debuffs are special negative effects received during gameplay in Elder Scrolls Online. A character may only have one type of debuff active at the time, so it is not possible to stack the debuff status "Defile" two times, for example. See Buffs for a list of positive effects that may be applied to a player.
Buffs are applied to enemies and players via skills cast by enemies or other players, as a result of falling into a trap, or by ingesting potions. Players may see active debuffs in their character screen.
