Debuffs are a can of worms.
They aren’t necessarily bad or good, but they add a whole plethora of new considerations to PvP. If they are implemented, PvP would have to undergo massive balance changes. Here are some debuffs that should be noted:
- Betsy’s Curse
- Cursed Inferno (Inhibits Regen)
- Shadowflame (Inhibits Regen)
- Acid Venom (Denies Regen)
- Frostburn (Denies Regen)
The massive, pervasive effects of the aforementioned debuffs on the PvP meta should be self-explanatory. Here are some notable effects:
Ichor arrows and venom arrows would dominate the meta.
Golden Shower would become significantly more powerful.
The addition of these debuffs would bring new meaning to the use of flasks, and this would demonstrably affect all melee weapons and whips.
The addition Betsy’s Curse would make Betsy’s Wrath more preeminent than it already is.
