Effects[edit source]

I was playing when I found that when I had the Dryad's Blessing buff on I had a thorns effect on me which I tested on a Green Slime. It would deal 1 damage to me and I would deal 1 damage to it. When I lost the buff I ceased to do damage to the slime. Could someone test this a bit further to see how many other effects there are other than increased defense?

Knockback[edit source]

The Dryad's Blessing buff also seems to have a knockback effect where anytime an enemy deals contact damage to the player who is under this buff, they are knocked back. I experienced this during Slime Rain on several slimes. Lyricon24 (talk) 01:21, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

I'd figured that the added knockback effect was an implied feature of the thorns effect, but it's probably best not to leave info to be implied. I've added a bit about it. – KM100 (talk) 14:05, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Dryad's Bane: Debuff or Buff?[edit source]

I know Dryad's Bane has negative effects, but is it technically a buff or debuff? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Awesome diamonds (talkcontribs) at 20:05, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

"Technically" it isn't a buff, as it lacks the debuff flag in code. But also, "technically", the only thing the "debuff" flag does is make it so the debuff can't be cancelled, so a debuff that can't be inflicted on players doesn't need the flag (Betsy's Curse and Oiled also lack the debuff flag). Seeing as the internal buff ID name is "DryadsWardDebuff", it's clear that it's intent is to be a debuff. Whether or not it's "technically" a debuff is really up to how you choose to put it, but I believe that the standard "buff = good, debuff = bad" method of differentiating the two is good enough for casual readers. – KM100 (talk) 21:03, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to answer this! I see the reasoning behind it just being listed as a debuff now —Awesome_Diamonds (talk) 21:49, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
