    Alright, I might as well stop it with the updates of my guides for now and take a break to go celebrate christmas and new year. Therefore, no more posts after this on any of my guides until after 2018 starts.

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide Updated! (V1.8.8 -> V1.9)

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide

    ...

    Additions
    + Added in Calculations of All Survivor Buffs Pages with all but the Calculations of Miscellaneous Buffs section filled up. This feature took a few days of typing, therefore this is considered to be a major update.

    Changes
    = Changed the description, positives, negatives and explanations of the Strength Burst Buff as per the December 2nd update.

    Removals
    - Removed the version number off the links and just ended up putting it in the page. That way I will no longer have to worry about changing those links again, breaking the links to some pages at once. This took only like a few hours at most.

    ...

    Over the next few days I might start planning how we will be making our big guide soon. Start being on the look out for posts!

    Hey'll I'm back to doing those guide updates again! So here is the next update for this guide! One of the main reasons why I did this update was because to make sure everyone knew that unless it got updated, the defense ignoring buffs have 100% effectiveness.

    Hey guys :)

    Ren asked me questions about the Tank duelist and Tank Party Crasher Buffs. What I did do from this was add in 2 new frequently asked questions to help those who are asking if certain buffs work in scenarios or what aggro is when it comes to Tank duelist and Tenacity Buffs.

    Hey guys :)

    A certain someone on steam told me that it would better if I made the guide more readable and understandable without getting rid of the knowledge that you are learning.

    So at the moment, while I have time, I'm doing the rewrite of pages across the Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide, and since I haven't had a lot of time to work on the guide this week, I'm making the updates I did a few days ago to be V1.9.5. Now working on V1.9.6... Enjoy!

    The Usage of Buffs
    The List of All Survivor Buffs

    ...

    Additions
    + Added in a changelog page. I'll start adding stuff there incase people are lazy to read up here for the updates... or want to have a look at the past updates done to this guide.
    + For "The List of All Survivor Buffs" Page, I splitted up all of the buffs into their respective sections, so it should be easier to follow along now.

    Changes
    = Font and size changes of text across all the pages.
    = Re-written the above pages... I've removed out some unnecessary things and have re-explained some things with just the understanding you only need to know.

    Removals
    - None so far.

    ...


    Whenever I have time, I'll be working on this guide as we get closer to PR V1.8. I'll also will still be updating these guides when the next version comes out, so don't expect me to disappear any time soon :)
