    Here's the next update. Wanted to update the buffs first so that they had a Benefit in Buff Sets section added in to them so it made it easier for me to edit buff sets with them and so you guys knew which buffs did what in the recommended buff sets page as a short hand reference.

    Mute's update from yesterday with changes to some buffs and some work I have been doing on making it up to 10x eaiser for you guys to find buffs in this guide have resulted in 3 updates, enjoy :)

    I could really call this guide update V1.7 if I wanted to, but it was not a huge update at all.

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide Updated! (V1.6.5 -> V1.6.8)

    The following pages received changes
    The main page of this guide
    Offensive Buffs Page 3
    Ability Buffs Page 2
    Equipment Buffs Page 2
    Utility Buffs Page 2

    ...

    Additions
    + Added in wording to the front of the Miscellaneous Buffs first page to make it more easy to understand what the buffs there are about.
    + Added in numbering to EVERY SINGLE BUFF (yep, no buff is not numbered). This makes it easier to identify them, especially when looking them up just by their number.
    + Added in a Top Link from the 2nd buff onwards on every page to make it easier to return to the top of the currently viewed page. (This inspiration came from one of Mute's recent guides)

    Changes
    = Changed up the way the buffs were displayed in each of the respective sections, limiting it to 7 per page unless the number of buffs within the respective section was less than 10. This was the case for the Economy and Exp Buffs so I decided leave all the buffs in the 1 page.
    = Deadeye Buff got buffed (go to Offensive Buffs Page 3 for the changes within the description, positives and explanations)
    = Immolation Buff got nerfed and now offers slow resistance instead of increased movement speed as one of the buff effects (go to Ability Buffs Page 2 for the full changes)
    = Infirmary Buff got buffed (overall) (go to Equipment Buffs Page 2 for the full changes)
    = Caretaker Buff name changed to Healing Shocks Buff. Completely reworked from scratch (go to Utility Buffs Page 2 for the full changes)

    Removals
    - None

    ...

    All the other guides will eventually receive page updates soon to make it easier to find everything and to make it easier to return to the top of the currently viewed page. Please feel free to let me know your feedback to this wonderful update! Much appreciated :)
