Raid Buffs and Debuffs in Wrath of the Lich King Classic

Last updated on Aug 28, 2023 at 12:40 by Abide 11 comments

Welcome to our Wrath of the Lich King raid buffs and debuffs guide. On this page you will find out which buffs and debuffs provide the same effect, which stack or do not stack with each other, and which class and spec provides each specific buff. Use this list in combination with our Raid Compositions guide to help decide which classes and specs bring the most benefit to your raiding group.

Below you will find a comprehensive list of all available buffs and debuffs in Wrath of the Lich King. Spells and talents that are listed under the same category, like those under "Attack Power" provide the same buff, meaning they do not stack with each other. However, not all buffs and debuffs are of equal value. Some provide more stats, some have a longer duration, and some even have multiple benefits. In general, the most powerful buff will overwrite all others, providing you with the best possible stats.

If you would like to see how to best coordinate all of these buffs and debuffs among your own groups, we recommend checking out our guide to Group Compositions in Wrath of the Lich King Classic below.
