Buff Damage Explained

We of Everlasting Night are NOT the author of this guide. It’s a guide made years ago on google docs and going to be deleted soon, so I made a copy of it.
Once I find the original author I’ll give him credits. Please contact me at Nekreirypt#0890 on discord if you know the author!
