|English term or phrase: buff of slaying|
|Aus dem Glossar eines Fantasy-Spiels. Leider hab ich keinen weiteren Kontext :( Aber vielleicht hat jemand von euch eine gute Idee, was das sein könnte.|
|Macht des Schlächters|
Es handelt sich definitiv um den Namen eines Buffs, also Stärkungszaubers. Im deutschen Spielersprachgebrauch wird zwar inzwischen auch von Buffs gesprochen, aber der Anglizismus macht sich nicht gut in einer Spielanleitung.
Für die Übersetzung ist in diesem Fall Kreativität gefragt und das oben genannte ist nur eine Idee ;-)

Buff (MMORPG terminology)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Buff (computer gaming))
Buff is a term generically used in many MMORPGs to describe an effect (usually cast as a spell) which beneficially enhances the target Player. There are many types of buffs, for example:
Increase the physical attributes of the target (stats). These would allow the target to wear heavier armor by increasing strength, or make the target more dextrous or intelligent.
Increase the movement rate of the target. Often this is extremely useful in very large game worlds, allowing the target to spend less time traveling. Examples of this buff are EverQuest's Spirit of Wolf (SoW) or to a lesser extent Aspect of the Pack in World of Warcraft.
Change how the target interacts with the world. This may include levitation to make the target float above the terrain and avoid pits, vision enhancements like ultravision, or water breathing for traveling or fighting underwater.
Give the target additional hit points (HP), magic points (MP), or increase the regeneration of either HPs or MPs. An examples of this kind of buff are EverQuest's Avatar (increases hit points and armor class), Koadic's Endless Intellect (increases base mana and mana regeneration), and Regrowth (increases hit point regeneration).
Increase or decrease the target's physical size in the game. This kind of buff may allow more PCs to fit in a small area, or make a main tank easier to see and target because of an increased size.
Augment the fire, cold or magic resistance of the target. These would be used when traveling in hazardous regions like lava fields (fire resist), or when combatting MOBs who primarily attack with cold.
Increase the attack speed of the target ('haste'). This allows for greater damage done to the MOB the target is fighting.
Buffs in many cases don't generate as much hate as debuffs, direct damage spells, or heals.
SoW (Spirit of Wolf above) has become somewhat of a generic term used in other MMORPGs populated by former EverQuest players, because of its popularity in game. Various peripheral merchandise such as mouse pads or T-shirts bearing reference to these spells is available.
Other MMORPGs utilize buffs as well, including Kingdom of Loathing, Asheron's Call, City of Heroes, Anarchy Online, Lineage 2, Ragnarok Online and Dark Age of Camelot.
