As per title. If so, it'd follow that debuff resist would counter the damage?

That is a great question I would like the answer to.


If yes then that would make the Debuff stat much more valuable

Considering there were speculations about CGB time window being effected by debuff resist; at this point anything and everything ispossible; since those stats are just generic words with no clarity behind them.

The most clarity I found is this:

But still it doesn't tell if the list there is 100% accurate.

nope.

Do you have proof to back up that statement or are you just stating your opinion?

i think yes because all type of debuff you recive have a purple symbol top of your life bar (bleed is an exception), so debuff resistance should help even with stamina drain debuff

by playing as long as I have.
ive only seen debuff resistance work on bleed dmg, fire dmg, and feats that debuff players. ive never lost less stam from a bash attack or less blinded time.
stam damage is damage. not a status effect placed on your hero.

Stam drain not being considered a debuff makes sense because debuffs are typically damage over time , BUT what about stamina cost reduction???

Stamina regen and exhaustion recovery help counter stam drain indirectly by their very nature, but what about cost reduction which can affect the drain directly? Do you know if stam drain is affected by cost reduction stats? I haven't played enough to get a feel for this, but I've been running under the assumption that it does.

Good question. Hopefully, a mod will relay it to be answered tomorrow on the dev stream. They are suppose to release something that explains all this. Dont remember timeframe, though.

As i know all stamina drain attacks are unblockable so it seems pretty weird, and not glowing anyhow in purple, so its very possible that's do not work as indeed.

far as i know ( my cent uses stam reduction) it doesn't effect how much you lose from an opponents stam drain attacks. it only reduces the cost of your attacks.

That's a good question. I was wondering if it affects stun recovery as well. That'd be handy

IIRC the intensity of the stun -- as in how white/fazed out the screen becomes, is counted as a debuff and therefore altered by the stat. That's what people used to say a few months back.
