@AndrlCh said in What is this (BUFF)?:
@Why-darling All that icon indicates is that you have used a drink, regardless of which kind it is. Assuming you are using a Guts Drink (or whatever it is called on the NA server/the one that gives extra HP) , and are getting the Large effect (either from EX or Premium), then the HP increase you have seems to be close, since the Large effect gives you 1.5x HP.
Innacurate, I use the attack/Shifta drink large, so the Guts drink isn't the only reason their health can gain a temporary buff.
I notice this happening a lot during UQ's at the teleport pad, right after someone uses their buff techniques. It's usually an attack buff, followed by a defense buff, and then some third buff that I don't recognize, and then the same person casting all three, will often heal by using Resta, as to bring everyone's health up to their current maximum.
My health is usually 1030/1045 depending on my equipped weapon, but after a player uses their skills, as I mentioned before, my health jumps to 1330/1345. I gain exactly 300 points each time. To this day, I still don't know what they are casting. But I know for a fact the Guts drink isn't the only way to have your health enormously buffed. And yes, a second of those icons appears until the buff drops off. It lasts about five minutes or so, give or take a few.
