    Hello there

    Pretty self explanatory question: Is it possible to create a debuff that reduces the stress damage dealt by an enemy afflicted with it?
    If possible, would the debuff only affect abilities that specifically inflict stress, or would stress caused via critical strikes also be affected?

    My experience in this stuff is limited, but I would guess that since there are trinkets that affect a character’s stress healing (e.g. the Jester’s bright tambourine), it should be similarly possible to apply a bonus or penalty to modify a character’s stress damage.

    Hmm… I do not know if negative damage is healing in this game. Some games have that, others don’t. I wouldn’t bank on it…

    TO my knowledge, I do not think there is anything affecting stress damage output of enemies in the game(Aside from stress resistance). I do think it would be quite a nifty utility effect, though.

    There are many different ways to reduce the stress.

    Your question: A Debuff? No.

    In the battle you can heal stress. Like Jester and Knight or since crimson dlc anti-stress bottle against Horror.

    There are many smarter ways.

    You can move ememies, so they coudn´t use there strongest attacks. Only some ememies can use there attacks from first to fourth Position.
    You can stun them, so they coudn´t attack. Or beat them fast with strong Heroes and teams. You can power up your dodge.

    At my beginning with DD i try to reduce stress. But a really smart way is to use trinkets for a high virtue % and let them become virtuous.

    Different enemies needs different strategies. Not only one is the best.

    Well, thanks for the advice, but… I am not asking because I cannot deal with stress in-game, but because I wish to create a mod. A reduce-stress-damage-dealt debuff would simply be a nice option to add to your repertoire of combat strategies.

    To reiterate: The question is not if there is a “reduce stress damage dealt”-debuff in the game, but if you could create one via modding(and how to go about doing so).
