Buffing Guide


Often times in Anarchy Online you will find yourself requiring a buff from someone to either get on a new weapon, equip an implant or symbiant or make use of a new piece of armor. Particularly as a new player it might be hard to figure out which buffs can help you in your task. The goal of this guide is to have a complete listing of all these nano buffs, as well as which of them are stackable.

Note: None of the buffs listed are so-called "self-only" buffs.
Buffs in the same Nanoline do not stack with each other.
FPable indicates whether or not agents can cast it under False Profession
All buffs below stack with Expertises and Attribute Boosts

Weapon Skills


The Wrangle


Most buffs only modifies one or two weapon skills. The wrangles on the other hand increases all weapon and nano skills (Note: Only weapon skills, not specials.) making it one of the most sought after buffs in game. It is short in duration (3 minutes) and debuffs the trader casting it for the same duration (the Shadowlands Umbral Wrangler is an aura and refreshes continuously without debuffing the trader). So rather than include the Wrangles in all the weapon skills listings, the different wrangles and which weapons it buffs will be listed here.

Skills buffed by The Wrangle:
Heavy Weapons
1h Blunt
2h Blunt
1h Edged
2h Edged
Melee Energy
Piercing
Martial Arts
Grenade
Ranged Energy
Bow
Pistol
Rifle
MG/SMG
Shotgun
Assault Rifle
Sharp Objects
Biological Metamorphosis
Sensory Improvement
Psychological Modification
Material Metamorphosis
Space Time
Material Creation

Note: How much Umbral Wrangles buff depends on how many perks, if any, the trader has in Distill Life.
