    As some of you knows, I'm adding the missing buff/debuff icons to EC.
    But to complete the task I need your help: unfortunately the latest monster abilities are a bit hard to test many times to gather data, so I need the help of the community in order to fullfil the task :)

    For each one of the following ability I need to know:
    1) time length
    2) real effects
    3) if something can reduce the effects

    The abilities are:

    - the dread horn ability : "A wave of hopelessness washes over you, suppressing your ability to react in combat." (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 60 seconds
    EFFECT: -20 all stats
    REDUCTION: none (neither stone form can avoid it)

    - the grizzle cacophonic scream : "A cacophonic sound lambastes you, suppressing your ability to move." (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 30 seconds
    EFFECT: slow movement speed, FC -5, FCR -5, SSI -60
    REDUCTION: none

    - melisande's puke : "Your enemy's putrid presence envelops you, overwhelming you with nausea." (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 30 seconds
    EFFECT: -60% SSI, -60% HCI, -60% DCI, -5 FC
    REDUCTION: none

    - medusa's stone : "You have been turned to stone!!!" (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 7 seconds
    EFFECT: freeze the target
    REDUCTION: none

    - web paralyze of navrey/mephitis: "You are wrapped in spider webbing and cannot move!" (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 10 seconds
    EFFECT: freeze the target
    REDUCTION: none

    - stygian dragon/slasher fear: (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 11 seconds (0 res spell) - 2 seconds (120 res spell)
    EFFECT: freeze the target
    REDUCTION: resisting spells

    - slasher falling walls : "The Slasher emits a powerful howl, shaking the very walls around you and suppressing your ability to move." (DONE)
    TIME LENGTH: 11 seconds
    EFFECT: freeze the target
    REDUCTION: none

    I hope someone can help :)

    Thanks

    Did you check UOGuide? I don't know the details on any of these, but if anyone knows, I'd imagine the information would be there.

    Dreadhorn does -20 to each stat.
    I dont fight grizzle because of the item damage, but on the ancient hellhounds cacophonic sound was -50ssi and -5fc .
    Dont know about duration, because you have to live with the effect most of the time.

    Ok, I've gathered the data of medusa petrifying and the navrey/mephitis webs.

    Note that the navrey webs can be sidestepped by being paralyzed from spellcasting when it hits you. It's one of the reasons why my tamer uses a macro that casts greater heal over and over on my GD when he's tanking on small or solo hunts (with no eval, it's not like I have anything better to do with my mana, other than bard specializations - if someone else is tanking, I'll use the provo specializations, and just tough out the webs).

    Oh, something that may help.

    Remove Curse works on Dreadhorn's stat ability. I don't think it works on the others though?

    no doesn't seems to work neither on dread horn ability, maybe you cast it exactly when it's over :D

    They must have changed it in the last few months then? Used to work perfectly, every time. Maybe the chivalry tweaks changed it.

    I have to thanks my bard to be so brave to challenge all this evil creatures alone to gather the data :D

    Now only the Slasher remains.
    Would be nice to know the time of the "panic" with 120 res spell in order to create a formula for the scale. Also would be nice to know the duration of the "rocks rain".
