Each of the current Lairs uses common buffs that determine the tactics needed to farm the common monsters in each zone. Usually this is reflected by a pair of buffs that can not be removed by any purges. One buff is called Lair, though it's effects vary depending on the zone, the other is called Trigger which usually interacts with the Lair buff.
Lair: Increased Defense Rating.
Trigger: When a Glancing Hit applies to the monsters, they are healed for an amount.
Lair: Increased Block Chance
Trigger: Whenever the target deals a penetrating hit, it applies a single stack of Filth Surge to its enemy target. Whenever enemy target blocks target, a single stack of Filth Surge is removed from enemy target. When enemy target has 3 stacks of Filth Surge, it is removed and replaced with Filth Discharge (Periodic damage).
Lair: Increased Block Chance. Periodically gains a single stack of Regenerative Armour.
Trigger: Whenever target recieves a penetrating hit, a single stack of Regenerative Armour is removed. Whenever target successfully blocks, it gains 2 stacks of Regenerative Armour. Penetration chance increased if target is suffering from Impairing effects.
Regenerative Armour: Stacks up to 10, each stack reduces damage taken by 5%
