Here is  quick order of buffs and debuffs according to a basic set up (bard/chon). Keep in mind there are fights where combat buffs will be used in a different order. It's very important we keep the proper buffs and debuffs on throughout a fight so we can pull higher dps.

 If anything has been removed with new expansion please state in comment below :).  Again this is a reference guide.  



Debuffing: These should be used and kept up the entire fight with the exception of power core/wild growth.


Archon - Pillaging Stone, Ashen Defense, Crumbling Resistance, Lingering Dust

Bard - Coda of Jeopardy

Inquis - Clinging Spirit (Bolt of Depravity/Soul Drain)

Chloro - Wild Growth

Tact - Power Core

Marksmen - Lightening Fury

Assassin - Lethal Poison



Stat Debuff
