    5 Stack Strength of Earth @ lvl 120 with 113.2 earth attunement, gives +26.6 Strength, single stack gives +33.3 strength. Should be +40, when stacking the tool tips are showing the correct values.

    5 Stack Purify Burst @ lvl 100 gives + 16 Death Resist, single stack gives +20. Should be +24 and tool tips are showing the correct values when stacking.

    Seems that stacking is working in reverse subtracting the value vs adding, and appears to be effecting all stack-able abilities.

    This seems to be happening for non-magic buffs too. a 6-stack of dodge is weaker than a once off

    Double check using /stats or if int/str/dex buff the character panel. I thought the same, but it was only the display. Mind you I just looked at the str and health buffs I use.

    I have a locked glyph for strength of earth, inner strength, and shild of crystal. I charge up those buffs and see the tooltip description changing for each charge. I chek the stat before I use the buff. I then cast the 5 charged stack and check the post-cast values using the character doll. In each of these cases the stat rises the correct amount. However, if I mouse over the buff icon under the nameplate, that value is wrong.

    Same here. For example stacking Strength of earth gives me +23str. When I dont stack it, it gives me 29 Str (which is the base str buff for my attunement)

    It is a visual bug, checking the character sheet stats and charging 5x strength of earth gives more str than casting it 1x.
