The Delay (遅延, Chien) is a type of problematic buff most notably to drastically decreases the unit's movement speed and extends their Latency and recharge time.

The effect may be inflicted to any party.

Delay is not to be confused with Slow  . Quicken doesn't decreases the unit's Speed stat, it only increases Latency by 50% while extended recharge time of(several) abilities by 50%. Movement speed are also decreased by 0.5 meters of stride per second.

Delay is the opposite of Quicken, if Quicken is inflicted during Delay, both statuses neutralizes each other. If Stop is inflicted, the target will Stop, Delay is dispelled.

It is also possible to have Delay with Slow   in the same time, both of them may be acquired if Delay is inflicted first. Both of the statuses will disappear if the unit had been inflicted by Haste  or Quicken  status.
