Do multiple buffs of the same type stack?

I have a musketeer. I can cast a 50% agility buff and my companions can do the same. Do these buffs of the same type stack to give higher damage?

Hover your mouse over your character to find out. It will show what buffs are affecting you and to what extent. Have a friend of yours with you (one that benefits from agility) then view their weapons damage number after you use the buffs. I had someone check my swashbucklers damage the other day after using multiple buffs and it was over 600 so I would say yes...these buffs stack. I don't really keep track but I think the usual damage I do without buffs and using assassins strike was like 360 x 4. With one buff I commonly hit for 430 x 4. With two buffs it is 620 x 4. So unless there is another factor involved that I am not aware of these buffs are stacking.

Those buffs will stack. There are a few attacks that don't stack - mainly Posioning and Bleeding. However, you can stack Poisoning and Bleeding together.

Hello Sandy, welcome! If you are not sure what buffs does stack or no, this is the best way to see it. Just cast them all and finally move mouse over buffed unit portrait when in planning phase of combat. You should see all buffs that are applied. So far multiple El Toro buffs, different agility buffs they do stack and you get bonus from each of them!
