I'm not really sure what you are asking. You can only research/build a buff when it's not active.

So although for instance the +10% Magic Find for 72 hours only takes 36 hours to research, you can't queue the next Magic Find buff while the earlier researched and used Magic Find buff is still active. Only after the 36 hours the buff runs will you be able to click the button Add or Queue.

I was wondering if we could keep the same buff up continuously.  I guess that is a no.

Despite the previous posters' claims, you are able to queue a buff while using it.

Yes, I noticed I worded my post wrong. What i meant is you can't activate a buff when a similar buff is already active. Thanks for the rectification, Cake is Cake and sorry for any confusion caused.

So some buffs can be kept up continuously. 72 hrs Magic Find can be activated, a new one can be immediately queued which will be available after 48 hrs. When the 72 hr Magic Find buff expires you can repeat the process.

Same can be done for the Gathering Bonus for 48 hrs (which has a 32 hr research time).

So both these buffs can be kept up indefinitely.

15% Karma is active for 24 hrs, but takes 48 hrs to research so that one can't be kept up continuously. +5 Kill Exp is 24 hrs active with a 24 hrs research time but this buff is pretty useless.

Thanks for the clarification.  That was what I wanted to know.

Sorry for my original post being a little vague.  I made it from my mobile.  Typing on it is a bit of a chore, so sometimes I am a little terse.

You can accelerate upgrades by spending extra influence so even that one can be kept up indefinitely if you really want to.
