  1. ^ This total is a baseline available for increasing the duration of any boon. There are some skills, traits, and upgrade components that can increase the total even more, but are not included because each is limited to a certain profession or boon (e.g. Signet of Midnight is limited to mesmers, Nature's Bounty is limited to rangers using regeneration, or Rune of the Air is limited to swiftness).

[edit] Notes

  • The boon ends 1 second after the "Time Left" countdown shows "0 seconds"
  • Even if the maximum increase is +100%, tooltips will show durations beyond this limit
