Boon Duration.png Boon Duration is a secondary attribute that increases the duration of all boons applied by the character by a fixed percentage. Boon Duration can be increased by using certain upgrade components, some skills, and food consumables. Boon Duration cannot be increased beyond +100%.

Maximizing boon duration[edit]

This table gives the optimum combination of equipment and consumable effects necessary to achieve the highest possible boon duration bonus. It does not include bonuses from skills or traits (such as Banner of Tactics) since those are fairly limited in how they can be obtained.

  1. ^ There are 8 upgrade slots left: 2 on weapons, 1 on back item, and 5 on trinkets (replace the default jewels, as they only give 10 concentration =~ 0.67% boon duration).
  2. ^ As stated above, this is capped at 100%. However, there are some skills, traits, and upgrade components that affect specific boons (e.g. Virtue of Retribution for retaliation, Rune of the Air for swiftness), and those are applied in addition to this attribute.

Notes[edit]

  • 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

Trivia[edit]

  • During beta, Boon Duration was named Concentration.
