— In-game description


Unlike Thrill of the Crime trait, the vigor boon will not be granted when there is no target.
  • Damage is dealt before boon removal if the Mug trait is enabled, so Venoms also trigger before boon removal.
  • Does not steal "stacks" of the boons; e.g. the enemy has 15 stacks of Might, your character is only going to receive 1 stack of might (unknown which individual might application/duration takes priority); if the enemy is using a boon that stacks duration, such as Protection, and has both a 3s and a 4s application of it (showing as 7 seconds total), your character will only steal the 3s or the 4s application of the boon (unknown which application/duration takes priority), not the full 7s. The target, however, WILL lose all stacks of that duration stacking boon, regardless of which specific stack your character receives.
  • Prioritizes aegis over other boons, followed by stability, protection, regeneration, retaliation, fury, swiftness, might, resistance, quickness and vigor.[1]
