— In-game description

Burning 40px.png Burning is a condition that inflicts damage over time and stacks in intensity. Like all damaging conditions it can stack up to 1500 stacks. Characters suffering from burning will have flames emanating from them. Damage is determined by the following formula:

(0.155 * Condition Damage) + (1.55 * Level) + 7 damage per stack per second,
(0.155 * Condition Damage) + 131 damage per stack per second at Level 80.

Version history[edit]

Patch Changes
June 23, 2015 Specialization update:
  • All damage conditions will now stack up to 1500 times.
  • This condition will now stack in intensity.
  • The formula for this condition has been rescaled to account for the new behavior of damaging conditions and to put more focus on the condition damage stat.
  • New damage over time: 7.5 + (1.55 * Level) + (0.155 * Condition Damage)
March 19, 2015
  • Updated condition damage. Previously, a condition that had a fractional remainder of time after it dealt damage would not inflict the rest of its damage.
  • For example, a 1.5-second burn would deal 1 second of burning damage, then fail to inflict the remaining 0.5 seconds of burning.
  • Conditions will now deal this fractional damage either at the beginning or end of their duration, depending on when the next damage pulse would occur and their remaining duration.
August 28, 2012 Game release:
  • Burning has been added to the game.
