Deals damage every second; stacks duration.

— In-game description

Burning 40px.png Burning is a condition that inflicts damage over time and stacks in duration. However, there is a cap at 9 stacks for this condition, meaning that the duration for this condition will only be increased by the first 9 sources that apply it, and all stacks that would normally increase the duration beyond the first 9 stacks will be ignored. Once the duration from the first application of burning has run out, another stack can be applied, further increasing the duration of burning. Characters suffering from burning will have flames emanating from them. Damage is determined by the following formula:

(0.25 * Condition Damage) + (4 * Level) + 8 damage per second
(0.25 * Condition Damage) + 328 damage per second at Level 80
