Condition Duration

Condition Duration.png Condition Duration, also known as Expertise, is a secondary attribute that improves the duration of all conditions inflicted by the character.

While the actual duration of a condition is never rounded, the display in a skill's tooltip will show the duration rounded to the nearest quarter of a second (0s, ¼, ½, ¾ and 1s). Conditions which inflict damage over time (bleeding, burning, torment and poison) only deal damage each full second. Thus, if a skill that inflicts poison with a duration of 6 seconds has its duration increased to 6.9 seconds through traits, it will show 7s in its tooltips, but will actually only deal damage 6 times, since the 7th second isn't actually reached. Condition duration from various sources increases (and decreases) additively as a percentage increase on the base condition duration. For example, an increase of 30% condition duration from traits and an increase of 15% bleeding duration from runes would yield a total of 45% bleeding duration increase over the base duration. Condition duration from runes isn't shown in the skill's tooltip, but does correctly increase duration. Condition duration cannot be increased beyond 100%. Conditions which stack duration have a cap at 9 stacks, meaning that the duration for the 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 the condition has run out, another stack can be applied, further increasing its duration.

Trivia[edit]

  • The diamond-shaped icon for this attribute (and for Condition Damage) is a relic of early development, when all conditions had diamond-shaped icons in different colors, instead of the uniform red icons they have now.
