Damage received on skill activation; stacks intensity.

— In-game description

Confusion 40px.png Confusion is a condition that deals damage each time the affected target begins to activate a skill. Confusion stacks in intensity.

Characters suffering from confusion can be identified by twirling, purple tinted spiral over their heads. Additionally, the same effect will appear alongside damage dealt by confusion when using a skill.

The formula for confusion's damage is:

10 + (1.5 * Level) + (0.15 * Condition Damage) per stack
130 + (0.15 * Condition Damage) per stack at level 80
65 + (0.075 * Condition Damage) per stack

Confusion damage is applied on every skill activation, whether activated manually or automatically. For example, necromancers will take confusion damage when they create a Mark of Blood after dodging while equipped with the Mark of Evasion trait.
