— In-game description [?]


  • Only hits one target.
  • This skill does not steal boons randomly. The order for the first three is: Retaliation, Aegis, Protection.
  • Unlike Bountiful Theft, this skill will transfer the entire stack of the boon removed to your character. For example, if your target has 25 stacks of Might, you will gain all 25 stacks, while your target loses all 25 stacks. Same for duration stacking boons like Swiftness: hitting a target with 2 minutes of Swiftness will give you the full 2 minutes.
