— In-game description

Torment 40px.png Torment is a condition that inflicts damage over time and stacks in intensity. If the victim is moving, they take twice the amount of damage they would while stationary. Characters suffering from torment have black smoke on their legs (if applicable) and large red scratch marks around their lower body. The damage dealt by torment is determined by the following formula:

(0.045 * Condition Damage) + (0.18 * Level) + 1.5 damage per stack per second,
(0.045 * Condition Damage) + 15.9 damage per stack per second at level 80.
