Related traits[edit]


  • Well of Power hits enemies inside each time it pulses. This deals no damage but triggers effects such as Vampiric. Like all wells, these hits are unblockable.
  • The stability and stun break are only applied to the caster.
  • Applies Well of Power buff to allies every second, converting conditions to boons every second for the next 5 seconds.
  • Conditions are converted as follows, 1 condition per second per character affected.
    • Exception: Fear 40px.png Fear on the caster will be removed by the stun break effect, instead of being converted, but fear applied after the stun break can still be converted.
