Notes[edit]

  • Applies the "Guard!" effect to the player and nearby allies
  • Might is applied whenever the player's pet is hit while the effect is active — Since affected allies transfer a portion of their damage to the pet, any allied players with the effect will effectively grant 1 stack of might to the caster whenever they are hit.
