  • The maximum stat increase this grants:
 Power attribute.png Power: +250
 Power attribute.png Power: +150
 Power attribute.png Power: +225
 Precision attribute.png Precision: +250

 Ferocity attribute.png Ferocity: +250
 Ferocity attribute.png Ferocity: +150
 Ferocity attribute.png Ferocity: +225
  • The self boon loss from  Natural Healing.png Natural Healing will trigger the Attacker's Insight effect, giving spellbreakers a way to stack the effect when facing boonless enemies that would otherwise prevent this.
  • Does not actually require disabling a foe. Simply hitting a foe with a disabling effect will grant Attacker's Insight. This provides another way to gain stacks when fighting a boonless enemy with a breakbar.
  • Does not trigger when negated by Stability.png Stability.
  • Gives one stack for each enemy disabled. That means AoE attacks like  Stomp.png Stomp and  Kick (warrior utility skill).png Kick may grant multiple stacks from one attack.
