Next outgoing attack misses; stacks duration.

— In-game description

The blinded condition nullifies a character's next attack by giving it a 100% chance to miss. Blindness is removed after affecting a single attack or when it's duration expires. Blinded characters appear with a dark purple cloud and white cross mark surrounding their heads. An affected player's screen will also dim. Blind deals defiance bar damage at a rate of 20 per second. Blind has a maximum duration of 10 seconds.

Boon conversion changes blindness to fury with a duration of 5 seconds.

Some dredge enemies are immune to this condition.
