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.

Version history[edit]

Patch Changes
May 11, 2021
  • Duration-stacking boons and conditions now behave consistently. They directly stack durations added from all sources, do not have hidden stack limits, and generally have shorter maximum durations. With most nondamaging condition durations stacking to a maximum of 10 seconds, we aim to reduce situations in which players can become stuck in combat because of a long-duration condition, preventing them from using their mount.
June 23, 2015 Specialization update:
  • Condition to Boon Conversion: Blindness converts to fury for 5 seconds (+2 seconds).
October 15, 2013
  • Fixed an issue that caused extra "Miss" floaters to display whenever an attack was dodged, evaded, or missed due to a blind.
June 25, 2013
  • Fixed an issue that caused blind to be removed when an attack was used while not in range of any targets.
