Next outgoing attack misses; Stacks duration.

— In-game description

Blind gives a character's next attack a 100% chance to miss. Blindness is removed after the condition's time runs out, or after an outgoing attack that would have been successful if not for the blind. Blinded characters appear with a dark purple cloud and white cross mark surrounding their heads. An affected character's screen will also dim. Blind deals defiance bar damage at a rate of 20 per second.
