Profession mechanic skills that are improved by this trait


Unlike Thrill of the Crime trait, the vigor boon will not be granted when there is no target.
  • Damage is dealt before boon removal if the Mug trait is enabled, so Venoms also trigger before boon removal.
  • Unlike Larcenous Strike, Bountiful Theft will not actually transfer stacks of boons from your target when stealing. Instead, it strips the boons from the target and applies one stack of each removed boon with a fixed duration to nearby allies. It doesn't matter if your target has 25 stacks of might for 60s or 2 stacks of might for 2s, after stealing it the target will have no might left and you will have 1 stack of might for 20s.
