Notes[edit]

  • Applies the listed effects of crippled and bleeding every second, while active.
    • The crippled condition from this skill overwrites itself, rather than stacking additional duration on each pulse
      • However, each application counts for the purposes of effect stacking, and so a single target will not be crippled by this skill more than 5 times.
  • Triggers Signet of Malice once per condition pulse for each target affected, with a maximum of 5 instances per second.
  • This skill does not break stealth.
