Calculating breakpoints[edit]
The formula for the total damage any condition will deal is as follows. Bonus Duration is the total % duration increase of a specific condition from runes, sigils and traits.
(Base Damage + Condition Damage * Scaling Factor) * Duration * (1 + Bonus Duration + (Expertise / 1500))
Taking the derivative of this formula with respect to Condition Damage will yield the damage increase from adding one point of Condition Damage.
ΔDamage = Scaling Factor * Duration * (1 + Bonus Duration + Expertise / 1500))
Taking the derivative with respect to Expertise will yield the damage increase when adding one point of Expertise. Note: If the duration for the specific condition exceeds 100% (i.e. if (Bonus Duration + Expertise / 1500) > 1) then the following formula should equal 0.
ΔDamage = Duration * (Base Damage + (Condition Damage * Scaling Factor) / 1500)
Setting these two formulas equal to each other will allow you to calculate the breakpoints for where the damage increase from Condition Damage and Expertise are equal. The following is the simplified result:
Breakpoint = 1500  (Base / Scaling Factor) + (Bonus Duration * 15)
The breakpoints listed at the top of this page were calculated using 0 bonus duration. According to the above formula, every 1% Bonus Duration will result in needing 15 more Condition Damage to break even.
Notes[edit]
 Any Condition Damage from the source character that is currently affecting a target, will update per tick according to the source character's stats. For example, an engineer may inflict bleed with an Elixir Gun weapon kit and then swap to a pair of +Condition Damage pistols in order to increase the damage over time, even if no further conditions are inflicted.
Trivia[edit]
 During beta, Condition Damage was named Malice.
 The diamondshaped icon for this attribute (and for Condition Duration) is a relic of early development, when all conditions had diamondshaped icons in different colors, instead of the uniform red icons they have now.
