  • Cripple will also shorten your leap range.
  • Story-related "wounded" NPCs are sometimes given a permanent Crippled effect to make them significantly slower. These effects can nevertheless still be drawn or removed by conventional condition-related skills.

Player chatter[edit]

  • When Cripple is applied to a character they will occasionally shout out one of the following lines, depending on their race and gender.
Race Gender
Male Female
Asura tango icon 20px.png Asura I'm incapacitated! My mobility is impaired!
Charr tango icon 20px.png Charr My leg! Can't walk right...
Human tango icon 20px.png Human My leg! My leg!
Norn tango icon 20px.png Norn Ah my leg! Not the leg...
Sylvari tango icon 20px.png Sylvari Ah, ow my leg... ah... I can barely stand.

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.

  • Reduced the maximum stacks of this condition from 9 to 5.
