Elixir of Ambition

Elixir. Infuse your boundless ambition into an elixir, gaining every possible boon, and then toss the elixir at the targeted area, inflicting all damaging conditions on foes. If you are in the splash area of the elixir, gain Blight.

If you are at or above the Blight threshold when you activate this skill, consume that amount of Blight to double the damage and condition duration.
