— In-game description


  • This trait applies its boon-extending effect prior to receiving boons from any skill that triggers it, preventing the trait from extending the duration of any boons the skill itself applies.
    • This skill triggers even if you have no current boons, causing the trait to have no effect while also going on cooldown.
