Patch Changes
August 28, 2018
  • This trait has replaced Enhanced Bulwark. Forceful Persistence increases outgoing damage by 13% while the revenant has an active upkeep skill when not channeling Glint. While channeling Glint, it increases outgoing damage per active facet by 4% in PvE and 3% in PvP and WvW.
November 07, 2017
  • This trait has been reworked and renamed to Forceful Persistence, and it causes you to deal 7% increased damage while maintaining an upkeep skill.
  • Herald upkeep skills grant a 2% bonus but can be stacked.
  • This trait has swapped positions with Cleansing Channel.
October 23, 2015 Heart of Thorns release:
  • Cruel Repercussion has been added to the game.


Unlike most modifiers in game, this one stacks additively with Ferocious Aggression instead of multiplicatively.
  • The damage increase from herald upkeep skills includes Facet of Nature and will stack with the other herald and non-herald upkeep skill damage bonuses.
