A percentage of the strike damage you deal is converted into barrier. Your vitality is reduced.

— In-game description

Notes[edit]

This trait erroneously modifies the tooltips of skills that inflict stun and daze, implying that it has the previous effect of +25% stun and daze durations. This is a purely visual bug, and the actual durations are unaffected.

Version history[edit]
