Increased outgoing damage; stacks intensity.

— In-game description

Might is a boon that increases Power and Condition Damage and can stack in intensity up to 25 times. The effect of might is determined by the following formula:

0.3125 * Level + 5 power and condition damage per stack

This means that at level 80, each stack of might grants +30 Power and +30 Condition Damage. With 25 stacks of might at level 80, the bonus is +750 power and condition damage.

When buffing allies, the Level in the formula refers to the recipient, not the giver. A level 64 character will receive +25 power and condition damage from might, irrespective of the level of the ally who buffed him.

Current conditions are still affected by might, e.g. if you applied bleeding and then gain might, the damage from bleeding increases. If might drops, then so will condition-based damage.
