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:“
Increased outgoing damage; stacks intensity.
— In-game description
0.3125 * Level + 5power and condition damage per stack (e.g. 30 at level 80).
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.
With 25 stacks of might at level 80, the bonus is +750 power and condition damage.
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.
