  • The mark will last for up to 30 seconds if it is not triggered.
  • Always transfers conditions from the caster when triggered (as long as it is not evaded or blocked), whether or not the caster is inside the mark's radius.
  • If the caster is Blinded, the Blind will be transferred along with other conditions (as long as it is not evaded or blocked).
  • Transfers 3 conditions per target hit by the mark.
  • The Blast finisher occurs when the mark is triggered, not when it is placed.
