Fear you inflict deals damage each second.

— In-game description


The December 11 update changed the tooltip to match the current actual damage, which follows the damage formula from before the August 28 update:
  • Despite fear inflicting condition damage with this trait, it is not converted into health through the use of Parasitic Contagion.
  • Targets inflicted with fear while under the effects of Resistance.png Resistance will still take damage from this trait but will not be crowd controlled.
