— In-game description


  • The cripple the trait provides is not affected by the increased condition duration.
  • Only the base durations are increased, thus not counting towards the maximum condition duration.
  • The boon duration for Healing Spring is actually increased by 66% to 5 seconds.
  • The condition duration for Flame Trap is actually increased by 66% to 4.15 seconds.
Flame trap does not apply cripple even though it's properly listed on tool tip
