— In-game description


Dying during Vengeance and respawning at a waypoint before the effect ends will cause you to be defeated again.
  • There is a 25% chance in PvP or WvW that your character will rally and lose the effect when killing a foe while in Vengeance.
  • Some things you can rally off of in the downed state cannot be rallied off of during Vengeance (ex. weak spawned minions, turrets, target-able environmental objects).[verification requested]
  • Cannot contest points in PvP or WvW while under its effect.
