September 09, 2014
  • This trait now maintains condition ownership when venoms are shared, using the thief's condition damage and condition duration attributes instead of the condition damage and attributes of the player that poisoned the creature.
  • The thief may trigger secondary effects off of these condition applications, such as weakening an enemy with Lotus Poison when an ally poisons an enemy with a shared Spider Venom.
  • Healing effects, such as those from Skelk Venom or the Leeching Venoms trait, will use the thief's healing power and power attributes but will continue to recognize the attacking player as both the healing source and healing target.
