— In-game description

Well of Power.


  • Well of Power hits enemies inside each time it pulses. This deals no damage but triggers effects such as Vampiric Vampiric. Like all wells, these hits are unblockable.
  • The stability and stun break are only applied to the caster on cast. This skill does not pulse stability.
  • One stack of Might is applied to allies in range every pulse for a total of 6 stacks.
  • Conditions are converted as follows, 1 condition per second per character affected.
    • Exception: Fear.png Fear on the caster will be removed by the stun break effect, instead of being converted, but fear applied after the stun break can still be converted.
