Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Blind.
  • Blind can virtually neutralize a physical attacker, because they only have a one in ten chance of hitting with attacks. Blind is very useful in both PvP and PvE, and can significantly reduce damage output from melee or ranged attackers.
  • A Rune of Clarity and the inscription "I Can See Clearly Now" can be used to reduce Blind duration by 20% each.
  • Your projectiles may stray slightly off course while blinded. This can be seen while blinded and using a projectile weapon (bow, staff) or projectile spell (Flare, Crippling Dagger) on a target. They sometimes lean to the left or right side of a target, if the target moves or stop moving this can cause "stray" or "dodge". Other misses will simply display as the word "miss".
  • The visual indication of Blind is a swarm of black dots originating from the affected character's eyes.
