Notes[edit]

Gw2logo.png The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Burning.
Burning targets.jpg
  • A character suffering from burning is engulfed in flames.
    • Almost every skill that mentions this condition uses the term set on fire (rather than burning) in the non-concise description.
    • Despite this language and imagery, burning causes 7 pips of Health degeneration without any fire damage. Consequently, skills that affect fire damage (e.g. Winter) have no effect on this condition.
    • Burning does not change the color of the health bar (unlike other conditions that cause degeneration).
  • It is the only condition that affects spirits.
  • It is one of the few conditions without any weapon or armor upgrades that alter its duration.
  • Only a few creatures are immune to burning: some Titans, Burning Spirits, Flowstone Elementals, Magma Blisters, and all Destroyers (except for the The Great Destroyer).
