Notes[edit]

  • The attack damage reduction only applies to the equipped weapon's base damage.
  • The attribute reduction only applies to attributes with a base value above zero.
    • Attributes cannot be reduced below 0.
    • Attributes at rank 0 are not affected, even if they are boosted by runes.
    • Title ranks are not affected, so title skills are not directly affected by the condition.
  • The attribute reduction can cause a character to no longer meet the requirements of their weapon (or certain skills), reducing the effectiveness of certain builds, especially those that set attributes based on breakpoints.
  • The duration of this condition can be modified:
  • Weakness has the same animation as Cracked Armor.
