Of <Attribute> is a weapon upgrade that grants a 10-20% chance of increasing a specific attribute by one when calculating the strength of a skill that is linked to that attribute. This bonus does not affect the inherent effects of the attribute in question, only the value of the “green” numbers in a skill's description.
<Attribute> +1 (10...20% chance while using skills)
— in-game description
Upgrade components which provide this bonus
- Versions for martial weapons always correspond to the weapon's own attribute (such as an Axe Grip of Axe Mastery, Bow Grip of Marksmanship). Versions for all Monk, Necromancer, Mesmer, Elementalist and Ritualist attributes except for Fast Casting and Energy Storage have been confirmed for staves.
- This weapon upgrade (as well as of Mastery Staff Wrapping and "Master of My Domain" inscription) is the only way to temporarily exceed the hard cap of 20 in attribute rank, while using skills.
- The +1 bonus only applies to the skill being used; it will not boost the wielder's attribute for any other purposes. Specifically, it cannot raise the attribute to meet requirements and it will not raise any secondary effects of attributes (like Divine Favor's healing).
