Needs a buff. 11:41, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Yea, swap recharge and lasting time. That'd be enough. Noctarch 22:22, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Does this also work for enchantments such as Veil of Thorns? -- 13:01, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Does not need a buff IMO, this can be used with amazing results on a D/P using Stunning Strike. Though I've never run a build like this or seen an entire one, I'd imagine it would be something like...

If you've never seen or used it, how do you know it's amazing? Bathory 18:33, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I've seen it used, I did not see the entire build, but I caught a few key skills. I know it's amazing (or assume) because it was so effective, unless the derv using it was just fighting total nubs.

Unlikely combination but would this work?[edit]

If i had a ranger (for example) using broadhead arrow, and i was a d/me using this and epidemic, would this affect the length of dazed caused by epidemic or not? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Reaper94 (talk).

Yes, Epidemic works with condition extenders. Weapon mods alone allow you to maintain lengthy conditions indefinitely on multiple foes, since the extra +33% duration will generally offset the 5 second epidemic recharge. Mystic Corruption stacks multiplicatively with weapon mods for x2 condition duration. MA Anathe 18:38, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Condition extension if removed?[edit]

If I have say dust cloak and this on and use mystic sandstorm, will the blind be extended or no? 02:26, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

You bring up a very interesting question, and the simplest answer I can give you is that it's complicated. Enchantments are removed in a specific and consistent order by spells like Mystic Sandstorm, Contemplation of Purity, and Release Enchantments. For example, if you cast Pious Renewal, Mirage Cloak, and Mystic Sandstorm, you will NEVER gain extra energy and health from Mirage Cloak. Mystic Sandstorm always removes Pious Renewal before Mirage Cloak, so it's gone before Mirage Cloak ends.
How's this relate to Mystic Corruption? Mystic Corruption has its own place in the pecking order. This means that it will never benefit some spells, while it will take effect on others when they're removed 'simultaneously'. This gets even more complicated when you remember that Mystic Corruption's effect is based on how many enchantments are currently on you. If you have Mystic Corruption, Vigorous Spirit, Dwayna's Sorrow, and Staggering Force, at 16 Mysticism and 7 Earth Prayers, you should find that Staggering Force's condition is extended. Unfortunately, instead of weakening foes for 15 seconds (10 * 1.48), you only get 13 (10 * 1.32) seconds. Dwayna's Sorrow is not credited towards Mystic Corruption's effect. (Staggering Force won't count for itself, but this is likely because the condition removal is its on-ending effect.) MA Anathe 04:07, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Stack with Plague Signet?[edit]

For example if I have a Plague Signet which extends the duration by 150%, how does it stack? Will it be +50%(max of Mystic Corruption) added to the Plague Signet so it becomes 200% (150%+50%) or 150x1,5=225%? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Extension and reduction effects stack multiplicatively. MA Anathe 18:47, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
really? archer's signet had a math question and using the percents multiplicatively still gave a smaller value than in-game result. and i remember a mystic corruption+plauge signet (joke) build somewhere that caused 4.5 minute long bleeding with barbed weapon. 12:49, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
With typically seen durations, the math appears to hold true. There's no current explanation for why there are reports of abnormally long durations exceeding the expected value of any method of calculation. I suppose it's a good "Request for Research". MA Anathe 07:07, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
