I have been looking closer at my stat increases. Initially I have loaded up on Power and Precision items but I wanted to understand a bit more about Condition Damage.
The wiki describes it as such:
Condition Damage, also known as Malice, is a secondary attribute that improves the damage dealt by conditions your character inflicts.
What I am wondering is if this affects all damaage done to the creature - including utility skills.
I would assume the aanswer to be yes but as I don't have time at the moment to test it out I am putting the question here.
As a thief one of my favorite utility skills is Caltrops. When I drop these down and slowwly back away I love to watch the enemy health bar wither away.. it's even better if I get a 2 pull
I am going to do a few pulls without any jewelry on to log the damaage done by caltrops and then a few pulls with all +condition damage jewelry. While I really love the damage output I have gotten from my +power gear I'm hoping to see a nice boost to this DoT damage as well.
Come to think of it... I should also run a few pulls with my +power gear on as well to see the difference.
