Corrupted Power is a power skill which boosts both damage dealt and damage taken for a short time.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Increases direct damage dealt by the player by base 50%, but the player receives 30% more damage from all sources while the effect is active.
      • Depending on the gear level of the Corrupted Power, its added base damage will increase.
      • The skill stacks additively with other sources that increase damage received by the player.
    • All effects last for 8 seconds.
  • Tags: NoDamage, HasDuration
  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Global Shield on Use
      • "Generates a shield when used."

Synergies[]

  • For Brutality builds, it is possible to back it up with Vampirism IconVampirism and the Recovery Mutation IconRecovery mutation to compensate for any mistakes made while the skill is active.
    • Beware that some damage sources have a specified limit which will ignore the skill's negative attribute, such as being hit by traps while Masochist Mutation IconMasochist is active.

Notes[]

  • Corrupted Power is best used for burst damage. As a trade-off, the player needs to avoid attacks to the best of their abilities in order to take maximum advantage of the skill.
  • It is ill-advised to use weapons such as Blood Sword IconBlood Sword, Alchemic Carbine IconAlchemic Carbine and Hokuto's Bow IconHokuto's Bow with it since the skill does not affect damage from negative status effects such as bleeding, poisoning, and Hokuto's Mark.

Trivia[]

  • Previously named Damage Buffer.
