Overview

Boon Thief is an insanely strong boon support that can provide 100% uptime on Might Might, Quickness Quickness, Fury Fury, Protection Protection, Regeneration Regeneration, Vigor Vigor, Retaliation Retaliation and very high uptimes on Stability Stability, Aegis Aegis,Resistance Resistance. This means Boon Thief can upkeep almost every boon in the game, except Alacrity Alacrity; making most other supports redundant.
However, it is extremely important to note that Boon Thief only works on encounters where a thief can reliably get the Stolen Skill Detonate Plasma Detonate Plasma. These encounters are as follows:
  • Matthias Gabriel
  • Mursaat Overseer
  • Cardinal Adina
  • Statues of Grenth
  • And Keep Construct, to some extent.
