Article covering the gamut of boons/conditions and keywords relevant to skills in Guild Wars 2.

Thanks for the link - nice and concise article.

I wonder if the similarity in colouration (ie red for conditions and orange for boons) may cause some confusion. Perhaps they appear at different spots on the screen?

Good find, could just use the wiki though? Admittedly the commentary is useful, like I didn't realise how important conditions were for dps until a bit ago.

Where does that boon "Quickness" come from? Wasn't that pruned from the list in recent updates? Jon Peters' update on Boons and conditions doesn't list it at all.

Thanks for the article Seven - nicely laid out and easy to grasp. Small observation - your imageshack pics aren't showing (except for the ice-froggy placeholder/"Domain Unregistered" text).

No, it's actually of the recently added effects.

Quickness was one of the earlier boons. It was there at least as early as when the engineer was first playable, because he had some skills that have quickness. It hasn't been added recently but its not used much because it essentially doubles your damage.

Very nice. Quick and precise and to the point, although I did not see mention of Class specific boon Aegis for the Guardian - I see it listed on the icon list, but you didn't mention what it does. I'm sure we all know what it does, but if this list is meant for people who don't have a clue, it would be nice to throw that in there. :)

Didn't realize the author http linked the image... it's self hosted and should be fine now
