Haven't tried the armor, can't be bothered to, but it'd be nice if someone could check those, too.
So, I have a giver dagger and it's not increasing condition duration on either my utilities or offhand dagger skills.(I'm a nec)
It could be because I am already specced into condition duration with my traits, so maybe it doesn't stack, or it could be that it doesn't work altogether. Whatever the case, avoid buying one until they're working.

With Blood is Power (30 sec base bleed on foe) and Enfeebling Blood (10 sec base bleed on foe(s)), my +30% from traits puts that at 39 sec and 13 sec, respectively. In the tooltip with or without the dagger, it says 39 and 13. I figured maybe this is just a tooltip bug, so I tried it out. Nope, still got 39 and 13, when I should be getting 42 and 14.

Anyway, just figured people'd want to know that.

It's because you're a Sylvari Necro, we've got no idea what the hell's going on with blood, we don't have any.

Thanks for the note though, won't be investing in one of these till that's fixed.

I think this might actually be a bug in the weapon stats. I've notice that giver's armor is tou/hp/boon duration, but the weapons are vit/cond duration and I think precision. Perhaps the weapons only list those stats, but actually give the same stats the armor does? It would explain why you're not getting extra cond duration, and why giver's weapons' stats differ from that of giver's armor.

I meant when I applied the bleeds I hovered over the bleed icon on the target I used it on. It said 39, 38, 37, and 13,12,11. Maybe I just missed it on the enfeebling blood, as it's only a 1 sec difference, but I doubt I missed it on the 3 sec difference of BiP.

I confirm this does jack for your main hand too. It just plain isn't having any effect on bleeds at the moment. (and probably everything else...)

I can attest to this too. I tested this by activating Virtue of Justice (which is 4 seconds, not 5). Used 2 Giver's weapons + 5% from traits and had no effect. Used 1 Giver's weapon with a superior sigil of smoldering and 5% from traits, no effect. (25% is supposed to add 1 second to the burn)

Oh yeah, and I got suspended on the main forums for posting this. Way to go Arenanet.

There will probably be another update Early Jan after the event has finished, lets hope its sorted by then. I'd love to see if its a viable stat set to roll.

Jan feb update is the "reborn" Posted Image , we "should" have a crapload of exploitable junk...erm new amazing content to enjoy , and ye, on subsequent patches, a fix of this stuff with a sense. I'm still wondering why this kind of "additional" bufff using this kind of weapons is even online. To kill alpha faster zerging?

Well we had the mithril  / ecto exploit this time so in jan / feb there will probably be another exploit a few players can get rich off while everyone else gets more gold making nerfs :P

So givers armor doesn't work also or just the weapons?
