  • The attack power boosts stack multiplicatively with other Augments that increase Strength and Magick.
    • The increases are show in-game in stat menus.
    • In Dark Arisen the total cumulative increase in Strength and/or Magick from Augments is limited to +80% (i.e. 1.8 times).
  • The Augment is active from 9pm to 5am (relative to the 12 noon bell tolling of Gran Soren Cathedral) - the start is around two hours after it becomes dark, and ends shortly after the sun appears over the horizon. (For more details see Day and Night cycle) This is slightly shorter than the period which pawns keep their lanterns lit (8pm till 6am).
