      Ok, honest question: Is there an actual limit to how much it can buff you? Like, if I go into the Guiding Lands, can I just cart a dozen times and just start smacking monsters at +100% damage?

        Be aware, by my own testing, it looks like you cannot intentionally buff twice with fortify and then remove the decoration, or the skill leaves.

          Something I've been wondering, actually. Would it activate twice / instantly go to full power if you have two pieces of gear with this Gem in them or one piece of gear with 2 of these gems in them?

            This also applies when you are on expeditions. Not sure if the buff is only temporary or permanent though, but theoretically this skill is best used in expeditions where there is no penalty for dying.
