    Don't trust the stats because I don't know if they keep this updated but the descriptions are valid. Not to be a jerk man but this is the first result in a bing search for "charged trait"
    I don't always drink Skooma, but when I do I go to the Southwall Corner Club. May you walk on warm sands my friends.

    It would be helpful to know what it is exactly about the description that's unclear to you, or there's a big chance everyone is just going to direct you towards google. ;)

    Good point :-)

    I'm wondering whether the 100% refer to the staff effect (burn/chill/concuss) or the enchantment effect (like mag return) or both, and at which rate both apply percentage-wise.

    That's a good question, and I honestly don't know for sure but I'm inclined to say enchantment effect only, based on comments in this thread.
    Also found this thread, and while it doesn't necessarily address your question.. considering the amount of testing that OP has done with a charged staff, they'll probably be able to answer it. :)@Masel92

    Charged greatly increases the chance of your weapon procing a status effect (chilled, burning, concussed, etc). I'm more familiar with the magic related effects but there are physical weapon ones too such as bleed. You can get an idea on the effects of the them from the passives in the respective weapon skill line. For example concussed enemies (from lightning staves) take an extra 8% damage, burning 20%, etc. Then you can proc secondary effects. Concussed enemies hit with a lightning Wall of Elements for example will be set off balance, be stunned, and take significantly more damage especially with the Exploiter CP passive.

    The charged trait is really nice in certain roles. A healer using a lightning staff in charged will concuss and set enemies off balance more often creating opportunities for more damage from the group. Burning after HotR update is supposed to do about double the damage as before so can be great for mDKs and such.

    It works very good (especially in vMA). Just make sure to use a shock-damage enchant on that lightning staff though or else it won´t proc as often.

    You still need wall of elements for that. If so, then yeah, charged is decent.
