Information Edit

  • The Archdemon starts to use this attack once the fight enters phase two, which is when its health is at or below 75% and above 50%.
  • Creatures in the area of effect who are not darkspawn take 8 spirit damage upon initial contact and every 5s thereafter, as well as suffer -25% movement speed, -30 attack, and -30 defense unless they pass a physical resistance check against the Archdemon's willpower (the check is every 5s).
  • Darkspawn in the area of effect regain 8 health every 5s, and suffer -30% to all elemental resistances.
  • Duration: 12s.
  • Range: 60m.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.

Trivia Edit

  • The code suggests this ability was perhaps intended to give darkspawn a buff rather than a debuff.
