Seasonal Raid Affixes

Seasonal Affixes are special affixes that only appear during specific seasons.

Fated Power, Season 4

The Fated Power affixes give players additional mechanics to deal with, and once they've dealt with the mechanic, they grant a beneficial effect.

Fated Power: Creation Spark

  • Dispel Creation Spark (magic) to remove the moderate damage over time effect on two random players. This occurs about every 45-seconds, delayed by some boss abilities and intermissions.
    • At least one player must stand in the subsequent impact locations to prevent the moderate damage dealt to all players.
      • All players in an impact location gain increased attack and casting speed, cooldown rate, periodic effect tick rate, and movement speed.

Fated Power: Reconfiguration Emitter

  • Spawns a Reconfiguration Emitter about every 60-seconds, delayed by some boss abilities and intermissions.
    • Reconfiguration Emitter
      • Slowly gains Energy over time while alive.
      • Interrupt Reconfiguration Emitter to prevent the heavy damage dealt to all players.
        • Interrupted casts still deal light damage to all players.
      • Upon death, grants all players increased mastery, critical strike, versatility, and avoidance based on its Energy level.

Fated Power: Chaotic Essence

  • Spawns a Chaotic Mote about every 60-seconds, delayed by some boss abilities and intermissions.
    • Chaotic Mote
      • Immediately begins casting Chaotic Mote, which deals heavy to fatal damage to all players.
      • Right-clicking the Mote stops the cast and causes it to split into three Motes.
      • All subsequent Motes deal light damage over time to random players with Chaotic Mote.
        • Each time a Mote is killed, it splits into three Motes.
      • After 15-seconds, the Chaotic Motes dissipate, granting all players increased damage, healing, and absorption done based on the number of Motes that were killed.

Fated Power: Protoform Barrier

  • Purge Protoform Barrier from the affected enemy to prevent the light damage over time dealt to all players. This occurs about every 60-seconds, delayed by some boss abilities and intermissions.
    • This manifests an attackable Protoform Barrier, a friendly healable Protoform Barrier, and applies a shared damage absorption shield to all enemies.
    • Players have 15-seconds to deplete the damage absorption shield by damaging enemies or healing the friendly Protoform Barrier.
      • Failing to deplete the absorption effect causes all players to take moderate damage and then moderate damage over time.
      • Successfully depleting the shield causes all enemies to take the damage dealt to them while the shield was active, and grants all players increased damage, healing, and absorption done.
