Within the Spiral Abyss and certain Domains, monsters may have an aura that can cast special effects.

Debuff Abilities

  • The aura from enemies will apply its debuff to the in-range characters currently on the field. Once you switch the on-field character to next character, the debuff will be inherited by next character.
    • The effect of auras from enemies only influence the characters currently on the field.
    • When the element gauges of the aura is depleted, auras and debuffs on characters will disappear immediately.
  • The interval between each pulse is 15 seconds.
    • After starting the challenge, it takes 15 seconds for the enemy to release the first pulse.
  • Elemental debuffs are marked with the element in question inside of a prohibitory 🚫 symbol.

The duration of the aura from enemies is not determined by the elemental gauge of the aura.

  • The durations of auras are 20 seconds.
  • The gauges of auras are 1 unit.
  • Durations of auras from enemies cannot reduced by Elemental Resonance. It is unknown whether Artifacts can reduce durations of auras from enemies.[citation needed]
  • The Pyro DMG from Smoldering Flames has 0 Pyro.

  • Damage is determined by the base multiplier of the skill, the level multiplier of the domain, and the resistance of the target to the damage type.
  • The durations of applying aura on characters is determined by the elemental gauge, which is similar to the ones of attacks from characters.
  • Defeating the enemy that cast the skill will immediately cause the skill's effects to despawn. (This does not include any damage or elements already afflicted by these effects; e.g., Pursuing Fireball will disappear, but any character who was previously hit by it will still be affected by Pyro.)
  • The skill has a fixed cooldown.
