Special Ability

The Special Ability for Chaos is called Controlled Chaos.

Whenever you do damage with a Chaos ability - the damage done has a 30% chance be an amount that is divisible by 8. When the damage done is divisible by 8, then you will generate between 2 and 4 Paradoxes. Once you have 8 Paradoxes, the Controlled Chaos ability will trigger one of three possible events - Singularities, Enigmas, Doppelgangers.

  • Singularities - Singularities are three randomly placed circular AoE effects. Any enemies within the area of effect will be knocked down and Impaired for 3 seconds
  • Enigmas - Enigmas are Buffs placed on a random nearby enemy with a minor bonus to the enemy. However, you purge this buff off the enemy, or kill them while it is still running, you will gain a more powerful version of the Buff for yourself. The possible buffs are:
  • Dopplegangers - Dopplegangers are two alternate versions of you from a parallels universe that appear and attack your target. These two Dopplegangers will remain for Unknown seconds, and will use one of the three following abilities to attack with:
    • Dissonance - A single target attack that hits targeted enemies once for a high amount of damage
    • Dissipation - A single target channeled attacked that hits enemies 5 times for a low amount of damage per hit
    • Cacophony - A TAoE attack that hits up to 6 enemies once for a moderate amount of damage
