Upgrade interface: applying an Infusion to an ascended staff.

Infusions are a type of upgrade component that go into infusion slots, which can be found on all ascended and legendary equipment except amulets, as well as in a few exotic back items. Infusions are the primary source of agony resistance, which is important to survive the higher levels of Fractals of the Mists (although not all infusions provide agony resistance).

All the infusions from an equipment piece can be removed using an Infusion Extraction Device.

Types of Infusions[edit]

There are two major types of infusions: Agony Infusions and Attribute Infusions.

Agony Infusions[edit]

Agony Infusions provide the attribute Agony Resistance, which protects players from Agony, a mechanic encountered within the Fractals of the Mists.

Basic Agony Infusions[edit]

Basic Agony Infusions provide from +1 to +30 Agony Resistance, and can be upgraded by Artificers or by trading with INFUZ-5959.

See Agony Infusion for an overview.

Simple Infusions[edit]

Simple Infusions provide +3, +5, or +7 Agony Resistance. The simple infusions function as a normal Agony Infusion.

The +5 and +7 simple infusions are no longer available for purchase however they still function. They were purchasable for Fractal Relic.png Fractal Relics and can be refunded for 75 and 150 relics, respectively, at INFUZ-5959.

Attribute Infusions[edit]

Attribute Infusions provide a small bonus to Power, Precision, Condition Damage, Toughness, Vitality or Healing Power.

Precise Precision.png Precision

Resilient Toughness.png Toughness
Vital Vitality.png Vitality
Healing Healing Power.png Healing Power

Basic Attribute Infusion[edit]

These provide +4 to their respective attribute and are purchased from Laurel Merchants for 5 Laurel.png.

Standard Attribute Infusion[edit]

Standard Attribute Infusions provide +5 to their respective attribute, and +5, +7 or +9 Agony Resistance. They can be obtained from INFUZ-5959 for three +5/+7/+9 Agony Infusions and 5/10/20 Integrated Fractal Matrices.

The +5 and +7 attribute infusions can be upgraded to their next value through INFUZ-5959 by using 2 of the current attribute infusion with 6 agony infusions of the same value.

Special Attribute Infusions[edit]

These infusions provide +5 to an attribute and +9 Agony Resistance and also provide a unique aura to the character with one equipped.

These infusions (with the exception of Ghostly Infusions) have a Mystic Forge recipe that can change the attribute bonus they provide.

WvW Infusions[edit]

There are two versions of Attribute WvW Infusions, Offensive and Defensive. Both are purchased from WvW Laurel Merchants for 5 Laurel.png +

, or from a Battle Historian for

Offensive versions provide +5 Power, Precision, or Condition Damage, and +1% Damage to Guards, Lords, and Supervisors.

Defensive versions provide +5 Toughness, Vitality, or Healing Power, and -1% Damage taken from Guards, Lords, and Supervisors.

Notes[edit]

  • Infusions are lost when upgrading ascended items in the Mystic Forge, since the original item is consumed in the crafting process. Make sure to use an Infusion Extraction Device before you do so.
  • When crafting the standard attribute infusions, it is cheaper to start by crafting the +5 attribute infusions and then use them to create a +7 one, and use two +7 to craft a +9, though the cost difference is really small.
Cost to create one +5 attribute infusion 48 5 15
Cost to upgrade two +5 into one +7 192 10 180
Cost to create one +7 attribute infusion 192 10 189
Cost to upgrade four +5 into two +7 into one +9 768 20 738
Cost to upgrade two +7 into one +9 768 20 756
Cost to create one +9 attribute infusion 768 20 765

Trivia[edit]

  • In Guild Wars, infusion was the process of imbuing armor pieces with magic to protect against the mursaat's Spectral Agony.
  • Prior to the July 26, 2016 update, there were 5 infusion types: offensive, defensive, utility, versatile (omni), and agony. Versatile infusions could be placed in non-agony infusion slots. The update simplified the types to Infusions (offensive, defensive, versatile, and agony) and Enrichments (utility).
  • The Versatile Bounteous Infusion is an unimplemented infusion that appears in the API.
