An Infusion is a type of upgrade component that goes into infusion slots, which can be found on ascended equipment, legendary weapons and a few non-ascended back items. Infusions are the primary source of agony resistance, which is important to surviving the higher levels of Fractals of the Mists (although not all infusions provide agony resistance).

Depending on the infusion, they are available from Fractals, Laurel merchants (using Laurels), raids, or the Mystic Forge.

Types[edit]

  • Infusions can be placed in Infusion slots.
    • Agony Infusions provide +1 to +30 agony resistance. They can be obtained from Fractal rewards, and salvaging ascended equipment.

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.
Enrichments still contain the description "Double-click to apply to an utility infusion slot" even though the slots have been renamed to "Enrichment Slot".

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).
