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.
- Primary article: Agony Infusion
Agony Infusions provide between +1 and +30 Agony Resistance. They can be found as loot in Fractals of the Mists, with the +1 version being the most common. Agony Infusions can be upgraded either by crafting by an artificer or by trading with INFUZ-5959. Each tier requires two of the previous tier to craft, which makes the highest tiers prohibitively expensive.
These should be your primary source of agony resistance, unless you're using one of the (more expensive) infusions below that offer agony resistance together with extra stats.
- +1 Agony Infusion through to +30
Alternatively, there exist Simple Infusions which provide +3, +5, or +7 Agony Resistance, but which can not be upgraded. +5 and +7 versions were purchasable for Fractal Relics, but are no longer available, and can be refunded for 75 and 150 relics respectively at INFUZ-5959.
