The Legendary Ley-Line Anomalies are coalesced ley line energy which have taken humanoid shapes. Though they are not naturally hostile, their presence causes heavy magical disruptions around themselves.

Combat abilities[edit]

  • Only Vulnerable While Attacking
  • Will begin running across the map upon spawning and when hitting 75%, 50%, and 25% health.
  • Level of Anomaly changes based on area. When the level changes, it will disappear for a second and show a spawning animation before continuing on the run.
  • Will become untargetable, /cower, and spawn several Anomaly Fragments for a minute when defiance bar is broken; during this time, its defiance bar is "locked" from regenerating.
  • The defiance bar will be "locked" while it is vulnerable to attacks.

  • Annihilation Smash - After gathering energy for a second, indicated by a surging ley energy aura, the anomaly jumps up and slams into the ground, dealing extremely high damage. Used only when health is below 50%.
  • Ley-energy Overload - After absorbing too many coalescences, the anomaly begins glowing and explodes in a massive burst of magical energy. Applies stacks of Electrolyze.
  • Ley-Line Burst - The anomaly charges energy before blasting players back with both hands dealing moderate damage and causing Knockback.png Knockback.
  • Ley-Line Kick - Does light damage and causes Knockback.png Knockback

Related achievements[edit]


  • Drops the elemental variant of the Gilded Strongbox.
  • It spawns in one of the locations above every 2 hours and spawns in the same map every 6 hours. A Ley-Infused Lodestone will indicate which map it is in or just spawned in.
  • While the defiance bar is recovering or vulnerable to crowd control, only a negligible fraction of condition damage will damage it.
  • Due to high number of players, the anomaly's model may be behind its actual placement in the world, making it hard to target. The model and placement realign when it "respawns" for level adjustment.
  • The event will fail after 20 minutes if the anomaly is not defeated.
  • This Legendary-rank enemy does not count toward the Wizard's Vault weekly quest [Defeat 1 Legendary-rank Enemy]
