  • It was the first world boss to implement the new Defiance bar mechanics and the new particle effects management/rendering technique called "material replacement".[1]
    • The material replacement system is a technique that allows for not only replacing texture data, but also animating them through shaders/texture sets over fixed durations of time, therefore creating visibly impressive effects attached to a model while still preventing framerate from dropping too much.
